Does Hiring a Criminal Lawyer Help?

As former prosecutors, the founding partners at Raiser & Kenniff, PC, have a deep and thorough understanding of the criminal justice system. This experience makes it possible for our lawyers to effectively negotiate with the prosecution, and get you the best outcome possible. Having this experience on your side is invaluable. Without a talented team of criminal defense lawyers on your side, you may end up going to jail, in addition to severe fines.

What is the Arraignment Process?

When you’re initially charged with a crime, you are required to enter a plea. You can enter a guilty, or non-guilty plea. The defendant can enter a guilty plea, whereby the judge would then sentence the defendant. This second plea the defendant can enter is one of non-guilty. This means the defendant denies guilt and the case will be set for a later time.

What is the motion to supress?

Motion to suppress is a request to the judge for certain evidence to be excluded from consideration by the judge or jury at trial. This typically arises when the credibility of the evidence is in question, and as a result, could taint the ultimate verdict. This is often used to weaken the prosecutions case, and improve your chances of being vindicated.

Should I speak to a police officer, if arrested?

Most people think that if you’re arrested, you have to answer any and all questions an office asks of you. This is not correct. You have the right to remain silent, and should exercise that right. Be assured – the prosecutor will use any evidence he/she can, against you, even if it’s something you said as a passing remark to a police officer. Cooperate with the instructions of the officer, i.e. “Get in the car,” but do not engage them in a conversation about the alleged crime. Request a lawyer immediately.
