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.

During regular business hours, call Gilroy Napoli Short Law Group at 503-747-7198 for a free initial consultation. After business hours, call our 24 Hour Emergency number at 503-697-2597. We answer our phones 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

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.

I just wanted to take a moment to say that I had a very smooth and great experience working with Jenna Richards. She was very attentive to my situation and was always quick to respond with information or answers to my questions. It felt like the whole process was in good hands with Jenna and I am grateful to have worked with her regarding my situation.

Amanda and this firm are the absolute BEST OF THE BEST. Talking to her for 30 seconds will get you more information than hiring most lawyers for 2 years. Wow. I am absolutely astonished at her skill and experience. She is very kind and incredibly helpful. Thank you so much!

I had the misfortune of being wrongfully accused of a crime. Like many other people, I looked to other's experiences along with online reviews for direction on who to have represent me. I quickly recognized how highly respected and experienced Mr. Jeff Napoli and his team were as they have earned a solid reputation throughout the Portland metro area. Mr. Napoli was always prompt in responding and communicating with me. Mr. Napoli went above and beyond in repeatedly contacting the district attorney's office on my behalf and equally kept me apprised of what was transpiring. Throughout this ordeal, I was also represented by Ms. Jenna Richards, a member of Mr. Napoli's team. My family and I were highly impressed. Both Jeff and Jenna conducted a thorough counter-investigation which clearly proved I was innocent of the charges against me. This was one of the most stressful periods in my life and I could not thank them enough for all of the help, attention and respect they showed me throughout this entire year-long ordeal. I highly recommend Gilroy, Napoli and Short law firm to anyone seeking top tier representation. Thank you Jeff, Jenna and their entire team!
