If I invoke my rights and demand a lawyer, can law enforcement still talk to me?

If you invoke your rights and demand a lawyer, law enforcement should not legally question you further regarding your case. Not surprisingly, law enforcement agents often disregard the law and get another officer or police agent to try to question you about your case again. Sometimes they will also ask you questions about other cases or other incidents as well. If you repeat to them that you want to invoke your right to remain silent and right to an attorney and say nothing else to them in response to their questions and statements, they should eventually follow the law and stop talking to you.
