Illegal Search & Seizure

Long Beach Criminal Defense Attorney

According to the California constitution, as well as the fourth amendment to the U.S. constitution, all citizens are meant to be free from illegal search & seizure. Attorney Leonard Matsuk is wholly dedicated to the protection of individual's privacy rights, and is available to assist you if you have been subjected to an illegal search & seizure.

As Mr. Matsuk is a Long Beach criminal defense attorney with more than four decades of experience in practicing criminal law, he can provide skilled and knowledgeable help in your criminal case, and fight for any illegally obtained evidence to be thrown out in court. With his help, you may be able to reach a resolution in your case in which your charges are reduced or wholly dismissed.

A law enforcement official is only allowed to search you or your property if he or she possesses probable cause, which is defined as a reasonable belief that a crime has been, or is about to be committed. Frequently, an officer will seek to get around this by asking your consent to perform a search. It is absolutely your right to say no to such a search, and should you do so, they will have no choice but to cease their attempts. If they intend to perform any search after you have declined permission, they are required to obtain a warrant.

Are You the Victim of an Illegal Search & Seizure?

If you have been the victim of an illegal search & seizure, any information or evidence obtained against you may be deemed as inadmissible in a court of law. It is strongly recommended that you seek the help of an attorney if you believe you have been victimized, as they will be able to fight aggressively on your behalf in order to see any illegally obtained evidence thrown out in your criminal case.

If you have been subjected to an illegal search & seizure, contact a Long Beach Criminal Defense Lawyer who can fight to uphold your rights in a court of law.
