Have you been charged with a criminal offense?
In facing criminal charges, or being tried in a court of law for committing a crime, a person has certain rights that cannot be ignored or undermined. Many of these rights are delineated in our nation's Constitution. Some of these rights involve the ability to retain legal representation in the form of an attorney, or the right to remain silent. In putting these rights into action, an individual can provide themselves with the strongest chance of a fair, balanced case, thereby avoiding the possibility of being punished for a crime that they did not commit.
If you have been charged with a crime, it is important that you possess full knowledge of your rights. A Los Angeles criminal defense attorney can provide you with information regarding these rights, and provide you with professional legal representation in a court of law.
