Asserting Your Rights Against Illegal Searches & Seizures in New Jersey
An illegal search is a violation of your constitutional rights. If evidence was illegally obtained, we will seek to suppress that evidence before trial. In many cases, suppression of crucial evidence can lead to the dismissal of your charges.
Most drug cases depend on evidence obtained during search and seizure by law enforcement. Whether you are being charged for possession, distribution, or manufacture, we will examine the police reports and assess how evidence was obtained in your case. An officer must have a legal basis to pull over your motor vehicle. They must have a warrant to search your home. If you are stopped on the street, they must have probable cause to search your person. Regardless of whether the police have a warrant, any search is subject to an application to suppress evidence and an examination of the circumstances in light of your Fourth Amendment rights.
