Criminal Defense Tips

Paul D. Cramm – Olathe and Johnson County, Kansas Criminal Defense Lawyer

From Surviving Arrest to Navigating Police Questioning and Choosing the Best Criminal Defense Attorney for Your Case – Follow These Criminal Defense Tips to Ensure the Best Possibe Outcom

If you are facing criminal charges in Johnson County, Kansas or any of the municipalities in the Kansas City Metro Area including Lenexa, Leawood, Mission, Merriam, Olathe, Overland Park or Shawnee, or if you are facing Federal Indictment in the District of Kansas or the Western District of Missouri, the decisions you make and the actions you take before you ever make your first appearance in Court can have a PROFOUND effect on the outcome of your case.

Sadly, the factual and legal defenses availble to even the very best criminal defense attorney are often determined before charges are even filed during a voluntary interview with police after waiver of one’s 5th Amendment Right to Remain Silent and 6th Amendment Right to Counsel.  Most of us would never even consider drilling our own teeth or taking out our own appendix.  So why on earth would anyone consider speeking freely with a police officer, negotiating their own plea agreement with a prosecutor, or representing themselves in Court?  The most important thing you can do if you find yourself under investigation for an alleged criminal offense or detained by police officers is to preserve absolutely every possible factual and legal defense by SAYING NOTHING!!!  Invoke your 5th Amendment Right to Remain Silent – Assert you 6th Amendment Right to Counsel.

What about hiring the best criminal defense lawyer for your case?  Should you go with the most expensive lawyer?  You get what you pay for, don’t you?  Should you hire the cheapest attorney?  Aren’t lawyers all the same?  They all had to graduate Law School and pass the Bar Exam, right?  What questions should you ask of prospective criminal defense attorneys?  What answers should you be listening for?  How much should this cost, anyway?
