Do I Have A Defense?
Just because someone has accused you of a violent crime does not mean the state can convict you. There are defenses, such as self-defense, that may apply in your case. It’s important to discuss the case with your lawyer before you talk to police. By talking to police, you may make it harder for your lawyer to use certain defenses.
