Explain Your Rights

You might be unaware of your rights as the accused. Other parties are trying to collect as much evidence against you to obtain a guilty verdict. Not knowing your rights could make matters worse.

In any criminal matter, you always have the right to:

  • Remain silent
  • Contact an attorney
  • A trial by a jury or judge
  • Testify and present evidence on your behalf
  • Confront your accuser and cross-examine witnesses
  • Be proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt

Answer your Questions

Will I Go to Jail?
Just because you’re charged with a crime doesn’t mean you’re convicted. Your initial arrest might require you to spend some time in custody. However, everyone has the chance to go through the criminal justice process, and your sentence begins only if you plead guilty.

Should I Accept a Plea?
Prosecutors almost always resolve matters with plea agreements based on the available evidence. However, every case is different, and an acceptable plea deal for one person is unacceptable to another. You should weigh the pros and cons of this decision.

Should I Consent to a Search?
Police might want to search your home or vehicle. However, they must have a valid search warrant to do so. In most cases, police officers don’t have enough justification to search your property. It’s best to ask the officer to wait while you contact a criminal lawyer.

What Our Clients Say:

“There are hundreds of attorneys to pick through, but if you are looking for someone that will go beyond the call of duty, I highly recommend these guys. I’ve had the pleasure of having all three partners of this firm stand up for me. They will always have your best interests in mind, they will go the distance, and they seem to always have an ace up their sleeve. I most recently had Samir Sarna represent me on a case that was an uphill battle. He stunned all parties involved with his presentation of the case, and offered a compelling argument strong enough to keep me.out of an orange suit. I was told that it was the 1st interstate-compact case the D.A has lost in a long time. He and his team are thorough, calculated, experienced, and they arent happy until you are. If you are looking for an attorney, quit looking, these are the guys that nobody wants to argue with. This team is a winning one.” -Matt W. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
