Why You Need an Experienced Defense Lawyer
Being charged with a crime puts your freedom and future on the line. Fortunately,
our criminal justice system provides you with certain rights that can
be used to your benefit. As experienced attorneys, we understand your
rights and can explain clearly how they can be leveraged to protect you
in order to reach a favorable outcome. Some of these rights include:
Your Right to Remain Silent – The Fifth Amendment to the US Constitution protects you against
self-incrimination. This means you have the right to remain silent, which
is crucial in criminal proceedings. If you are stopped under suspicion
for a crime, being investigated, or interacting with law enforcement for
any reason, you do not have to speak. In fact, anyone who may be potentially
involved in a criminal matter should
never speak to the police. Instead, contact an attorney immediately so they can communicate on your
behalf and explain what you do and do not have to say.
Your Right Against Search and Seizure – The Fourth Amendment protects personal privacy, which means the
government cannot stop, search, or arrest you without reason. If law enforcement
officers infringe upon this right, everything that follows can be considered
tainted and can be thrown out as evidence against you. Seasoned defense
lawyers know how to explore the circumstances surrounding stops and arrests
to determine if they were conducted properly. Often when they are not,
charges and cases can be dismissed.
Your Right to An Attorney – Perhaps your greatest right when it comes to the criminal justice
system is your right to legal representation. Ultimately, you have the
right to challenge the government’s case against you. By working
with an experienced attorney, you can accumulate the evidence and arguments
needed to effectively challenge the prosecution’s version of facts,
and pursue a positive outcome.
