What Our Massachusetts Law Firm Can Do for You — Before You Are Charged!
While there are never any guarantees when police, law enforcement and prosecutors are involved, our success rate suggests that our prearrest assistance serves at least three purposes:
- We attempt to avoid the filing of charges against you.
- We begin putting together your defense in case you are actually charged with a crime.
- We work to do damage control in the event that criminal charges are filed against you later.
Investigating Your Case Thoroughly
Our defense attorneys have developed many proactive strategies that we use to help clients before they are charged. Our techniques involve witness interviews, independent investigations, evaluations of evidence, legal research, bringing in our own scientific and forensic experts, locating witnesses, and gathering information from the police.
Have You Been Contacted by Massachusetts Investigators?
If you remember nothing else, remember that police and prosecutors in central Massachusetts are not your friends. No matter what they say, remember that they are not trying to help you. Often, we see how people are surprised when police officers or investigators visit them and insist that they just need a few questions answered to clear up a small misunderstanding. Truth is, this gets people to lower their guard and say and do things that are ill-advised.
Beware of a Police Officer Attempting to Minimize an Investigation
If you are told, "This is just a routine investigation," ask yourself, "For whom is it routine?" It may be routine for the officer — he or she probably investigates someone every day, but it is not routine for you.
Being investigated is not a trivial matter. If the investigator refuses to disclose who or what is being investigated, you should not cooperate. If he or she is not going to be upfront with you, it is not in your best interest to be cooperative.
