Protect Your Legal Rights
A Raiser & Kenniff criminal defense lawyer will aggressively protect your constitutional rights and defend you against all criminal charges. The actions of the police and the evidence that will be used in court must be thoroughly investigated and challenged whenever possible. Depending on the severity of the charges against you and your previous criminal background, it may be possible to negotiate a significant reduction in charges or have the case dismissed altogether. It makes all the difference in the world when you have a criminal defense attorney at your side that has seen it all before.
Establishing a confidential relationship with your personal criminal defense attorney is the foundation of a successful defense strategy. You may be certain that the prosecution will leave nothing to chance, so it’s vital that you confide every detail of the events that resulted in criminal charges being filed. Only then will your attorney be in a position to develop an effective defense to protect your legal rights.
It’s always worth emphasizing that the prosecution bears the ultimate burden of establishing your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. When you have a couple of former prosecutors on your team, you can be confident that they have a pretty good idea of how to take advantage of this high legal standard by identifying every weakness in the government’s case against you.
Constitutionally Guaranteed Rights
Even if you’re completely unaware of your legal rights as prescribed by the United States Constitution, your defense attorney will ensure that your personal liberties are preserved during every phase of the legal process. The 4th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, for example, guards against the illegal seizure of evidence. The 5th Amendment guarantees your right to a fair trial and protects your right to withhold incriminating evidence from the government. The 6th Amendment guarantees your right to a speedy trial and a jury trial.
Your constitutional rights under federal and state law are quite extensive. You have the right to reasonable bail, humane treatment and access to the evidence that will be used to obtain a conviction in a court of law. Don’t let the criminal bureaucracy get you down.
