In certain criminal matters, a witness may need the expertise of a lawyer to determine how to respond to a subpoena or a request to testify. Or, if you have been contacted by law enforcement or a prosecutor as a witness, and you are uncertain about how to respond, you can seek the advice or representation of a lawyer. In some instances, it may be in your best interest to invoke your Fifth Amendment privilege and refuse to testify about certain matters. In other circumstances, you may want your attorney to assist you in resolving some external matters that cause you some jeopardy before you provide testimony. It is important to consult an attorney about your options so you can make the best decision. And sometimes you may just want a lawyer to accompany you to an interview or to court, in case you have a question about what your rights and obligations may be during the proceeding. This is something we can help you with. Please call our office for a free consultation.
