Defending The Accused

Your defense before a prosecutor, judge or jury is more than an attempt to get the best results for you. It is actually a battleground for your constitutional rights as someone charged with a crime.

Your Constitutional Rights

At Haug, Farrar & Franco, PLLC, when one of our defense attorneys represents you in a criminal case, we will take our responsibility very, very seriously. The outcome of your case can affect your future. If your verdict sets a legal precedent, it can potentially affect case outcomes for other defendants down the road.

Know Your Rights

Our goal for you, if we represent you, will be to protect your rights such as:

  • Your right to remain silent
  • Your right to freedom from illegal search and seizure by the police
  • Your right to know the exact nature of the charges against you
  • Your right to a trial by jury
  • Your right to legal representation

You can exercise your right to remain silent right away. Do not — we repeat, — do not under any circumstances submit to questioning by the police without evoking your right to an attorney's counsel first. The police may ask your name, but that's the last question you should answer until you get a lawyer to represent you.

Protect Your Rights

Take charge right away after a criminal arrest or even accusations with no arrest yet. Call us to learn how we can represent you effectively after a criminal arrest on suspicion of one or more of the following offenses:
