What should I do if I think I may be charged with a crime?

Charged with a crime? Your reputation, career, money and freedom may be at risk. The lawyer you choose can mean the difference between winning and losing.

If you have been charged or believe you may be charged with a crime in one of North Carolina's state or federal courts, you need to act now. The decisions you make in the hours, days, and weeks to come may affect you for the rest of your life. You have rights. What are they? When should you use them? Should you "answer a few questions" or ask for a lawyer? Should you give the police consent to search? Should you submit to a polygraph or lie-detector test? Does it make any difference that they did not read you your rights? Can you just explain why you did it? Do you have to prove that you did not do it?

Just because you were charged with a crime does not mean you will be found guilty. It does mean that you will be required to make decisions quickly. Good decisions are almost always the result of good information. You will get much of your information from your criminal defense lawyer. If your lawyer gives you good and reliable information, then you will make good decisions. If he does not, then you will not. The lawyer standing beside you when you make these critical decisions can make the difference between winning and losing, between vindication and incarceration, and between freedom and imprisonment.
