To us, there is no greater reward than seeing our clients walk away from a criminal arrest or charge knowing that their rights and their freedom have been protected to the absolute fullest extent. We have handled cases involving nearly every type of criminal allegation.
We know how devastating an arrest can be. Not only can an arrest impact the individual who has been accused of a crime, but the ripple effect of the arrest can also be experienced by family members, close friends, colleagues, or professional contacts.
Anyone who has been arrested knows how terrifying the experience can be; in the matter of minutes, your life can change. Suddenly, you are confronted with thoughts of how this specific moment of your life could potentially disrupt your entire future. If you have been arrested or if you fear an impending investigation, it is important to remember that you have rights that you can exercise.
Once an arrest is made, a law enforcement officer will likely inform you of your constitutional rights, also known as Miranda rights, which include:
It is important to remember that once you have been arrested, you must state that you are invoking your right to remain silent. Staying quiet or refusing to answer any question posed by an arresting officer may be used as evidence against you or perceived as an admittance of guilt. If you are placed under arrest and are not read your rights, we can determine whether an officer violated your rights, violated search and seizure laws, or whether your arrest was conducted unlawfully.
Perhaps the most important action that you can take after an arrest is to ask for help. You have rights that deserve to be protected, and our firm may be able to help you. Our clients are always considered innocent until proven guilty. We know how unforgiving the criminal justice system can seem, and it is has been our personal mission to help our clients through the toughest times of their lives.

Kovacs, Jr. as soon as possible and retain aggressive legal defense.
