What To Do When You're Under Investigation

For more serious allegations, it is likely that police and prosecutors will conduct a thorough investigation into you and your activities so they can build a strong case. If you learn you are under investigation, seek legal representation immediately.

Whitestone Young, PC, of Fairfax is one of Northern Virginia's premier criminal defense firms. For more than 40 years, our lawyers have been protecting the rights, freedoms and reputations of people facing serious state and federal criminal charges. We can provide the same straightforward advice and aggressive representation for you.

Signs That You Are Under Criminal Investigation

The first, most obvious sign is if police start asking you questions and invite you to come to the station for additional questioning. You do not have to answer their questions. Additionally, you do not have to let police search your home or vehicle if they do not have a search warrant. Do not make their jobs easier on them.

Another sign may be if you find out from a family member, friend or business associate that police were asking about you. People may also testify before a grand jury. This is a sign that prosecutors are intending to charge you with a crime.

Why You Need An Attorney

If you wait until you are arrested to get legal help, you could be putting yourself at a disadvantage. The sooner our attorneys can get to work building our own case, including gathering evidence and talking to witnesses, the better.

Through early intervention in many cases, our attorneys helped clients avoid charges ever being filed or achieved quick dismissals after an arrest. If you are arrested and we have already started work on your case, you will be in a much better position for a positive outcome.
