It is often terrifying when you are charged with a crime or even just suspected of being involved in criminal activity. You might get a phone call late at night from the police, or enforcement officers may show up at your door. They might even make an appearance at your office. If you have no idea why they are there or what the situation is, you might start to panic, and it can be a nerve-wracking and tense experience. Should you call a lawyer when you’re only being questioned?
Many people claim hiring a lawyer makes you look guilty. However, you are using your legal right to representation. Police have used the fact someone has had no representation to their advantage in the past. It has enabled them to ask questions a lawyer would not have allowed or to treat the person suspected of a crime unfairly.
Of course, it’s possible that you will be questioned for a crime without being a suspect. You may be called in to “assist with an investigation”. Again, it’s a disconcerting phrase, but it doesn’t mean you will be charged with a crime at any point in the near future. However, you may still want legal advice to make sure you are protected.
Our team of experienced criminal lawyers and dedicated support staff in Perth are here to help. At Paxman & Paxman, we believe in offering a premium criminal defence for those who need the best in-court representation. We have access to the best barristers and solicitors at the independent bar, as well as highly qualified expert witnesses across a variety of fields from computer forensics to serious vehicle crash consultants. By having access to these excellent resources, it means we can assemble the right team for your case.
If you are charged with a crime, you should call a lawyer immediately without delay. Many people hold off calling a lawyer because they are fixated on the fact that they are not guilty. It’s understandable to feel this way, but you still need a good legal counsel on your side, as you will certainly need a good criminal lawyer in Perth to provide representation for a court proceeding.
When choosing your lawyer, it’s important that you trust them to represent you. They need to be able to understand your case and whether you want to plead guilty or not guilty. A lawyer should advise you, but ultimately you should have the final say in how your case is argued. However, in certain scenarios, it is often wise to let the criminal lawyer take over and handle the case entirely on their judgement. To do this, you need to have complete trust in their services.
