It is Crucial to Hire a Skilled and Dedicated Criminal Lawyer and Dangerous and Foolish Not To!

BOND REDUCTIONS: DETERMINATION OF PROBABLE CAUSE; SUPPRESSION OF EVIDENCE AND OTHER TECHNICAL DEFENSES; INVESTIGATION; PLEA BARGAIN WHERE APPROPRIATE; TRIAL.

The failure by a person charged with a criminal offense to hire a skilled and dedicated criminal lawyer is the equivalent of giving up all of his rights under the law. If the client cannot afford the bail set by the Court, it is the criminal lawyer who will defend his right to bail by vociferously arguing for a bond reduction. If there is a defect in the arrest or search warrant, it is the criminal lawyer who will recognize the defect and will seek dismissal on the basis of the defect. At the preliminary hearing to determine if there is probable cause to send the case to the Grand Jury, it is the criminal lawyer who will cross-examine the witnesses for the prosecution and urge that the case be dismissed because the evidence does not support a finding of probable cause. Should the case involve a search and seizure, it is the criminal lawyer who will challenge the legality of the search and seek to suppress the illegally seized evidence. In the midst of all of this activity, it is the criminal lawyer who will thoroughly investigate the case, maintain contact with the prosecutor and if it is in the client’s best interests, negotiate a plea bargain that results in reduced charges or a lighter sentence.

Most importantly, if a plea bargain that is in the client’s best interests, it is the criminal lawyer who will take the case to trial. There, the criminal lawyer, relying upon preparation, experience and skill will zealously do combat against the prosecutor’s attempt to prove the client guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.*

*Reasonable Doubt:

Reasonable doubt is the burden of proof that must be met by the prosecution’s evidence in in order to convict a criminal defendant. It is the highest burden of proof in all of the law because it must overcome the presumption that a person is innocent until proven guilty. Reasonable doubt requires proof that no other logical explanation can be derived from the facts except that the defendant committed the crime. Only if the jurors, based on the evidence, believe “to a moral certainty” that the defendant is guilty, can the defendant be found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

Sam Muldavin will ensure that your Constitutional Rights are protected during a criminal case.

All suspects placed in police custody or in custodial interrogation in Memphis, Tennessee must be advised of their Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination (the right to remain silent) and their Sixth Amendment right to counsel. These rights are commonly known as your Miranda Rights.
In the end, the rights guaranteed to a person charged with a criminal offense are of little meaning or effectiveness unless that person has entrusted his or her case to a trained and experienced criminal lawyer who knows the system, knows the law, possesses the skills necessary to effectively defend his or her client and is ready to advocate aggressively and with passion.

This is where Sam Muldavin comes in. He has the knowledge and experience to protect you and your Constitutional Rights in a Criminal Case.

Miranda: Required Notice to the Client of his Constitutional Rights.

All suspects placed in police custody or in custodial interrogation in Memphis, Tennessee must be advised of their Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination (the right to remain silent) and their Sixth Amendment right to counsel. These rights are commonly known as the Miranda, which are supposed to be but are not always communicated to the suspect as follows:
• You have the right to remain silent.
• Anything you say or do can and will be used against you in a court of law.
• You have the right to consult an attorney before speaking to the police and to have an attorney present during questioning now or in the future.
• If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed for you before any questioning.
• If you decide to answer any questions now, without an attorney present, you will still have the right to stop answering at any time and ask to speak to an attorney.

The Right to Remain Silent—The Most Important Right of All

Of all of the rights guaranteed under the Constitution, the right to remain silent offers the greatest protection to a person suspected of having committed a criminal offense. The jails are filled with persons who were arrested, charged and convicted after willingly speaking to the police because they “had nothing to hide.” The reason is simply because what the individual says may not be what the police choose to hear and an “innocent statement” can often be considered an admission of guilt. Therefore, it is critical for any person who has been arrested and charged with a crime or has merely been requested to give a statement to police to invoke the right to remain silent and under no circumstances speak with police without having a criminal attorney present.

No Lawyer-No Rights

The constitutional rights guaranteed to a person charged with a criminal offense are of little meaning or effectiveness unless that person has entrusted his or her case to a trained and experienced criminal lawyer who knows the system, knows the law, possesses the skills necessary to effectively defend his or her client and is ready to advocate aggressively and with passion. Sam Muldavin of Muldavin Law Firm, PLC knows the law, possesses the skills necessary to effectively defend his clients and is ready to advocate aggressively and with passion as he has for more than thirty years.
