Bill Deely, Criminal Defense Lawyer

In today’s video, Attorney Ben Schwartz interviews Criminal Defense Lawyer Bill Deely with the Law Firm of Schwartz and Schwartz. Bill gives the viewers some tips of what to do if they have been asked to come in for questioning or interrogation in a prospective criminal case.

Hi, I’m attorney Ben Schwartz,

Today I’m interviewing attorney Bill Deely. We are both with the Law Firm of Schwartz and Schwartz. Bill, can you take a moment to introduce yourself and talk about your background as a criminal defense lawyer?

Bill: As Ben said, my name is Bill Deely, I didn’t go to law school until I was older, I went to law school when I was fifty (50) years old. I intended to be a prosecutor when I went to law school. During my first year in law school, I worked at the US Attorney’s office in Philadelphia and quite frankly I was overwhelmed by the arrogance of power they displayed. I enjoyed criminal law, so I thought I would try criminal defense work. If I liked it, I would stay with it. If I did not like it, I would go back to business. I went to work as an intern at the public defender’s office in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and that’s what I’ve done ever since. I’ve been a criminal defense lawyer since that time.

Ben: Before joining Schwartz and Schwartz, what did you do?

Bill: After I worked approximately 2 to 2 1/2 years in Philadelphia, I moved to Delaware. I worked for a couple of years as a public defender in Delaware and then I was moved to Kent County and for the last 15 years or so I’ve been supervising the Kent County Public Defender’s office until January of this year. Then I moved to Schwartz and Schwartz.

Ben: Do you know who many cases you have tried?

Bill: God it would be in the hundreds. I couldn’t give you an exact number; probably a couple of hundred cases.

Ben: What are your favorite types of cases to try? I guess I should ask, do you have a favorite type of case to try?

Bill: I really don’t.  One of the things about being a criminal defense attorney is that you get to learn a lot of different things. Whether it is forensics, gunshot residue, fingerprints,  DNA samples & medical work in personal injury cases where an alleged victim has been injured. It really covers the entire spectrum, you learn a little bit about everything.

Ben: Do you feel that you are passionate about handling criminal cases?

Bill: Absolutely, I think anybody that knows me would call me passionate about my job.

Ben: Do you have any tips for folks out there who may be watching this on the internet? Do you have any tips for what to do if they have been arrested or if they have been asked to come in for questioning or interrogation in a prospective criminal case?

Bill:  If you are asked to come into the police station, you see on TV and newscasts, where they talk about a person has lawyered-up and they can’t expect people to talk when they have lawyered-up. The best advice I can give you is getting a lawyer. Do not talk to the police. They will act like they are your friends. The police will attempt to get you to talk about whatever the issue is. They may tell you that is the way you are going to get to go home. The police are allowed to lieYou are not [allowed to lie]. Your lawyer is not, so don’t talk to the police. Ask for an attorney. Your rights are you can have an attorney present during any questioning, whether you are arrested or not arrested.  If you’re under suspicion, ask for an attorney.

Ben: Thanks Bill,  I appreciate you taking the time to answer some questions today. I’m Attorney Ben Schwartz, my guest is Attorney Bill Deely. We are with the Law Firm of Schwartz & Schwartz with offices in Wilmington, Delaware and Dover, Delaware. We offer free consultations in criminal defense cases in the state of Delaware.
