Whether arrested for driving under the influence or are indicted in federal court, few of us are ever prepared for the anxiety and potentially serious repercussions that accompany criminal charges. Although many criminal offenses carry the very real potential for jail time, even less serious crimes can have long-lasting consequences such as the loss of a job or immigration problems and deportation. Additionally, you may face the possibility of having a life-long criminal record with a misdemeanor or felony offense, which you may be required to disclose whenever you apply for a new job. Even a simple decision to coach your child’s little league team can come to a halt if you have a criminal record. Don’t let an arrest prevent you from living the life you want to lead.
Fighting for Your Rights Every Step of the Way
As a person accused of a crime, you have certain rights guaranteed to you by the U.S. Constitution, including the right to be represented at every stage of a criminal proceeding. However, having those rights guaranteed and invoking them properly to protect yourself from criminal liability are two very different things.
The criminal defense lawyers at Ratzan & Faccidomo, LLC are with you every step of the way and pride themselves on putting a protective barrier between you and overly aggressive prosecutors and law enforcement. The lawyers at Ratzan & Faccidomo, LLC are skilled at assisting people who have not yet been arrested but are under investigation by the police. In these cases, we can step in and influence how an arrest is made, the types of charged filed, and in some cases we can prevent charges from ever being filed at all.
It is all too common for people who have done nothing wrong or who believe they can “talk their way out of something” to engage law enforcement, believing they can convince them not to go forward with an arrest. The unfortunate reality is that, by the time you have been approached, most agent or detectives have made up their minds that you have done something wrong, and they will manipulate anything you say to fit one of their theories of the case. Even the most innocuous statement can be reworded by law enforcement as a means of creating probable cause and allowing them to place you under arrest.
