Illegal Search & Seizure

What Is an Illegal Search & Seizure?

Houston Drug Crime Attorneys Explain Your Rights

Experienced Houston illegal search & seizure attorneys know that police reports are often inaccurate. In fact, what the officer says happened and the facts at the scene are often very different. When police don't have a legal warrant or have no real probable cause for searching a property and seizing property, their only recourse is to put their own slant on what actually happened at the scene of the arrest.

At The Law Offices of Jed Silverman, our Houston illegal search & seizure lawyers go beneath the surface of what the police say happened. We investigate police procedures for search and seizure and make sure your rights were protected at every step of the process. In many cases, if we discover that our clients' rights were not protected and that property was seized illegally, the evidence is inadmissible and a felony can be reduced to a misdemeanor. In a three-strike state like Texas, that can be a critical factor.

Search-and-seizure laws are in place to protect our rights as free people of this state and country. Whenever we represent a client in a drug case, we look carefully at the facts behind the arrest and even more carefully at the evidence the prosecution says it has against you. There is more to an effective criminal defense case than simply guilt or innocence. The Constitution protects your civil rights. Oftentimes, we can prove that the police officers at the scene disagree on the facts or fail to follow legal procedures. We look for every opportunity to have your charges reduced or dismissed.
