Invoke Your Miranda Rights Against Self-Incrimination - “You have the right to remain silent...”
If you are stopped by a federal or state law enforcement officer, you can invoke your constitutional right to remain silent. You should contact our office immediately so that we can protect your legal rights before you make any statement to law enforcement. To invoke your right to remain silent you simply say, “I am invoking my right to remain silent until AFTER I have spoken to an attorney.” After invoking your rights, do not make any statement about the facts of the case.
Even if you are completely innocent of the accusation, once you learn you are the target of a criminal investigation, never make a statement to any law enforcement officer. The Constitution of the United States of America recognizes your right against self-incrimination. Under most circumstances, your silence can not be used against you at trial. In other words, the jury will never be told that you asked for an attorney. You can decide to speak to law enforcement, but your statements may be misconstrued and used against you. Your side of the story can best be told through your attorney.
Fighting for Your Best Result
Every case is different. Together we can devise a strategy to defend you against the pending criminal charges. If you have been charged with a crime in the greater Las Vegas area, Joel Mann can negotiate with the District Attorney’s Office to get the charges dropped or dismissed. If the charges are not dropped, there are often defenses that can be aggressively litigated before trial like:
Joel Mann will discuss all your options and, with his knowledge and experience, guide you through the legal system in Las Vegas to help you obtain the best result for your situation.
Mitigate the Direct and Indirect Consequences of Criminal Charges
If you have been arrested for a criminal offense, the indirect consequences may be much greater than just the punishment that the court will announce. Many indirect consequences occur after an arrest that can last for a lifetime. Certain types of criminal convictions can be a career-ending event for professions including teachers, doctors, accountants, dentists, and pharmacists, among other professions. It's critical to work with an attorney who understands what's at stake and will not settle for any outcome that will irrevocably harm your career.
Defending Tourists in Las Vegas
Were you arrested for DUI, shoplifting, possession of marijuana, drug possession, solicitation, or any other misdemeanor or felony while visiting Las Vegas? If so, Attorney Joel Mann may be able to handle your entire case without your presence. In certain cases, we can resolve your case without any requirement that you return to Las Vegas. If you are charged with a misdemeanor offense, Joel may be able to convince the court to waive your appearance at many, if not all, of your court dates. For many clients who live outside the State of Nevada, we strive to help you avoid any costly and unnecessary trips to court while we are aggressively fighting the charges.
