Kay, we can provide you with the representation that you need. It is important to understand that as a U.S. citizen, you have various rights to how you may be treated by law enforcement and throughout the judicial process. If you have been arrested, then you need to understand the applicable rights for such a situation:
Protection Against Unlawful Search and Seizure
You have the right to due process of the law. This includes protection from unlawful search and seizure of your private property and person. A police officer must either obtain your permission or a warrant to search your home, your vehicle, or other property.
Right to Remain Silent
According to the Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution, you have the right to remain silent. It is important that you utilize this right in order to prepare as much as possible for your case because anything you say can later be used against you in court.
