Arrested? Suspected? Questioned? Know Your Rights
Regardless of whether you have been accused of a crime or arrested for one, you have rights and it is important that you not only know them but fully understand them. Neither an accusation nor an arrest is a conviction. Even after you are arrested you presumed to be innocent of the charges that the State has alleged you committed unless you are proven guilty beyond and to the exclusion of every reasonable doubt. We understand that being arrested is a stressful and frightening time, which is why it is important to have an attorney by your side who is knowledgeable and who is ready to defend you.
