The moment a police officer, or other law enforcement officer, contacts you begins the most critical time in your criminal defense case. At this time it is important to know your Miranda rights:
- 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
Miranda rights do not go into effect until after an arrest is made. If you are being questioned by a law enforcement officer, ask the officer whether you are under arrest or merely being questioned. You have no obligations to answer questions and the officer should inform you that the questioning is voluntary and that you are free to leave at any time.
After you are arrested, time is of the essence. Contact the Senh Law Associates at 925-408-8546 as soon as possible to protect your rights.
We will ensure that your rights are protected at every stage of the criminal prosecution process. From arraignment, plea negotiations, to trial, everything that can be done, will be done. Along the way, care will be taken in explaining your rights and the process so that you are never left in the dark.
