Steps to Take When a Family Member or Friend Has Been Arrested in Illinois

Chicago, IL Criminal Defense Attorneys

When a friend or family member has been arrested and is being held at the police station, regardless of the charges, they need a lawyer as soon as possible. Your friend or loved one should not make any statements to the police without an attorney present, even if they have done nothing wrong or illegal.

If someone you know has been arrested, that means law enforcement has reasonable suspicion that the person was involved in criminal activity. No matter how nice or pleasant the police may seem, their job is to collect information and to get your friend or family member to make a statement. Any statement or comment your loved one makes could be used against them later.

Every criminal suspect has the right to remain silent, but law enforcement can make it difficult to exercise that right. That is why anyone who has been arrested needs a lawyer immediately. A skilled criminal defense attorney from Luisi Legal Group can help your family member or friend protect their rights and avoid providing potentially incriminating statements to the police.
