Law Enforcement Conduct

Our lawyers focus on building a strong defense on your behalf. We are well-versed in police procedure and the methods for handling traffic stops.

If you were stopped while driving, law enforcement must have a valid reason for stopping you. If your car was searched using K9 dogs or other measures, law enforcement must have had probable cause for the search.
