When should I contact an attorney?

You should retain the services of a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible after you are contacted by police about any alleged criminal activity.  Even if you believe that you are under investigation by police, you should strongly consider retaining legal representation right away.  In any case, you should never speak to the police or investigators if your attorney is not also present; your attorney will know how to help you protect your rights throughout every stage of the legal process.

If you believe that you may be charged with a crime, or if you have already been charged with an offense, you should speak with a Westchester criminal defense attorney at the Law Offices of Richard A. Portale, P.C., to begin developing a legal strategy capable of challenging every aspect of the case against you.  To discuss the particulars of your charges with an attorney in Westchester, please call our offices at (914) 772-3166 today.
