The Right to an Attorney

If you have been accused of a crime, these are the most important words you may ever hear, “you have the right to an attorney”

The sixth Amendment to our constitution provides, In all criminal prosecutions the accused shall enjoy the assistance of counsel for his [her] defense.  Our law also provides, any person detained by, or in the custody of, law enforcement shall have the right to remain silent and have an attorney present during questioning.

At SLF, the most frequent questions our criminal defense attorneys are asked begin with the word “should”;

Should I cooperate with law enforcement?

Should I consent to a search?

Should I believe what officers’ promise me?

Should I negotiate with prosecutors? 

Should I request a jury trial?
Every situation is unique and only a qualified criminal defense attorney can properly answer these questions. We can answer these questions for you.  

With over 20 years of trial experience, SLF has the necessary skills, knowledge, resources, and support staff to protect you and your family.
