The performance of illegal search and seizure – a search without a warrant – is an extreme infringement of an individual’s privacy. Under the United States Constitution, searches must be conducted by means of a warrant. The petition for a warrant must be made with specific details about to the location, intended purpose and probable cause. Call us to determine if the law was followed in your case.

Our illegal search and seizure defense team will meticulously review what happened:

  • The documentation, language and reasoning that law enforcement officials used to obtain the warrant.
  • The police records associated with your arrest and the charges being leveled against you in association with the evidence obtained.
  • The police records associated with the delivery and fulfillment of the warrant including the inventory of the evidence that was produced by their efforts.

If you feel your 4th Amendment protection against illegal search and seizure has been violated, you must speak up. Talk to one of our legal representatives and let the truth come to the light. Contact our firm today. If it can be determined that authorities did breach the federal guidelines, any evidence obtained can be prohibited from admission in court.

Illegal search and seizure is a tyrannical practice that can lead to unfortunate outcomes for defendants who are unaware of their rights to refuse unwarranted searches. And the police are under no obligation to advise the targeted individuals of their investigations that they have the right to refuse such an imposition. Call us if you, your home, papers, property and your person have been subjected to an unsuspected, sudden, violent and unlawful assault.

There are times, even if there was a warrant, when a search can be brought into question. Vague reasoning, misstatements of facts and immaterial speculations can render a warrant illegitimate along with any of the evidence obtained. Call us to review the warrant you were given.

You want your case reviewed by an attorney because there are certain circumstances in which there is no need to request a formal warrant from the courts in order to conduct a search:

  • The search is performed in accordance with the procedures of an arrest or due to an evidential and logical suspicion that a crime is about to be committed;
  • The evidence that would incite or lead to an arrest is not hidden and displayed “in plain view,” and;
  • When the evidence of the crime would be destroyed or compromised without immediate action.
  • An attorney from our firm can review the circumstances of your illegal search and seizure and determine whether or not it was permissible in accordance with the exclusionary rule of good-faith exception.
