We’ll talk to real lawyers about their lives in and out of the practice of law, how they got to be lawyers and what their experience has been. I’m Louis Goodman, the host of the show, and yes, I’m a lawyer. Nobody’s perfect. He is a veteran of the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office.
1. REMAIN CALM AND COOPERATE
The most important thing you can do for yourself when you’ve been charged with a serious crime is to stay calm and cooperate with law enforcement. Any actions to the contrary can only hurt your case.
2. DO NOT SPEAK WITHOUT A LAWYER PRESENT
This step can be crucial to the outcome of your case. You are not required to answer any questions about the investigation without a lawyer present. As they say on T.V. — anything you say can and will be held against you in court.
3. CALL ME FOR HELP
