I get calls all of the time from people who have done nothing wrong looking for an Illinois criminal defense attorney. It’s usually some version of the police called me or came looking for me.

When they are innocent, they will often tell me that they want to go talk to the police. “I didn’t do anything wrong, so what should I be afraid of.” Or, “They’ve got nothing on me, and I can explain what really happened.”

I’m here to tell you to never ever talk to the police. You might like/love cops and it doesn’t matter, don’t do it. You might have a simple explanation as to what happened. Don’t do it. You have a constitutional right to remain silent and should at all times.

But don’t take my word for it. Listen to this criminal defense attorney who articulates why you should never talk way better than I can.

So even if you are innocent or just want it to go away, keep your mouth shut. Call a criminal defense attorney and let them do the talking for you. It will save you time, money, embarrassment, and so much more. If you have questions or want an attorney referral, call us any time at 312-346-5320.
