You may learn that you are a suspect in a case or are the subject of a criminal investigation before being arrested. State or federal prosecutors might urge you to cooperate in order to secure leniency if you are ultimately charged.
It is generally inadvisable to speak to government investigators or law enforcement officers without a legal representative present. You have the right to remain silent and should generally exercise your right to do so when being investigated. You should also in most cases avoid giving investigators access to your home, computer, or phone if they do not have a warrant.
If you suspect you may soon be arrested and charged, do not wait to contact our Austin & San Antonio criminal defense attorneys. We can represent you in all communications and interactions with investigators and begin proactively preparing a defense.
