Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do if I am contacted by an investigator asking me to come and give a statement to law enforcement?

Even if you are completely innocent, you should be very cautious when scheduling an interview with law enforcement, and in fact it is often in your best interest to immediately contact a criminal defense lawyer before proceeding with an in-person interview.

After hearing the case we may suggest that it is not in your best interest to be interviewed by law enforcement, as everything you say can potentially be used against you in a future proceeding. You are presumed innocent so make sure you contact a trusted criminal lawyer first before speaking with law enforcement.

Can I hire an attorney if I have been charged as a minor? Do I need a parent or guardian with me?

Typically, a minor needs a parent or guardian present for getting a lawyer involved. Most juvenile offenses occur in family court and create unique challenges that can result in serious life-long consequences. The potential for harsh consequences is why it is important to have a criminal defense attorney, as well as a parent or guardian, involved throughout the process.

Even though a juvenile’s case will most likely be handled in family court where their record is sealed, it is important to hire an experienced criminal defense lawyer to prevent collateral consequences that can arise out of a conviction in family court.

Do I need to pay the entire legal fee at one time?

No. Legal fees are determined on a case-by-case basis. However, it is common to be allowed to put down a substantial retainer and then pay the remaining balance on a month-to-month basis. Because the total cost of representation and the payment plan is fact-specific, we will need to conduct a consult to determine a client’s exact legal fee and payment structure.

Does the Shealey Law Firm only handle state level cases? Can the firm handle cases on the federal level?

The Shealey Law Firm is licensed to practice law in both SC state and federal courts. The Shealey Law Firm is able to take any case where there are charges on the state or federal level. Also, our team is licensed to practice in the United States Court of Appeals and Supreme Court.

Does every criminal case go to trial?

No. However, it is always a possibility. All of our clients have a right to trial and to a speedy trial. We always try to use our experience, knowledge of law, and knowledge of the local prosecutor’s office and law enforcement to avoid the risk of trial but at the same time preparing every element of a case in case we have to conduct a trial on our client’s behalf.
