West Palm Beach Attorney | 4 Things You Should Never Say to a Cop

You never know how you’re going to react in a certain situation until it happens to you. When having an interaction with a cop, there are a few things that can dig you into a deeper. So, be sure to never say these things to a cop and, instead, call our West Palm Beach attorney:

Anything

You have the right to remain silent. And in most cases, this is your best bet. This doesn’t mean to ignore all questions. You still need to provide your name and identification. But, if any specifics about the situation that could potentially be incriminating come up, the less you say, the better.

That They Can Search

There are only a few situations that the police should be searching any of your property. This includes if they have probable cause (ex. they see evidence through a window), there is reasonable suspicion or a search warrant for a particular area. You should not invite a cop to search your property. And, if they do so without consent, this evidence may not be used in court.

Why do I need a West Palm Beach attorney?

An Admission

If you’re in a suspicious situation, do not admit to anything. This is the time to request to speak to a lawyer and then remain silent. This will ultimately provide you the most protection possible.

A Lie

Less is more. Do not lie to a police officer because it can and will be used against you in court. Even if it is a “white lie,” this can say more about your character, if not anything else.

Found the Best!

“David Olson has represented me on two occasions. I have since referred two of my friends and my nephew to him, and they have all told me they’ll always be grateful for that. Mr. Olson somehow had the charges dropped in both of my cases (actually, I do know how, because he and his staff answered all my questions and explained in detail things that I never would have thought of).”

Compassionate Attorney

"My husband and I hired Mr. Olson to represent our son a Florida gun shot victim. We are New Jersey residents. From day one we felt comfortable with Mr. Olson and found him to be easy to talk to and a very good listener. This was important to us after our horrible experience with another attorney who was more concerned with hearing himself speak than our wishes."

Personable and Highly Intelligent!

“I saw David today to discuss some possible outcomes and possibilities of a probable future case. I did not know if I was going to be charged at all but I wanted to speak to someone to get a better idea of what I was looking at and what my options were. As soon as I shook his hand I felt very comfortable and respected. I laid it all out for him and asked him every last question I had, all of which were answered respectfully and intelligently.”

The Best of the Best

"I have known David Olson for over 20 yrs. now and have had my rough times in my past and unfortunately I ended up in trouble with the law and really needed help from a real lawyer. I needed someone to listen to my side of the story and really fight my cases in court for me and get the BEST results for my cases. A very close friend said the man for the job is David W Olson; So I contacted him & he came to me the very next day to hear me out and I knew he was the lawyer that would do the best for me and he did.”

Hearty Recommendation

"I hired Mr. Olson from recommendation by family member. He was immediately behind my situation and put me completely at ease. There were no false promises, very upfront as far as expectations and outcomes.

His assistant, Jessica was a joy to work with as well. They came to my house, interviewed witnesses, went above and beyond and always respond to my calls. I totally endorse this attorney."
