Trust Your Lawyer - He Represents You, Not the Police
If you have been arrested, or if you are stopped by the police for questioning, remember that your lawyer is the person you should trust. Law enforcement investigators are specifically trained to get people who don't want to talk to them to open up and talk with them anyway. Just politely, but firmly, tell the officers, agents or detectives that you will need to retain an attorney before you can speak with them. Do not answer their questions. This cannot be stressed enough.
