If you or someone you know is under investigation for a crime, you should contact our Grand Rapids criminal defense attorneys immediately. We can immediately assess the situation and provide you with immediate advice.

At the beginning of the investigation, officers typically do not read you your Miranda warnings because you are not in custody. The officers can gather extensive evidence and get important admissions that would not be available if you had an attorney. People mistakenly think they can “talk their way out of the situation”. This is the farthest from the truth. Criminal defendants make the biggest mistakes during the initial investigation. They admit to elements of the crime that the police cannot prove. They agree to searches of their car and home. We can immediately advise you of your rights and contact the investigating officer and tell them that you have an attorney and that they are not to question you. We may even be able to stop charges from being issued against you. At a minimum, we have preserved your situation so that you do not make things worse.

After the initial phone call with one of our Grand Rapids criminal defense attorneys, we will schedule an immediate appointment to devise a defense strategy. After we are retained, will contact the investigating officer and the police department that we represent you and that should immediately stop contacting you. We also advise the officer that in the event a warrant for your arrest is issued, that they should contact us immediately so that we can ensure your rights are protected.
We can do the best job for you the earlier we are involved in your case. Waiting until the last minute can limit your options.
