Search warrants and methods might provide points for your defense

A defendant who is facing drug charges or any other criminal charges must take the time to explore all possible defense options. In the case of criminal charges that result from a search or seizure, scrutinizing the circumstances of the search and seizure might open up a defense option. As we discussed in our previous blog, your reasonable expectation of privacy is a factor if the police search you or seize items from you. There are other factors to consider, as well.

When we look into your case, we explore all the possible defense options that you have. This includes looking into how the search was conducted. For example, if there was a search warrant issued and executed, it must be executed according to the points in the warrant. This can include specific areas to search and specific items to look for during the search. While there are some instances in which some deviation from the search warrant is allowed, examining the deviations closely might provide a point to use in your defense.

Once we have determined the defense options, we work with you to build your case. We don't underestimate the seriousness of the charges placed against you or the penalties you might face. Whether you are facing a misdemeanor or a felony and whether your charges are state charges or federal charges, we work vigorously to call the prosecution's claims into question.

As soon as you learn that you are facing drug charges, you must get to work on your defense. The longer you wait, the less time you have to build your defense. Don't delay, get started today.
