Do I need to hire a lawyer if the police want to speak to me?

It’s not always necessary to hire an attorney, or lawyer, if the police hope to speak with you. However, if you have any inclination to speak to the police, I always encourage folks to talk to an attorney first. If someone is not in a financial position to hire a lawyer, or if they’re simply comfortable going forward on their own, they certainly can do that. However, I would always encourage folks to never speak to police unless you have an attorney present because there are just so many risks involved it that.
