Protecting Your Fourth Amendment Constitutional Rights

If you have been arrested for or are under investigation for a criminal offense, it does not necessarily mean you will be convicted. Law enforcement must follow strict Fourth Amendment restrictions against unreasonable warrantless searches and seizures. If they do not, then the evidence is inadmissible.

The police often go beyond the legal boundaries of where they can search for drugs or contraband. You have privacy rights that the police cannot violate. If the evidence is inadmissible, then your case should be dismissed.

No matter how serious the charges or how strong the evidence, you should never give up hope. We can help you.

We know how to assert your Constitutional rights!

In every case, the Fourth Amendment gives citizens protection against unreasonable searches and seizures. The founders of our country were tired of the militia stopping them at a whim and searching them and invading their houses. So, they put an end to that in the U.S. Constitution, which is still in full effect.

The Constitution guarantees that you have an expectation of privacy. It greatly restricts the ability of the police to search your home, car, apartment, dorm room or property without a warrant. The Fourth Amendment even protects you when you are on public property.
