The Fourth Amendment prohibits law enforcement from engaging in unreasonable searches and seizures. To protect your rights, I will review the evidence to determine the following:

  • Did the police have the right to conduct a search?
  • Did the police have the right to make an arrest?
  • Did the police obtain evidence through an invalid search warrant?
  • Were your constitutional rights violated?

If your rights have been violated, I will aggressively pursue corrective action, including the suppression of any illegally obtained evidence and the dismissal of any charges unsupported by sufficient cause.

New Supreme Court Precedent: The recent United States Supreme Court case, Arizona vs. Gant, limited the ability of law enforcement to search a vehicle. No longer can the police make a warrantless search of a vehicle after a suspect has been detained. This case will have a major impact on drug cases throughout Utah and the United States.
