Your Legal Rights

Being arrested requires you to be taken to a judge, at which time the judge must advise you of any accusations against you, any affidavits filed regarding the accusations, your right to retain legal counsel, your right to remain silent, your right to have an lawyer present during any interviews, your right to terminate any interviews at any time, your right to request a court-appointed lawyer, your right to have a fair trial, and your right not to make a statement that may be used against you. It is also your right to have a reasonable amount of time to find an attorney.

As the accused, you also have the right not to be prosecuted unless indicted by a grand jury when facing a felony, the right to be presumed innocent until guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, the right not to incriminate yourself, the right to a speedy trial, the right to confront any witnesses against you, and the right to appeal.

  • We comb through state’s file, thoroughly examine the alleged evidence against you, and expose the human errors made by police and investigators.
  • We combine a passion for criminal defense law with meticulous attention to detail.

  • We know what to do and say to maximize the chances of achieving a dismissal.

Criminal Defense Advice from a Former Judge Turned Lawyer

The burden of proof rests on the prosecution in matters of criminal charges. “The people” must prove that the defendant — beyond any reasonable doubt — committed the alleged crimes. A good defense attorney understands how to make that process even more challenging. Our law firm works with the evidence in our clients’ cases to separate proof from conjecture. 

Our defenses pose definitive questions that help our clients defend their charges:

  • Was there, in fact, a crime committed?
  • Is there evidence our client was involved?
  • Is the evidence based in fact?
  • Are the witnesses credible?
  • Can our client be legally punished for this crime?
  • Are there any other logical explanations?
  • Did the police follow standard procedure?
  • Was the evidence legally obtained?
  • Are there any other suspects?
