Exercising your rights to remain silent and to representation are key to defending criminal and traffic charges that you may face, such as DUI, domestic battery, drug charges and retail theft. Although law enforcement officers are required to read you Miranda warnings, the amount of stress you may be under can affect your ability to understand and process these important constitutional rights. Be cautious when encountering a friendly police officer who tries to convince you that you do not need a criminal defense attorney or that providing an explanation will lead to reduced charges or no charges at all. Your best interest is not a police officer’s priority. Instead, police officers are trained to collect evidence to secure a solid case against you. Remember, “anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.” You need an experienced criminal attorney to guide you through this difficult time, provide you with the best defense possible and minimize the negative consequences criminal and traffic charges can have on many aspects of your life.
