Why You Should Always Remain Silent and Cooperative When Arrested

If you suspect you may be arrested, knowing your rights can save you from making serious errors.

Anything you say and do will be used against you. When police take you into custody, always be polite, cooperative, and silent. It is ok to be upset and overwhelmed. However, it is not ok to act out by:

  • Resisting arrest (e.g., going limp, refusing to follow instructions, hitting, kicking, running away)
  • Insulting police officers
  • Arguing with the officers (e.g., demanding to be told the charges, asking “what did I do”)

Police officers will begin to question you immediately. While remaining cooperative, simply state that you wish to remain silent and ask for a lawyer.

You have the right to remain silent and hire a lawyer.

Attorney Richard Suzuki is a former prosecutor. He knows what the prosecution will look for in your case and how to craft the best defense. Contact our law offices as soon as possible.

How to Handle False Accusations of Domestic Violence in Phoenix

More than 20 million people are falsely accused of domestic violence a year. People make false allegations for many reasons:

  • Retaliation over a breakup
  • To gain the upper hand in a divorce or custody battle
  • Slander a person’s reputation

What Happens After a Domestic
Violence Conviction?

A domestic violence conviction will affect every aspect of your life. Having a criminal record often means losing your:
  • Career
  • Promotion
  • Professional license
  • Parental rights (e.g., child custody, visitation)
  • Immigration status
  • Gun rights

What if Your Accuser Wants to Drop the Charges?

Accusers have a right to press charges, but they cannot drop charges.

In some cases, a skilled attorney can craft a strong enough defense that they can persuade the prosecution to drop the charges.

If the case must proceed to trial, our criminal defense lawyers have the experience and resources you need.

Attorney Defend My Case?

Our domestic violence attorneys can employ several strategies to protect your freedom, including:

  • Lack of evidence
  • Self-defense
  • False accusations
  • Violation of civil rights
  • Lack of criminal intent
