Quick action is essential when you or someone you love is charged with drug offense. The preservation of key evidence, such as police radio logs, videotapes and witness statements can greatly affect the outcome of your case. Our law office dissects each case looking for improper police procedure and violations of protocol that can often result in incriminating evidence being thrown out and charges against our clients dismissed.
Even if you think the evidence is overwhelming, if the search, arrest, and/or interrogation was not done according to the law, all of the evidence derived from the police’s illegal actions could be ordered tossed out resulting in what’s been generally termed “ getting off on a technicality.”
