Client Rights

Right to an Attorney:

If you are questioned by the police or any law enforcement agency within the United States, ALWAYS demand your right to legal representation by simply asserting, “I WANT TO TALK TO AN ATTORNEY!” This simple statement can protect you from police interrogations and questioning sessions in which you might unintentionally implicate yourself in a criminal act or conspiracy.

Right to cross examine and confront witnesses:

You have the right in this country to confront your accusers and cross exam the truth of their statements.

Right to testify on one's own behalf:

You have the right to testify or not to testify on your own behalf!

Right to remain silent:

You have the right to remain silent or to talk with any law enforcement agency or agent that you wish. However, before deciding to speak with one of these agents you should always seek out the guidance and professional experience of a qualified criminal attorney.

Right to speedy trial:

You have the right to a speedy trial. Right to use courts subpoena power to compel witnesses to testify: You have the right to subpoena (or compel, command, direct) a witness to testify before the court, or produce any information such as papers, books, ext. that will support your case.

Right to a jury trial (in most cases):

You have a right to a jury trial in most instances, unless specifically stated otherwise by the Commonwealth.

Right of presumed innocence:

You ALWAYS are to be presumed innocent until proven otherwise by the Commonwealth. The burden of proof (the duty of affirmatively proving a fact or facts in dispute) in a criminal matter rests squarely in the hands of the Commonwealth.
