Understanding Your Legal Rights

When arrested and charged with a serious crime, it is crucial that you know your rights.

Even if you are only under investigation for a serious crime, protecting yourself is an urgent matter; when under investigation you can expect that you will be arrested within a short period of time. Answering questions by law enforcement is dangerous.

The Right to Remain Silent

There are countless cases in which individuals severely damaged their own defense case by making statements to police. When the law specifically provides you with the "right to remain silent" it is critical that you do so. Even discussing your case with a friend, family member or any other person can result in severe damage to the upcoming defense of your case. In many cases, these phone conversations are recorded and you may find yourself in even more legal difficulty if you do so. It is critical that you protect your rights and remain silent.

A Long Beach criminal defense lawyer from our legal team will fight for your rights from the moment you are arrested.

  • Do not make any statements to law enforcement
  • Do not discuss your case with anyone
  • Do not trust that you are being told the truth
  • Do not answer any questions without an attorney present
  • Hire a qualified criminal defense lawyer

You Have the Right to Have Legal Representation

Who you select to protect you is an important choice. It has been proven thoroughly that the defense attorney that supports you has much to do with the outcome of the trial. Not all attorneys have the talent in the courtroom that can lead to a favorable outcome. West Coast Defense has outstanding courtroom experience and abilities and can present your case to the jury in a compelling and aggressive manner.

Don't Assume Law Enforcement Plays by the Rules

There are often cases in which the rights of the accused have been severely violated when overzealous law enforcement does not follow the correct and legal procedure, often failing to adhere to the constitution in search and seizure. When such violations of your rights are discovered, you can be certain that the legal team will fully address the matter in court. In other cases, the client suffered from excessive force and was treated outrageously by law enforcement. These cases must be fully exposed in court and law enforcement attacked for their violations of your rights. No matter how serious you may consider your case, we can provide you with the powerful defense that is needed when facing the criminal justice system in the courts of Los Angeles County, Orange County and throughout Southern California.
