A criminal accusation is a major disruption in anyone’s life. Regardless of the circumstances it is your right to have the representation of an attorney. And it is crucial that you obtain a highly skilled attorney who understands not only the implications of your arrest but also how to minimize the impacts to you and your family.
At the Mycek Law Firm we put to work for you our combined 45 years of experience to help guide you through the complexities of the Criminal Justice System.
Having your attorney present during questioning is your right under the Fifth Amendment – commonly known as your “Miranda Rights”. When in doubt, request an attorney and remain silent. Having the benefit of an attorney by your side, particularly during any questioning, helps to ensure your rights are protected and that the interrogation process follows the letter of the law.
Your specific “Miranda Rights” are as follows:
- You have the right to remain silent.
- Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.
- You have the right to an attorney.
- If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed for you.
