I have been called to appear for an investigative interview with an investigator at the Minnesota Attorney General’s office. Do I need a lawyer for that?
At Lord & Heinlein we highly recommend obtaining an attorney for any investigative interview in Minnesota. This interview has been requested by your professional licensing board in order to gather more information from you regarding the complaint they have received. It is wise to retain a professional license defense attorney who can speak with the investigator before the interview to find out more about what the interview will be about. Then, your attorney can help prepare you for the interview and accompany you at the interview. The interview will be recorded and will become a permanent part of the record regarding the investigation against your professional license. It is advisable to retain an attorney before giving any information to your licensing Board in Minnesota.
