I was involved in a fight. Vermont law enforcement has called me and asked me to come down to the station to tell my side. Should I go?

No. Voluntary statements made to the police can still be used against you in the future. Even what seems like an innocent way of explaining what happened during the fight could result in you being charged with assault, domestic assault, aggravated assault, or disorderly conduct in Vermont. Always contact an attorney before you speak to law enforcement. At Burke Law we cover the entire state of Vermont from two office locations (Burlington and White River Junction) and have an on-call system. Contact Burke Law any time and we will help you devise a plan to protect your rights and your interests.
