Asserting Your Rights Against Illegal Searches

In America, police who lack evidence don't get to go on fishing expeditions just because they suspect illegal activity. If you were subjected to an unreasonable search or seizure, you have every right to push back hard to assert your rights.

At Rubin, Glickman, Steinberg and Gifford, we have the knowledge and experience to defend you against all types of illegal searches or unjustified seizures. Our lawyers include several former prosecutors, and we leverage our knowledge of the justice system to pursue the most advantageous outcomes possible for our clients.

We serve clients in Bucks and Montgomery counties and throughout the Delaware Valley.

What Grounds Did Law Enforcement Claim To Have For The Search?

Law enforcement officials are generally required to get a search warrant before executing a search. To be sure, there are certain exceptions to this. But the basic requirement of seeking a warrant before police are allowed to search is a basic constitutional principle.

With drug-related charges, police may claim some sort of exigent circumstances justified the search. Or they may have already arrested you, perhaps on other charges, and claimed the right to do a search incident to arrest.

This is a time when you need a strong defense attorney to protect your rights and help you navigate a difficult situation. The same is true when law enforcement seizes property from you, contending that it is related to a crime.
