How We Defend Against Serious Felonies

The police are often under intense pressure to solve violent, serious and high-profile crimes. The public needs to feel safe, the wrong-doer needs to be brought to account, and the victim and the victim's family deserve justice. While these are noble goals to some extent, reality is that investigations sometimes get rushed and not all theories of what could have happened are properly analyzed. The result can be a rush to judgement that overlooks or misinterprets key information.

Further, the rights of a person accused of a crime can be disregarded by overzealous law enforcement. Even if an officer follows the letter of the law when executing a search warrant or interrogating a suspect, liberties can be taken with facts in order to get the desired result.

The best advice possible is to contact a criminal defense lawyer as soon as you find out that the police are interested in speaking with your or a loved one. Never talk to the police alone. This is a mistake each and every time. Law enforcement investigators are trained professionals who know how to conduct interrogations. Do not think that you will be able to outmaneuver them during an interview. Remain silent and contact a Myrtle Beach criminal defense lawyer immediately. 

We often work with licensed private investigators to reinvestigate serious cases. This gives the ability to expose flaws in the government's case from many different angles including, but not limited to:

  • forensic analysis,
  • witness statements,
  • eyewitness testimony, and
  • event reconstruction.

Every serious case deserves a serious defense. Serious felony charges simply do not resolve themselves. You need a Myrtle Beach criminal defense lawyer who knows how to properly collect and review all of the evidence in a serious case. You need an advocate who can provide you with quality representation.
