What should you do?

If you are charged with a criminal offence, or you think you may be charged with a criminal offence, or the Police or other investigators want to speak to you, you need to think and act quickly.   The answers to the most common, and important, questions we are asked by people facing criminal charges are listed below.

Q. Should I speak to a lawyer first?

A. Yes, and that lawyer should be an experienced criminal lawyer.

Q. Do I have to answer the Police questions?

A. In most cases you have to provide your name and address, and in the case of a motor vehicle accident:
  • your licence and car registration details
  • information about who was driving
Given the opportunity you should first speak with your lawyer before speaking to the Police and answering questions.
In some cases it is a good idea to speak fully and frankly to the Police. In some cases it may not be such a good idea. An experienced criminal lawyer will help you make the right decision.
