When Do I Need An Attorney?

The first few hours of your emergency are crucial. Waiting to hire a lawyer can cause unnecessary worry and vulnerability. Serious mistakes can be made when people wait to hire an attorney. You need an experienced legal team to guide you through what can be a confusing and overwhelming legal process.

There’s often an urgent need to protect evidence, preserve a scene, and interview witnesses. Our work for our clients begins immediately after your first call. Call (203) 822-6610 to speak with a lawyer during a consultation in New Canaan, Stamford, Bridgeport or Norwalk.

When To Call A Criminal Defense Attorney

The minute that you are contacted by any law enforcement official, or expect that you will be contacted, you should seek advice from an experienced, competent criminal defense team such as The Maddox Law Firm. Do not wait and see what happens. Do not try to speak with law enforcement without your lawyer present, hoping that your cooperation will gain you some advantage. Any such advantage can only be truly secured with the assistance of an experienced criminal defense attorney.

Once you have contacted the right law firm, one that is trial-tested and committed to its clients’ protection, the law firm can only begin to help you with the information that it has been provided. Most of that information will come from you at first.

Then, with the help of your legal team, you should preserve any available evidence, and share any information that you have about the names and locations of witnesses. Even if your circumstances seem impossibly difficult to you, immediately contacting an experienced criminal defense firm will allow your team to develop your defense early and plan the best way to protect you.

In short, communicate openly and without hesitation with your legal team, so that every member of the firm can defend you and move you forward. We rely upon this type of relationship with every one of our clients. Our attorneys understand what needs to be done to protect you, defend you, and safeguard your rights
