If you have been arrested or accused of a crime, it is important to speak with a Kent criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. As a person accused of a crime, you are entitled to certain state and federal constitutional rights - including the right to consult with your attorney before answering questions from the police.
The police are sometimes known to take advantage of people who are unaware of their legal rights, and consulting Kent criminal defense attorneys ensures that you will be safe. Many of our clients come to us for legal aid after they have already pleaded guilty or made self-incriminating statements to the police.
