Defending Seattle Clients Against Illegal Search and Seizure

Because this is America, you have certain rights guaranteed by the Constitution. No one may deprive you of life, liberty or property without due process. If you are arrested, you must be charged within a reasonable amount of time or set free.

Under the Fourth Amendment, people have the right to be secure in their homes and protected against unreasonable search and seizure. In order to arrest you or search your home or car, the police must have probable cause or reasonable suspicion that you committed a crime.

Sometimes the police get it wrong, and search or confiscate money without authority to do so. When that happens, call experienced search and seizure defense lawyer John Crowley in Seattle, Washington, at The Crowley Law Firm, PLLC at 206.388.2461. Or contact him by e-mail for a free initial consultation.

Mr. Crowley has 13 years of experience in criminal defense, with previous experience as a prosecutor and an attorney for the U.S. Department of Justice. That experience on both sides of the courtroom gives him an edge in building a strong defense the government finds it difficult to refute.

Protecting Clients Against Illegal Search and Seizure of Property

Mr. Crowley has a long record of success in search and seizure defense. In one previous successful case, his client was accused of sending large amounts of cash through the U.S. mails. The delivery was tracked to the post office, where the police began tailing him. When the client left his home in a hurry, the police gave chase, following him to his girlfriend's house, where he was subsequently apprehended. The police had the authority to arrest him, but not to search his car.

They pressured his client's girlfriend to give them a car to the key, which she refused on constitutional grounds. At the end of the day, the court agreed with Mr. Crowley that the police had no probable cause to pursue the search, and the evidence was excluded from consideration.

The goal at The Crowley Law Firm, PLLC is to vigorously protect the rights of every client charged with felony drug crimes, and provide aggressive defense to clients charged with high profile drug crimes or marijuana grow operations — no matter what.
