It is best to politely refuse to give a statement. You have no legal obligation to speak to Law Enforcement Agents (Local or Federal) and should suppress any urge you might have to give an "explanation".
Even during the course of an "investigation" you can politely refuse to answer any questions. A simple, "Officer, I appreciate you and the work you're doing. However, I do not wish to answer any questions at this time without first seeking the advice of my lawyer. Thank you for your understanding" will do just fine.
We will schedule an immediate appointment to discuss your case and, if retained, we will confirm your representation by counsel to the police or federal agents. We suggest that you refrain from speaking to others as your conversations may not be protected under privilege.
If an arrest is inevitable, in many cases The Law Offices of Victor Knapp can arrange for a date and time for you to self-surrender to avoid being inconveniently arrested at home or place of work and to have you spend as little time in custody as possible.

    thumb Alba A.


    After consultations with more then 4 lawyers, Mr Knapp stood out automatically, he was the only honest one and told me the truth and what to expect, without emptying my pocket. Very honest, case was dismissed due to his professional and experienced approach. His phone is saved in my contacts list, thats how good he is.

  •   My relative went to 2012/2013 New York for the New Year’s celebration.  He got drunk, got out of hand, got arrested, and in the midst of it, he decided he’s not gonna go down without a fight and, well, he didn’t.  Next thing you know there are 6 cops on top of him.

    He got charged with 19 different charges.  Victor Knapp was able to make an amicable plea to both the department and the judge and got my relative off with a disorderly conduct charge.

    A few months later I had some business in Queens.  The arbitrator was a former Judge and when I asked for a referral to an attorney she recommended Victor Knapp.  It blew my mind that it was same lawyer and had slipped my mind.  I called him up, his office was right across the street from the courthouse and he handled my business maters with extreme sensitivity and, again, got me the results that two other lawyers said would be a tough to impossible position to negotiate for.  Victor Knapp made it happen.

    In my family, he is TWO FOR TWO!

    thumb Nic N.

      Victor is a fantastic lawyer. The services he provides are of the highest quality. I wouldn’t recommend any other Criminal Attorney.

    Well, I do not have any words or how to best describe Mr. Knapp brilliance when it comes to his profession. He is a man of his word,if he says he will get a resolution on a case he gets it done..I had two cases with Mr Knapp and both cases was dismissed in a short period of time just as he described. This attorney has been the greatest when it came to defending me and working out a resolution with the prosecutor. I personally recommend him over any other criminal attorney, and I had a few of them that never gave me these type of results.
