Your Rights in Criminal Cases

In the moments following an arrest, questions arise due to the uncertainty criminal suspects face. They want to know about not only the process, but also their rights. Protecting those rights starts with a phone call to the Law Office of Robert Elovitz.

Proactive Steps To Protect Your Rights Are Paramount

Prosecutors and police often want suspects to talk to them. They claim that they have their best interests in mind. Remaining silent is paramount as anything those detained say could undermine a criminal defense. Retaining an attorney early in the process can not only provide a spokesperson, but also an advocate who can negotiate a reasonable bail amount and subsequent release from custody.

Choosing the right attorney is an important first step. Throughout the entire course of any criminal case, whether it involves felony drug crimes, assault and battery or drunk driving, the objective is to minimize the consequences. Convictions for misdemeanors and felonies can result in prison sentences and criminal records impacting both personal lives and professional disputes.
