Criminal

“Anything you say can, and will be used against you.”

These words are taken from the Miranda warning that police read after making an arrest. It is a warning that every word spoken to them could be used to find you guilty in court. If you have been accused of committing a crime, it is imperative that you speak to an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately. Herting Law’s criminal defense attorneys are knowledgeable, aggressive, experienced, and dedicated to achieving the best outcome they can for their clients. Our committed and capable team will assist you through every step of this ordeal and we will fight to protect you, your freedom, and your good name.

The criminal justice system in America is maintained by overworked, overburdened, and underfunded police officers and prosecutors. Those economic realities mean that police, investigators, and prosecutors don’t always follow every lead, pursue every witness statement, properly collect evidence, or conduct field sobriety tests to the standards required by the state. At Herting Law, we carefully consider any evidence against our client while reviewing the conduct of police officers and detectives. We identify departures from proper protocols, constitutional guarantees, and forensic best practices to ensure that your rights are being protected.

If you have been arrested or are a subject of a criminal investigation, it is vital that you talk to the qualified criminal defense attorneys at Herting Law before speaking with police or prosecutors. Any innocent mistake or inaccurate recollection offered to investigators can be profoundly harmful to efforts to preserving your freedom. By hiring Herting Law you send a clear message that your freedom will not be taken from you, call or email us for a consultation.
