When crafting a criminal defense, our law firm begins by gaining a clear understanding of the matter. Were you stopped by police because of a traffic violation? Were you stopped on the street? Or, did law enforcement conduct a search of your residence? By looking at this detail, we can begin to understand whether a legal stop occurred. Next, we look at the details of the conversations had, whether any warrants were issued and presented and, if a search was conducted, whether the search and seizure followed the terms of the warrant or was reasonable under the circumstances.
