How a Capitol Heights Criminal Attorney Can Help
The role of a defense attorney is to protect the interests and rights of their clients. Our attorneys ensure you are treated fairly throughout the criminal justice process and will take action if/when your rights are violated. This could mean calling for a dismissal of the charges in the case of a wrongful arrest, motioning the court to suppress illegally seized evidence, or working with the prosecution on a favorable plea agreement. The exact methods of your attorney will largely be determined by the facts of your case.
