What to do when stopped

Regardless of how positive you are that you’re innocent of charges, if accused of serious offenses such as reckless driving, DWI or DUI, know that you must call criminal defense representation immediately. A Long Island DWI attorney will speak to you on the phone, often as late as 10:00 PM. You will get needed advice about what to say and what not to say if questioned. Your first call is free. Do not say anything to officials until you have the legal information you need to make informed decisions. Your most damaging move is to emotionally try to explain away any possibly suspicious behavior while you are stressed, over-tired, ill or physically impaired. Do not react defensively or show anger. If you are detained, be a listener more than a talker. Then ask to contact someone to assist you as soon as you are allowed.

When you call a Long Island DWI attorney, you’ll get information over the phone on how to delay the process legally, until your representative is able to gather the information you need and meet with you in person. Before responding to requests from local police or federal investigators, always place a call to your legal adviser and follow instructions exactly. All questions that you have should be asked through your attorney. This will ensure that possible misrepresentations will not lead you into problems.

You always want to be clear to authorities that you are not avoiding arrest. Your attorney will help you with how. Also, your full cooperation, through your attorney, will help in court when the judge is determining bail arrangements or whether or not you are a flight risk. You’ll find yourself looking back regretfully, regarding the things you said or the way you reacted under stress, if you weren’t able to quietly wait for the process to move forward. Use legal steps for your own protection.

Weigh the expense of calling an attorney early in the process. You need to consider how making the wrong choices, due to lack of the right information, will cost you more. If you are found guilty, or plead guilty to the wrong charge because you didn’t understand the differences in legal terminology, your vehicle insurance will be increased for years. Just that one consequence, for a first time offender, will cost you thousands of dollars. It’s smarter to get professional legal information in advance.
