Nobody Talks, Everybody Walks. Ohio criminal defense lawyer with nearly 40 years experience

“I was wrongly convicted of murder. I spent nearly 17 years in prison fighting my case. When I finally won a new trial, I chose Greg Robey to be a part of my defense team. He found an FBI agent who had worked on the case in the 1980s, along with critical pieces of evidence that we thought were long lost. After a long and very hard-fought trial, I was found Not Guilty of all charges. I owe my freedom to Greg Robey and my defense team.” -R.R., Ravenna, Ohio

What are Your Rights?

Being arrested for any type of crime can be an intimidating experience; simply being stopped or frisked by police can be nerve-wracking. Unfortunately, many people stopped or arrested by police do not realize that they have certain inalienable rights. If you do not know your rights, how do you know if and when they are being violated? Immediately after police arrest you, contact an experienced attorney. He or she can explain to you and protect the following rights:

  • To remain silent— Police officers face many dangers. In order to perform their duty and to protect the community, law enforcement officials may approach you and ask you questions. However, while you are encouraged to cooperate with police, you have the right to refuse to answer any questions. You have the right to remain silent and you should do so until you have a chance to speak to an attorney.
  • To counsel — You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford a lawyer, one will be provided for you. Moreover, all police questioning must stop the moment you request an attorney.
  • To be free from unreasonable searches and seizures — The Fourth Amendment protects you from unreasonable searches and seizures. In general, the police cannot search your home without your consent or without a search warrant.

If you or your loved one is arrested for a drug crime, white-collar crime or other offense, seek competent legal help immediately. An experienced lawyer can protect your rights and assist you in building a solid defense.
