McAllen, Edinburg And Rio Grande Valley Criminal Defense Attorney Who Fights For Results
Any contact with law enforcement should not be taken likely. Many people understand the idea of the right to remain silent. With the portrayal of the “Miranda Warning” in popular culture, however, some people may not understand that voluntarily speaking with police may waive the right to remain silent. If you believe you are under investigation for an alleged offense, it is smart to speak with an experienced criminal defense lawyer to help you to safeguard your rights.
It is not necessary to wait for formal charges to seek representation from a criminal defense attorney. You may seek the guidance of an attorney during any investigation. Once a formal charge or indictment arises, it is critical for you consider obtaining the guidance and representation of an aggressive criminal defense lawyer.

You may also be looking at jail or prison time, expensive fines and community service. This kind of damage can complicate your future. If you are under investigation or facing charges, you need the help of an experienced McAllen criminal defense attorney.
