Protecting your constitutional rights to due process
The United States Constitution and related case law have established safeguards for accused persons. Your rights include:
- The right to be free from illegal searches and seizures of property
- The right to remain silent so as not to incriminate yourself
- The right to have an attorney assist you even if you cannot afford one
- The right to be free from coercion, intimidation or physical harm during questioning
- The right to be charged or released
- The right to confront your accusers and to see the evidence being used against you
Accused persons who do not understand their rights often say or do things to make their situation worse. All criminal defense attorneys agree that if you are arrested, you should immediately demand a lawyer —and you should refuse to answer questions until your lawyer arrives.
Challenging the evidence against you to deliver your best possible results
Attorney Lake is an experienced criminal defense lawyer who challenges every aspect of the prosecution’s case against you. This includes interviewing witnesses and law enforcement personnel, as well as reviewing the procedures used to gather, process and store physical evidence. Even when the facts are against you, Attorney Lake works hard to limit the damage of your arrest by negotiating plea agreements that carry less severe penalties.
