Red face What should I do?

My friend is accused of a crime. The police want to interview me; they say I don’t need an attorney. What should I do?

Standard advice is to always have legal counsel involved when police are questioning, especially if the matter could somehow even remotely be connected back to you.

It may be worth at least discussing the situation with counsel before you make a decision.

You have the option to demand an attorney at any time of the interview. Further you don’t need to take words of police. You can also demand an attorney from the beginning.

Do not answer any questions without an attorney, no matter what.

You really need to consult with someone or an attorney who can help you out from this matter. You may speak to Mr. Voss from The Voss Law Firm, PC in Texas. He'll definitely help you.

Have an attorney...this is different than say if the police just happen to stop by and check something that may be happening on the spot, in the neighborhood. If they are calling you in you have some role to play most likely, even if just as a witness, and it is advisable to have counsel involved.

If you have any doubt then once get the free consultation with the personal injury attorney. It is adviced that never enclosed the details in front of insurance people or other authority unless you consult with the attorney because they can manipulate the statements given by you if you have been asked twice or thrice.

They ALWAYS say you don't need an attorney, but they have no idea what you really need and even when you do need counsel, they will still tell you you don't need counsel.
Make your decision without any input from the police. What they are saying is misleading.
