Protecting Your Constitutional Rights
More often than not, the police arrest people for various drug offenses in violation of an individual’s Constitutional right against unreasonable search and seizure, or without sufficient evidence for conviction. Our criminal defense law firm will begin your defense by conducting its own investigation into the facts, witnesses, and other evidence. We will ask necessary questions, such as:
- Was there probable cause for the traffic stop that led to your arrest?
- Was there probable cause to search of your vehicle, person or home?
- When the police stopped you for questioning, did they have a reasonable, articulable suspicion that a crime either occurred or was about to occur?
- When you were frisked, did the officer who patted you down have reason to believe his safety was in jeopardy or that you possessed a weapon?
- Were the seized drugs actually in your physical or constructive possession?
- Did the police properly advise you of your Miranda rights once you were taken into custody?
Answers to these questions may lead to dismissal of your charges, an amendment of the original charges to those of a lesser degree, and/or obtaining a not-guilty verdict at trial.
