Many people think that if they have not officially been charged with a crime (only questioned by the police) that they do not need an attorney. Some are worried that asking for Bellevue criminal defense lawyers will make them appear guilty, and many end up incriminating themselves in front of the police. Some wait until after confessing or even pleading guilty to hire a criminal defense attorney.
Calling an experienced and reputable Bellevue criminal lawyer before you speak with the police prevents this. Additionally, the police may try to pressure you into allowing them to search your home or vehicle – and having your lawyer present to explain your rights will protect you completely from self-incrimination. Your lawyer will also be able to review all evidence against you to ensure that it was properly obtained, and you’ll be afforded the best guidance available to help you through the stress of a criminal trial.
