Police Interviews/Questioning

Massachusetts Police Interrogation Lawyer
Boston Police Questioning Attorney

Do I have to go to the police station for an interview?

If a member of any Massachusetts police department has contacted you, and requested that you come down to the station for questioning, it is extremely important that you contact a criminal defense attorney ASAP.  We can discuss your situation, and I will help assess the best approach based on the facts and circumstances as you know them to be.  Sometimes it is best to grant the police an interview, and sometimes it is not.  In most circumstances, you are not required to speak to police, and you certainly should not do so without a lawyer. You will only know how to approach this very sensitive matter if you consult with an experienced Massachusetts criminal lawyer.  If we determine that an interview is the best approach, I will represent you at that interview and make sure that your rights are protected.  It is unlikely that the police will advise you of your rights prior to such questioning- and they are not required to do so if you showed up at the station voluntarily (i.e. you were not already arrested).  They will use tactics to elicit information from you that may later be used against you in court.  It is therefore very important to make sure that you have legal representation to ensure that the police act fairly and you do not answer any questions that may later harm you.

I am available for a free initial consultation. Contact my office if the police want to speak with you.

Client Reviews
"Ben Urbelis recently represented me in an OUI case in which I had crashed my car. I honestly did not believe I had any chance of beating it, but fortunately for me Ben was outstanding and all charges were dropped. In my first hearing he was calm, assertive and straight to the point. I was extremely impressed and satisfied. I left my hearing feeling confident that I had made the right choice of hiring him. I am positive I would have lost this case and walked away with an OUI if I hadn't. I am very happy with how he handled my case and how reassured I felt having him as my lawyer." MC
"When I found myself charged with my 3rd DUI I was certain without a doubt that I was facing 6 months to 2 1/2 years in state prison. I can’t believe you were able to guide me calmly through the whole nerve wracking process, never sugar coating anything, staying honest and always keeping me informed the whole time. I still can’t believe that in the end you pulled off a miracle to avoidany jail time. I would recommend you to anyone in the same situation. Thank you so much. You saved me.” JL

"Thank you for your excellent representation in this matter. Coming from out of town, it wasreassuringto have an attorney who was so well organized and on top of the process. It was very clear that the judge was not only familiar with you, but had a great deal of respect for you in the courtroom. I appreciate all the effort you put into my case, and thank you again for a successful representation!" RC
