What To Know About Criminal Charges
Prospective clients often come to us with many questions about the criminal justice system. Here, we have answered a few of the most common inquiries we hear.
What should I do if I am arrested?
Remain calm and respectful. Give the arresting officer your name and any information on your driver’s license, but then immediately request a lawyer and invoke your Fifth Amendment right to remain silent.
I think the police illegally searched my property. What should I do?
Under the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution, law enforcement officers cannot search your property unless they have probable cause, a search warrant or your permission. If you believe that the search you underwent was unlawful, contact an attorney immediately.
Do I really need a lawyer?
Yes. A defense attorney can make sure that the state does not disregard your rights.
