Law enforcement can decide on your perceived guilt or innocence fast, which is why you should keep your thoughts close to the vest until you speak to one of our attorneys. Securing a trusted criminal lawyer is of utmost importance. Here at Borsberry Law, we will tell you it’s imperative that you remain silent when faced by police questioning in an alleged crime. You know that saying: “anything you say CAN and WILL be used against you in a court of law”? Well, it happens to be true! Once you contact Borsberry Law Offices PC, we will tell you what to do. Till then, assume everyone is listening and judging.

Same goes for initial questioning. Those probes may seem innocent enough, but they are also recorded and can lead to unjust assumptions later. If and when you are formally charged, don’t discuss the case with anyone. Instead, simply say “I won’t answer your questions until I speak to Borsberry.” Assuming the police will take you at your word is unwise. They can and will arrest you with probable cause, so just let us do the talking.
