A Strong defense with Insight

Many people mistakenly believe that the police have to read someone their rights before interviewing them. Many also believe that the police have to have a search warrant to conduct a search. Unfortunately, neither are true.

Experienced police officers will avoid creating a situation that requires them to read Miranda rights to the person they're speaking with. They will obtain consent to search through questions and statements that make people feel it's easier to waive their right to refuse a search. They may say something like, "ff there's nothing to hide, you wouldn't mind letting me check your bag."

By telling the police you want to speak with an attorney as soon as you're contacted, you buy yourself time and protection from being persuaded to do things that can harm your case in the long run.

Many individuals are falsely accused of crimes, and when those crimes are sexual in nature or involve child abuse, such accusations can have lasting effects. Even a pending case can result in job loss, public embarrassment, and can fracture family relationships. There are many ways to protect your rights and defend against criminal accusations — and that's where I aim to help.
