"Know your legal rights!"

YOU ARE PRESUMED INNOCENT

Every person charged with a crime is presumed innocent, the State has to make their case and you do not have to assist them in any way.

THE STATE MUST PROVE YOU GUILTY BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT!

The State bears the burden to show you are guilty of any crime you are charged with beyond a reasonable doubt. They must prove each element of the crime you are charged with beyond a reasonable doubt. This is true for the smallest misdemeanors and the most severe felonies.

YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE FREE FROM UNREASONABLE SEARCHES AND SEIZURES!

If law enforcement violates this right, any evidence they recover can be kept out of court.

YOU CAN ONLY BE ARRESTED UPON PROBABLE CAUSE!

If you are arrested for a crime and probable cause does not exist, then all evidence recovered as a result of the arrest must be kept out of court.

YOU HAVE GUARANTEED CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS THAT MUST BE RESPECTED!

Among others: the right to counsel, the right to confront all witnesses against you, the right to be free from excessive fines or punishment, etc.

At all stages of the criminal process you need experienced legal counsel by your side. From arrest, setting a bond, preliminary hearings, negotiating with the State's attorneys, all the way up to trial you need an attorney by your side to ensure that your rights are being protected and helping you achieve the best possible outcome for your particular case.
