What To Do If You Are Under Investigation
Do you have reason to believe that you are under investigation by law enforcement authorities? Have the police come to your home or brought you into the station for questioning? If so, you face a grave threat.
The conversation can begin pleasantly enough, with the detective or officer asking you for help in “clearing up” some things. But the detective or officer is not really interested in “clearing up” the matter. He or she is looking for evidence to place you under arrest.
“Anything you say can and will be used against you” is not a meaningless phrase. The police are serious about their work, and you need to get serious, too. If you believe you are under investigation, do not delay. You need sound legal advice as soon as possible.

The Best Thing You Can Do for Yourself
You may think that answering a few questions will make the police leave you alone. But you would be wrong. Even a one-word response could confirm what the police have already learned and deepen the hole you are in.
Instead, you should politely decline to answer questions until you have talked with an attorney at Gilroy Napoli Short Law Group. An attorney can review your case and advise you about how you should respond, if at all. If necessary, we can take action to begin your defense effort. This can save precious time if you are about to be charged.
Are you under investigation? The best thing you can do for yourself is to get the advice of an experienced criminal defense lawyer at Gilroy Napoli Short Law Group. Your freedom may depend on it.
