What do I do if I've been arrested?

Many people think that because they're being questioned by the police they can't refuse to speak. This is not the case.

If you've been arrested, the officer must inform you of your rights (commonly known as Miranda rights). Included in these rights are your right to remain silent and your right to an attorney. Should you be arrested, invoke your right to remain silent and contact an Illinois criminal defense lawyer at Madsen, Sugden & Gottemoller immediately.
