There is nothing more scary than when the law is at your door to arrest someone. If that happens to you or someone you love, you should not resist (as you will not talk them out of an arrest). However, you should ABSOLUTELY AND UNEQUIVOCALLY INVOKE YOUR RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT and ASK FOR AN ATTORNEY. NO STATEMENTS UNTIL COMPETENT COUNSEL IS WITH YOU.
Remember, if the police are knocking, most likely they have made a decision to arrest you. The U.S. Constitution and the Georgia Constitution both give the valuable right to remain silent. USE IT! If you must talk, don’t go it alone. Go with competent counsel. I’ve represented individuals in criminal cases since 1987 and will use that experience for you from the bail proceedings through trial.
