We Communicate With Law Enforcement On Your Behalf

Often, people may believe that the criminal defense process begins with an arrest. However, many Florida criminal cases begin before you are ever placed in handcuffs. In order for police to lawfully arrest you, they must have a valid arrest warrant or must be able to demonstrate that they had probable cause to believe that you had committed a crime. In many instances, extensive investigation may be required in order for law enforcement to show the necessary probable cause and so police may wish to interview you to gather information regarding the alleged crime.

Though police may state you are not under arrest during questioning sessions, if you are a suspect, you can always be sure they are trying to get information in order to arrest you. Police may legally use dishonest tactics in order to elicit a confession or other admissions that may place you under greater suspicion. Under many circumstances, you may believe you are helping your own case, but end up saying something that unintentionally incriminates you. For this reason, it is imperative to consult with an experienced criminal defense lawyer at the Cobb Criminal Defense Law Firm in Florida before you agree to speak with the police.
