I've Been Contacted or Charged by Law Enforcement, What's Next?

Being accused of or charged with a crime is one of the most serious and frightening experiences anyone can face. Unfortunately, law enforcement officials often use this fear to their advantage by coercing individuals to talk, or by promising leniency in exchange for cooperation. They often suggest that you would have nothing to hide if you are innocent.

Regardless if you are innocent or guilty, you should always elect to speak with a criminal attorney before agreeing to cooperate with authorities. Everything you say to them will be used against you in later proceedings, and also may be taken out of context. If you are asked to give a statement, tell the authorities that you will be contacting the Law Offices of David S. Shrager, and an attorney will contact them.

If you have already given a statement, it is crucial to contact us and cease further communication with law enforcement - we will devise a course of action to overcome any potentially incriminating statements you may have given. It's never too late - call our office today.
