Challenging Search And Seizures

Did a law enforcement officer pull you over in traffic, although you were obeying the rules of the road? Did the police search you, your car or your home without a search warrant and without your consent?

The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States clearly states that "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause..."

With more than 30 years of experience, I can help protect your rights while building a strong defense against criminal charges. Call my firm, George F. Hildebrandt, Attorney at Law, in Syracuse, New York, today at 315-350-3980 to get started.

Did Law Enforcement Use Illegal Search And Seizure In Your Investigation Or Arrest?

For many years, evidence obtained as a result of an illegal search and seizure could not be used against you in court. Today, the laws are much less clear cut. Different rules apply in federal courts than in New York State courts. There are many different factors to be considered in determining whether a search was illegal, and if so, whether the evidence must be suppressed or excluded from use against you.

Having an intimate knowledge of the law regarding search and seizure, and the experience involved in making and winning suppression motions can make a crucial difference in the outcome of your case. Having evidence excluded from use at trial as the result of an illegal search can result in the case against you being dismissed, or greatly improve your chances of reaching a favorable outcome.
