The legal requirements of search and seizure are some of the most important aspects of any drug charge case. As your criminal defense lawyer, I will thoroughly and carefully investigate the steps that were taken to determine whether or not your constitutional rights were violated at any point in the legal process.
Protecting Your Rights From Violation By Law Enforcement
All too often, police and law enforcement conduct unlawful searches and seizures in their quest to catch people for illegal activity. When they have ignored the constitutional search and seizure law, it usually means that all charges dependent on the seized evidence lose their validity. In other words, violation of your rights by law enforcement can lead to your case being dismissed.
Law enforcement officers must follow very specific search and seizure rules in drug crime cases, such as drug possession or intent to distribute drugs. These rules ensure that your rights under the Constitution are protected. As your attorney, I will investigate your case to determine whether or not proper procedures were followed.
Conducting My Own Detailed Investigation
Some of the questions I will ask to determine the legality of the search and seizure that resulted in your drug crime charge include:
- Did you consent to the search?
- Was your consent voluntary?
- What were the circumstances of the search and seizure?
- Did the officers have probable cause?
- What did they search? Was it your house? Was it your car?
- Did they search further than your consent allowed?
Since I started my legal career in 1980, I have built a reputation for success by thoroughly addressing search and seizure issues. As your case progresses, I will keep you involved in the process and provide you with information about each step. I will advise you and help you make the important decisions throughout your case.
