Expertise Born from Experience
Our unique edge stems from our team’s background as former criminal prosecutors and government law enforcement agents. This experience equips us with a profound understanding of the criminal justice system, enabling us to anticipate prosecution tactics and build a robust defense strategy.
Criminal law is complex and ever-evolving. Our attorneys are not just knowledgeable; they are continually updating their expertise to provide you with the most current and effective defense. We believe in a tailored approach, recognizing that each case has its unique intricacies.
Protecting Your Rights, Protecting Your Future
A criminal conviction can have long-lasting repercussions on your life, including your career, reputation, and personal freedom. Our role is to navigate these treacherous waters with you, ensuring that your rights are protected at every turn. We aim to minimize the impact of criminal charges on your life, whether it’s through dismissal, reduced charges, or acquittal.
One of the most critical pieces of advice we offer at Foley & Wilson Law Firm is the importance of exercising your right to remain silent. This right is fundamental in protecting yourself in the criminal justice system. Speaking to the police or others without legal counsel can inadvertently lead to self-incrimination. Even seemingly harmless statements can be misconstrued and used against you in court. It’s crucial to consult with your attorney before making any statements. Our attorneys will be your voice, ensuring that your statements are presented accurately and strategically. This approach is vital in maintaining the integrity of your defense.
Understanding Your Constitutional Rights
As a person accused of a crime, the U.S. Constitution affords you certain rights that are key to receiving fair treatment. The judicial system is not out to protect you, however, and many important rights can be lost if you don’t know how to secure them and exercise them. At Foley & Wilson Law Firm, we ensure that your rights are upheld and respected. Some of the most important rights you have as a person accused of a crime include:
Right to Due Process
The Fifth Amendment guarantees your right to due process, ensuring fair treatment through the judicial system. This includes the right to be informed of the charges against you and the right to a fair trial.
Right to an Attorney
The Sixth Amendment provides the right to legal representation. This right is pivotal in ensuring that you have a knowledgeable and effective defense against criminal charges.
Protection Against Unreasonable Searches and Seizures
The Fourth Amendment protects you from unreasonable searches and seizures. Any evidence obtained in violation of this right can be contested and potentially excluded from your case.
Presumption of Innocence
Innocent until proven guilty – this principle is the cornerstone of American criminal justice. Our defense strategies are grounded in this presumption, ensuring that every effort is made to maintain your innocence. We’ll make the judge and jury understand the weaknesses in the prosecution’s case and raise all viable defenses to demonstrate why you shouldn’t be convicted of the charges against you. Where a guilty plea is in your best interest, we’ll be sure to negotiate the most favorable outcome, such as probation instead of jail time, or a reduction in charges to protect your criminal record.
