One of the most important elements that can determine the outcome of a criminal case is evidence. Evidence can only be used, however, if it was lawfully seized in a way that did not violate the constitutional rights of an individual.
At Miller & Pugh Law Office, P.C., we are determined to protect the civil rights of our clients. If you believe that you, your property or your workplace was illegally searched and evidence may have been unlawfully seized, we are here to help you get justice.
Aggressively Protecting Your Fourth Amendment Rights
Search and seizure law is a very distinct and complex aspect of criminal law. This is why it is crucial to seek the assistance of an experienced criminal defense lawyer who understands search and seizure law when you are involved in a criminal investigation.
Peoria illegal search and seizure attorneys C. Matthew Miller and Robert E. Pugh are not only familiar with these laws, they have also successfully defended the Fourth Amendment rights of our clients at Miller & Pugh Law Offices, P.C., in a wide range of Illinois misdemeanor and felony cases involving alleged drug crimes, gun crimes and other serious offenses.
Our clients often ask questions like, could a police officer legally stop me? As well as, can you get my case dismissed if there was an illegal search and seizure of evidence? Our team will help you answer these questions during an informative and confidential consultation. Learning about the circumstances around your case, we will thoroughly review:
- The time, place and location of your traffic stop or search
- The reason for your traffic stop or search
- What type of property was seized during your traffic stop or search
Our lawyers are determined to identify if the reason for your search was legally sufficient and did not violate your constitutional rights. We will also work to uncover if law enforcement unlawfully intimidated you, coerced a confession or acted in any other way that overstepped their authority.
