  When you are facing a criminal investigation or criminal charges, timely, professional advice is crucial to protecting your rights. Many people are trapped or coerced into giving confessions and making admissions in the mistaken belief that they can "clear things up"  on their own.  If you are facing criminal charges or a criminal investigation,  knowledge of your rights and professional representation can help to protect you from making bad decisions which can have serious consequences for your future.
