Criminal Defense

Our Constitution, particularly the Bill of Rights, provides certain rights against criminal prosecution. During an investigation these include the right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures, the right against self-incrimination, and the right to speak with an attorney. At trial are two fundamental aspects of the U.S. criminal justice system: the presumption that the defendant is innocent and the burden on the prosecution to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

But criminal defendants have other rights, too, including the rights to:

  • Remain silent
  • Confront witnesses
  • Have a public trial
  • Have a jury trial
  • Have a speedy trial
  • Be represented by an attorney
  • Receive adequate representation
  • Not be tried twice for the same offense – double jeopardy
