    Our attorneys are well aware of your constitutional rights and protections. We are especially knowledgeable regarding your Fourth Amendment protection of the United States Constitution against unreasonable search and seizures by the Government, your Fifth Amendment protection of the United States Constitution to remain silent, and most importantly, your Sixth Amendment Protection of the United States Constitution to an attorney. If the Government’s conduct violates you or your loved one’s constitutional rights, the evidence obtained may be deemed inadmissible and your case dismissed. Our experienced attorneys are able to identify these issues and file the proper motions with the Court and perhaps eliminate the need for a trial and have the case dismissed in its entirety.
