You know, a wise lawyer once said even a fish wouldn’t get caught if he didn’t open his mouth and it’s generally unwise to talk to the police when you’re unrepresented. Oftentimes, when I’m working with a client I will arrange an interview with law enforcement and after the client has had an opportunity to talk with me, and I attend the interview, typically. And this has the effect of keeping the police from dominating or controlling the interview in a fashion in which words are put in somebody’s mouth or someone is manipulated in any fashion. So generally, if the police want to talk to you the best answer is I would love to talk to you, let me arrange to get Mr. McClure there with us and we’ll get together and we’ll have a nice conversation.
