The Importance of 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 and to reach a favorable outcome. For example, 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.
