Does "police questioning" require an attorney?

Police questioning can occurr throughout an investigation. It is almost always preferable to have an attorney present before answering any questions or making a statement if you are a suspect or were involved in the commission of a crime. You have the right to remain silent, saying you want an attorney should terminate questioning and cannot be held against you.  If you are simply a witness and will not be incriminating yourself, then you may not need an attorney, but every case is different.  Many people think they can "talk" their way out of an arrest, but unfortunately that does not occurr.  Even worse, people incriminate themselves, give information that will incriminate them or ruin their future credibility as a witness by not being completely honest.
