I just found out that I am under investigation for a crime. Do I need to hire a lawyer, even though I have not been charged with anything?

Hiring a lawyer to defend you during the investigation is probably one of the most important times to have legal counsel. If you are currently being investigated, a Seattle criminal defense attorney can help protect your rights by making sure that the investigators do not illegally obtain evidence against you that may later be used to incriminate you. You should hire a lawyer the moment you discover you are being investigated.
