Do Not Speak to the Police

You may believe that you can improve your situation by talking your way out of it — you can’t. Anything you say to the police will eventually be used against you. In a mortgage fraud case, by the time the investigators want to talk to you the decision to charge you has likely already been made. In fact, when they approach you with questions they may already have an arrest warrant. Even if you think your words are helping, they may be interpreted in such a way as to incriminate you. Do not fall for this trap.

Call an Attorney Instead — the sooner, the better. When retained early in a case, the lawyers at Joyce & Bittner can make a critical difference, sometimes even succeeding in having cases dropped before the charges have been officially filed.

We are ready to help you now. To schedule a free initial consultation, call us at 412-281-9919 or toll free at 1-800-299-5530 or contact us online any time.
