We want to help you be prepared and understand your rights if you have a run-in with the law. We inform our clients of what officers can and cannot legally do, and we stand beside you. By knowing the law, you can help see to it that the arresting officer remains within the established legal boundaries.
What should I know?
Officers must have probable cause to pull you over, such as suspicious behavior, erratic driving, or a clear violation of the law. Roadblocks can be established so that officers can check compliance with seat belt laws or search for a criminal. Officers are not allowed to pull you over for no reason. If you are pulled over, comply with the officer and remember the reasons given for your detainment.
Officers must have probable cause to search your car, such as smelling drugs or alcohol, or seeing open beer bottles, firearms, or drug paraphernalia in plain view. If officers have a search warrant, they can search your house, but must stay within the limits set by the warrant. If you consent to have your home searched without a warrant, anything they find can be used against you in court.
When officers ask to speak with you, you are under no obligation to answer questions. If they handcuff you and ask questions, you can ask if you are under arrest; if not, you can then ask to be let go. If you are under arrest, your rights must be read to you and anything you say afterwards can be used against you.
Legal Representation You Can Trust
In any situation where you are questioned, searched, or arrested by a law enforcement officer, it is important to contact our lawyers immediately to help protect your rights. You should comply with the officer's instructions and cooperate with them. Aggressive, informative, and thorough, we can challenge the charges against you and work to convince the jury to reach a positive conclusion to your case.
