SEARCH AND SEIZURE


 

Search and Seizure The Constitution guarantees everyone certain rights such as the right to privacy, the right to remain silent and the right to be protected from any unwarranted search of one’s person or property by police. The police are aware that they are required to have reasonable suspicion that a crime is being committed before they can begin to encroach on a person’s right to privacy. Police are trained to establish reasonable suspicion or probable cause prior to stopping a vehicle or suspect on the street to interrogate them. Without having a reason to stop a person and search them the courts would throw out any evidence that was found.

 

The reasonable suspicion and probable cause that police give in police reports to justify the search of a person, automobile or home needs to be challenged through motions to suppress evidence. Many times what an officer deems as a justifiable reason for a search is not enough under the law.

 

Challenges to the manner the police searched or seized evidence is usually seen in drug cases where a suspect is stopped and searched and found to be in possession of drugs. It is important to challenge the reason the police engaged in the stop and the manner and reasons for the subsequent search. These challenges are not limited to drug cases but apply in every case that the police conduct a search or seize evidence.

 

Search warrants are obtained by the police by their conducting an investigation in which they detail information obtained either through surveillance or confidential informants. Evidence is then presented to a Judge requesting permission for a warrant to search a specific area, it must amount to sufficient probable cause to believe a crime has been committed or is being committed and that a search of the private property would reveal instruments or fruits of a crime. Search warrants should be challenged through motions to suppress evidence. The manner in which the warrant is executed, the surveillance takes place or the reliability of the informant are all grounds for having the warrant thrown out.

I am happy that I chose Frank to be my lawyer, and I will choose him again in the future. Although we agreed that I will pay him more money if my case went to trial, but he did his best to get my case dropped, and in fact the case was dismissed, and I didnt have to go through a trial or pay him extra money. He did all the work and all i had to do was showing up in court, I didnt need to speak a word. Very impressing, Frank is someone you can trust, and I respect him and his work

Very honest. Accepted my case while I was in NYC. Explained to me exactly what will happen at minimum cost. First time I can say I met an honest attorney. As a business and real estate in NYC, I retained many attorneys whose goal was to maximize their fees. Mr Fernandez was very reasonable and upfront honest with his fee. Very highly reccomend.

Frank Fernandez should be the first call anyone makes within the Boston area for legal representation. As a working professional, I made a horrible mistake and I was arrested with the potential of spending a lot of time in jail with the potential to have charges escalated. His efforts saved me a lot of potential pain and grief. He came to my rescue when I had no family locally to help me out of the situation my actions caused.I was fortunate that I found him out of the chaotic choices that are out there. Frank is professional and cares about all of the elements which affected the outcome of my case. My life and my career are back on track and I could not have done this without Frank's ability to react and change the course of difficult decisions. Trust, integrity, honesty, alongside the ability to dig deep, are just some of the characteristics of the person who accepted my case in the middle of the night.If you need a sanctuary when you can only see your life taking a change for the worse, call Frank and explain the elements of your case. I've got his card in my car, my wallet, my desk when I've got the potential for any type of legal action. I know he's someone that I can depend upon.I'm not posting for sake of Frank's business, I'm posting to convey my thanks for a difficult set of circumstances that I'll not face due to his ability to think quickly and make reliable decisions in spite of the issues that resulted from my actions.
