Fight Your Charges and Assert Your Rights
We have experience handling a wide variety of criminal matters, including drug offenses, assault, theft, weapons crimes, domestic violence, and juvenile offenses. If you are facing charges, it is important to remember that the prosecution must prove every element of the alleged offense beyond a reasonable doubt. Most crimes consist of certain elements related to the acts that the defendant allegedly committed and other elements related to the mental state that the defendant supposedly had at the time. A skilled criminal defense attorney may be able to create doubt in the minds of a judge or jury regarding one or more of these elements, such as by challenging the credibility of the prosecution’s witnesses, or the manner in which law enforcement obtained its evidence.
For example, police generally must have a warrant before they search an individual’s residence, unless certain exceptions apply. This requirement, which originates in the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, is not always heeded, and law enforcement may seize items without a warrant or with a warrant that lacks the required probable cause. If this happens, a defense lawyer can ask the court to exclude from consideration the evidence that was improperly seized. In many situations, such as drug cases, the prosecution’s case relies heavily on certain tangible items. The charges may be reduced or even dismissed if it cannot introduce them as evidence.
If you are involved in a situation that could potentially result in prosecution, it is important to know your rights and use them. The right to remain silent and your right to an attorney are some of the most important rights to assert when you are facing potential criminal liability. They must be actively asserted by a defendant, or they may be deemed to be waived. If you assert your right to an attorney, the police cannot continue to question you until your lawyer is present. Any violation of this constitutional right may lead to information obtained during that time being suppressed so that it cannot be used against you by the prosecution.
