Knowledgeable Representation At Every Step Of The Process
Being arrested is incredibly distressing. However, it is only the first of a series of events, including multiple hearings, interviews, filings, and more. A single misstep in any direction could make the difference between liberty and imprisonment.
The Constitution guarantees you the right to legal counsel so that you can make informed choices, fully aware of all your legal rights. At Meltzer & Bell, P.A., we advise your options and help you understand your best opportunities.
Do not speak to law enforcement officers when you're a suspect. Everything you say can be twisted by prosecutors into evidence against you. Instead, exercise your constitutional right to remain silent and let us do the talking.
Finding Every Option For Your Defense
Police also must have sufficient cause to stop or arrest you. To stop you on the streets of West Palm Beach, they must have reasonable suspicion. To pull you over in a car, they must have probable cause. Your lawyer can challenge the stop that lead to your arrest.
There are other tactics your lawyer may use, as well: Questioning the scientific rigor of the tests used in a DUI case or vigorously cross-examining the state's witnesses to show the inconsistencies in their stories.
At Meltzer & Bell, P.A., we will employ any legal means to represent you and fight for the best result in your case.
