Should I consult with an attorney before I speak to the police?

In a criminal situation, ask to speak to your attorney first before you give a statement to the police.

If you believe that you might be considered a suspect at the time of a crime or think that you could be considered a suspect at a later date, make sure you speak to an attorney before you speak freely with the police. Any information you give to the police, whether written or voiced, can be used against you in the court of law.
