California Three Strikes Law
Legal Rights of Individuals Facing Criminal Charges
The Constitution is your protection, whether you are a citizen or not.  You have many rights that the police do not always respect.  We can destroy the prosecution’s case when we have the right facts about this!

Miranda Rights and the Right to Remain Silent

“They never read me my rights!” - many clients

Your Miranda rights are fundamental in a criminal case. You do not have to say anything that may incriminate you. Our lawyers ensure law enforcement respects these rights during your arrest and questioning.

The right to remain silent is a crucial defense tool. We advise you on when and how to exercise this right. Our team ensures that any statements you make are voluntary and informed. We protect you from self-incrimination and use your Miranda rights to strengthen your defense.

The Right to be Free From Search and Seizure without A Warrant or Probable Cause

Your right to not be searched, your body, your car or your home, is often a serious issue in criminal arrests.  The police are master manipulators and use every trick to convince you to give up this right in order to find evidence against you.

Our criminal defense team analyzes your case for possible illegal search and seizure which is the surest way to get a case dismissed.

Right to Legal Representation

You have the right to legal representation. This is one of the most essential rights in a criminal case. Our lawyers are here to represent you and defend your rights. We provide expert legal counsel from the moment you are charged. We guide you through the legal process, ensuring that your rights are protected at every step. Our lawyers advocate for you, both in and out of the courtroom. We are committed to providing the best possible defense.

When you are interrogated, questioned or otherwise encouraged to talk to the police or in a jail cell to an undercover officer or witness, challenges to the use of that information can be made on the grounds you were not given a lawyer at the right time.

Presumption of Innocence

You are presumed innocent until proven guilty. This principle guides our defense strategy. We remind the court that the burden of proof lies with the prosecution. Our team works tirelessly to maintain your presumption of innocence throughout your trial.

Challenging the prosecution's evidence is critical to upholding your innocence. We scrutinize their case for weaknesses and inconsistencies. Our lawyers argue that you cannot be found guilty without PROOF BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT. We defend your innocence vigorously, aiming for an acquittal or a favorable verdict.
