Have you been charged with a crime? Don’t know where to turn for help?
If you or a family member has been arrested for a crime, you probably have a lot of questions and concerns. You are worried about your future and your family’s future. A criminal conviction can result in a stiff penalty, including jail or prison time and fines. Some criminal convictions can result in a permanent criminal record and affect your ability to rent an apartment, drive your car, or even obtain employment. If you are an immigrant, a criminal conviction may result in deportation or removal. If you are facing any of the above calls The Law Office of Edna Herrera Dinsdale today.
You Have a Constitutional Right to Have an Attorney Present When Questioned by Police.
It is your right under the United States Constitution to have legal counsel present when you are questioned by the police or any law enforcement agency. If you are facing criminal charges in the Rio Grande Valley contact The Law Office of Edna Herrera Dinsdale for immediate assistance. It is very important that you obtain the advice of qualified counsel as soon as possible — before you talk to either a State or Federal law enforcement officer.
Anything You Say Can and Will Be Used Against You in a Court of Law
According to the Fifth Amendment of the United States Constitution, you cannot be compelled to incriminate yourself. However, many people who are charged with a crime make statements that are self-incriminating because they do not seek the advice of a lawyer. Don’t make that mistake! Anything you say to the police during an investigation can and will be used against you in a court of law.
Contact The Law Office of Edna Herrera Dinsdale before you say anything during a police interview or interrogation — even if they tell you that you are not a suspect! Always remember, you have the right to remain silent.
