When is the right time to contact a defense attorney?

The best time to call a criminal defense lawyer is before you answer any questions by the police other than what your name is.  You have a right to remain silent, and a right to speak to an attorney, but the Supreme Court has said you must assert that right in order for it to be protected. 

If the police begin to question you—whether they are direct about doing so or "just want to talk with you about a few things"—say this: "I would like to cooperate. First I need to speak to my attorney." Then stick to what you have said. You may need to repeat these words a few times. The police might try to convince you into answering just a few questions. They might do this by minimizing the degree to which they plan to interrogate you or suggesting that by not answering their questions you are slowing down their investigation. Stay on message: you want to cooperate and first you need to speak to your attorney. You do not need to explain why you want to speak to an attorney or answer any questions until you get one. The police must stop their questioning and grant you access to a phone call (use it to call an attorney) within a reasonable time and before they resume their interrogation.


When should I create my will and Trusts??

If you do not have a will, you should contact an Polich Tousignant Law Office attorney as soon as possible to have a will drafted on your behalf. If you die without a will, the government and statutory laws will determine how your assets are transferred. If you do not have a will, you will also lose the opportunity to select a guardian for any minor children.

If you do not have a trust, you should contact a lawyer to discuss the value of trusts and other tax avoidance strategies. The government will take plenty of your income and assets during your life. When you pass away, you want your family, friend or charitable interest to receive the lion's share of your assets, not the government. We can help you achieve this goal.

The goal of our wills, trust and estate planning practice is to help people preserve wealth, minimize exposure to unnecessary estate taxes and smoothly transfer their assets to their family, loved ones or other intended party.
