Avoid Making a Mistake

We have successfully handled many cases where clients started out making mistakes. If you read this and wonder if you have made a mistake, relax. Let us help you. What follows are some common questions clients bring up and mistakes clients make when they are being investigated, arrested or prosecuted for a crime:



The United States Supreme Court put some basic protections in place with the case of Miranda vs. Arizona. You have heard the Miranda warnings countless times if you watch television or movies. Don’t ever waive your rights without talking to an attorney.


Police Want Me to Come in for an Interview

Really? Ask yourself why? More than likely they want to tape record an interview or put you in a little interview room with a camera up in the corner so they can video tape your statements. More than likely they are going to set you down in the corner with two police between you and the door and tell you that you are free to go. More than likely they are going to suggest that if you don’t have anything to hide you don’t need an attorney. All of this is designed to get you to talk and to make you feel that you don’t have any other choice. Here is what you need to know: If you are being investigated by police, you should never talk to the police until you have consulted with an attorney.


Police Want me to Take a Polygraph

Polygraphs can be a helpful tool. We have had hundreds of private polygraph tests administered on our clients. We have a long list of very competent polygraph examiners available to us. However, a police polygraph can easily cost you your freedom. Police officers are trained to be intimidating and coercive. A polygraph examination is very intimidating under any circumstances and police are trained to take advantage of that. How? Well, imagine being in a room without your attorney and having a police officer tell you that you failed your examination. Now imagine that you are still hooked up to the instrument and the officer is very aggressive, even yelling at you to explain why you failed the examination. Unfortunately this happens routinely, even when the suspect passed the test. Unless you have experienced this type of intimidation, its hard to know what it is like. Don’t take a police polygraph unless you have hired an attorney first and thoroughly discussed it with him/her.

I have used Brandy for several personal matters and have found her to be very professional. She got the results I was looking for each time. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for legal services.

Should I Tell My side of the Story?

Good question. And, we really need to discuss this. You shouldn’t make a decision based on what you read on the web. However, in most cases the answer is going to be no. There are many people in Michigan jails and prisons, on probation or with criminal records because they thought they would help themselves by talking to police. Talking to police when you are the target of an investigation is almost always bad. We have had plenty of police officers as clients and most of them “lawyer up” as soon as they know they are being investigated. Why? Because it’s always the right move. Don’t tell your side of the story without the help of an attorney!


Police Want a Second Interview

“We just need to clear up some details.” We have heard this many times and it usually means that they have nearly completed their investigation, clearly identified you as the suspect, and are ready to make an arrest. However, the prosecution would go a little better if they could probe a little deeper and get a videotape of you being confronted with certain facts they have gathered. We rarely allow second interviews of our clients.


Shouldn’t I Just Tell the Truth?

No. But, you should not lie either. This question comes up a lot when parents are trying to provide guidance for their children. It also comes up with people who have high moral standards and know they have made a mistake. We never tell people to lie, but telling the truth involves talking. Talking is almost always a big mistake if you are under indictment or investigation. Think of it this way, if telling the truth would mean going to prison and not talking would result in probation, which would you choose? Talking almost always makes things worse! Get an attorney on board before you make the decision to talk to the police.


If I Ask for an Attorney, Won’t I Look Guilty?

No. You will look intelligent. Really. Police understand that it is wise to hire an attorney. They just don’t want you to do it because it makes their job easier if they have unlimited access to a suspect and other witnesses friendly to a suspect.


Do I Want a Local Attorney?

You want a good attorney. In fact, you want the best attorney you can find and afford. The quality of the lawyer matters far more than the location. Judges respect good attorneys. It actually makes their jobs easier because when you appear in court with an incompetent attorney it raises the possibility of an appeal which could require a second trip through the court later on. You are not likely to find one of our attorneys on the golf course with a judge or prosecutor, but that is not really the issue. The issue is that we only have high quality, skilled and professional attorneys. Our team of criminal defense attorneys all have an excellent track record and a good reputation in the courts where we practice.

Stephanie proved to be superbly professional in her demeanor, but in telephone and email correspondence she demonstrated a very real sense of personal commitment. I retained her for a family member's case; I live out of state and I needed someone to advocate the family's concern to our loved one, but to also fill the role of advocate for the defendant. She exceeded my expectations in every way. I very much appreciate and respect her knowledge of the law but also her ability to interject the "story" behind the alcohol/drug offense defendant, and then present a truthful plan of rehabilitation for the client (my sister). In-fact, while she made absolutely no promises or predictions as to the ruling--the outcome for my sister and in-turn for all of us--was surprisingly better than we could have hoped for. When asked her impression of Stephanie, the first word my sister used is "Compassionate," quickly followed by the same descriptive characteristics detailed above.
