Why a Jail Visit by an Attorney is Important

If you have a friend or a loved one in the Adams County Jail, it's in their best interest to have an attorney visit them. This is because police detectives and investigators are quick to interview and interrogate them before a lawyer is able to advise them to exercise their right to remain silent. Unbeknownst to the inmate, there is a race to talk to them first. Because of the importance of remaining silent, it is wise to quickly contact an attorney to visit them in jail. One of our skilled lawyers will advise them of their rights and give them hope as we prepare their defense.

We will advise your loved one to exercise their right to remain silent.
