Always Consult Your Attorney

It’s important to have your attorney present at any time you communicate with law enforcement. You have the right to remain silent and the right to an attorney. Due to the communication barrier, as a non-English speaker, it is more likely that you may do or say something that misrepresents your case unintentionally. Anything you do or say can be used against you. Therefore it’s important that you speak to an attorney speaking Spanish as soon as possible to advise you of your rights.
