Illegal Search And Seizure

One detail in particular that we will look at is the issue of search and seizure. Did police have probable cause to conduct a search? Was there a warrant? Was the warrant executed correctly? Were your constitutional rights violated? All too often, we find that corners were cut. When we find this, we may be able to have evidence thrown out. This may lead to your entire case being dismissed. One of the many benefits of enlisting a law firm with lawyers who have more than 40 years of combined experience is that we know exactly where to look for police errors.
