When the Commonwealth of Massachusetts decides to level a criminal accusation against you, the state’s power puts your basic freedom in jeopardy. Suffolk County has a tough-on-crime judicial system that imposes harsh penalties and jail time on offenders. That’s why it’s important that you work with an experienced criminal defense attorney that can either negotiate a reasonable disposition on your behalf or force prosecutors to prove every inch of their case. Attorney Nitin Dalal has worked in the criminal court system for more than two decades.
You Have Rights
If law enforcement has charged you with a crime or are treating you as a suspect, it’s imperative that you contact an experienced attorney immediately. Having legal counsel at your side is the best way to assure that your rights are not being trampled. An experienced attorney can help protect you from self-incrimination or inadvertently providing investigators with a reason to not cross you off their suspect list.
If you have been charged, securing legal counsel early in the process provides an opportunity for an attorney to lobby the courts at your arraignment. We’ll argue for personal recognizance or reasonable bail so that you can maintain your freedom.
Unlawful Searches and Seizures
Many criminal cases involve the police gathering evidence from traffic stops, searches of your vehicle, home or place of business. For police to go beyond routine questions and an actual search, they must either have a reasonable suspicion a crime is being committed or a valid search warrant. As an experienced law firm, we will scrutinize the actions and methods used by investigators to put them to the test in a court of law.
Powerful Criminal Defense
There’s a long road between an initial arrest and proving allegations against you in a court of law. Warrantless searches, tainted evidence, faulty eye-witness testimony and failures by police to follow proper procedure can be used to undermine the state’s case. Such legal issues can open the door to a suitable plea agreement or the state dropping its allegations. When prosecutors won’t act reasonably, we won’t hesitate to mount a powerful legal defense on your behalf and see them at trial.
If you have been charged with a crime or are the subject of a criminal investigation, it’s imperative that you work with an experienced Suffolk County criminal defense attorney. At the Law Office of Nitin Dalal, we believe an experienced attorney is your best defense!
