Illegal Search And Seizure
You have constitutional rights that must be upheld and not trampled upon. Law enforcement officers and prosecutors are well aware of your rights, but that does not always stop them from disregarding your rights in pursuit of conviction.
If you have been arrested following a search of your vehicle, home or other personal property, you should immediately question whether this was a legal search. Unlawful vehicle search, home search and pat downs happen regularly. An experienced and skilled Georgia criminal defense lawyer can bring court motions to suppress illegal search and seizure, which may lead to a reduction or complete dismissal of the charges against you.
At Conaway & Strickler, P.C., we aggressively defend our clients who have been charged with drug crimes and other offenses under all circumstances. We have nearly 50 years of combined experience, and we are nationally renowned for our track record of success and knowledge in criminal defense cases.
Avoid speaking with law enforcement agents until you have retained a defense lawyer.
Defense Against Illegal Searches In Georgia
Law enforcement officers and officials must comply with your Fourth Amendment rights when conducting a search, and a judge will enforce your rights, but it takes a skilled attorney to illustrate that your rights were violated and how they were violated.
When we prove that our clients’ rights were violated or show that there is doubt as to whether the search and seizure conducted by law enforcement officers was legal, it results in evidence being suppressed or thrown out of court. If we can get this result in your case, the government will have less evidence to prove the charges brought against you. The jury will not see it and will not be able to consider it throughout trial.
This strategy can be one of the most effective defenses in your case if executed properly.
