Police "Contact" and Protecting Your Rights
If you have been arrested or accused of a crime in Michigan, you are probably frightened, confused and concerned about your future and that of your family.
ANYONE WHO IS ARRESTED SHOULD REMAIN SILENT!
This means do NOT answer any questions asked by the police. Just politely say "I want a lawyer," and contact us as soon as possible. It is important to remember that police officers are trained to investigate crimes and gather evidence to build a case against you. In their search for evidence, rules are often bent and statements are taken out of context in the pursuit of an arrest and conviction. Unfortunately, most people provide the evidence needed to convict themselves to the police through confessions, statements, or other evidence. While it is always a good idea to be cooperative with law enforcement, it is important to do so in a controlled setting where you have access to our competent legal advice.
AT HENNER LAW PLLC, WE TAKE OUR RESPONSIBILITY AS CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEYS SERIOUSLY, AND ARE AVAILABLE TO HELP YOU 24 HOURS A DAY, 7 DAYS A WEEK, 365 DAYS A YEAR.
Our Michigan criminal defense attorneys are well aware of the inequality of power and material resources in the Michigan criminal justice system. The State of Michigan and United States Attorney's Office take advantage of an extensive staff of lawyers, police and agents, sophisticated crime labs and experts, and a huge budget provided by the taxpayers. This gives them a tremendous advantage because the legal system is based on the premise that "the whole truth" is that presented at the trial. If a person accused of a crime cannot challenge the government's case, or submit his or her own witnesses, then the jury by default will probably accept as true whatever evidence the prosecutor produces. At Henner Law PLLC, we work to level the playing field with the vast resources of the government, and provide outstanding legal advice, representation, and results to clients accused of state and federal crimes throughout Michigan. Our criminal lawyers appreciate the importance of defending the rights of the accused, and use all available means to ensure that our clients receive our high caliber legal advice.
