When you were arrested, were you told you have the right to remain silent? Did you give up that right? If so, any statements you made to the police, probation officers, judges, district attorneys or counselors can be used against you later.
Our lawyers can help protect your rights from the moment you contact us. We can discuss your situation before you are taken to the station. We can help protect you against yourself.
We can also help you during your drug court process. Statements you make to a counselor can affect your long-term record. If you admit to a drug counselor that you have used a drug, it can be put on your record. It is important to note: once you admit to using drugs or confess, you make it harder on yourself to get a plea deal. We can help determine what to say and if you'll say anything to drug counselors.Protecting You Against Evidence
Our New York City attorneys investigate every detail about your arrest and charges. We can discover whether the search and seizure was legal — - the police had enough cause to even stop you. We look for weaknesses in the prosecutor's case to try to have evidence suppressed.
If we can show that evidence could be suppressed or your case is weak, we have more power to negotiate. We can discuss a plea disposition with the prosecutor to try to get your charges dismissed. We can protect you against evidence.Contact The Criminal Defense Law Firm of John J. Carney for a Free Consultation
