Know Your Rights

Criminal arrests can be difficult to handle, and without the representation of an attorney, you could be facing a challenging uphill battle. When you are facing the Illinois criminal justice system, you need to ensure that you are working with an attorney who can help protect your rights and defend your freedoms; Albert L. Wysocki can! I am proud to be a highly respected and experienced criminal defense lawyer and I have secured numerous successful case outcomes for my clients. When you retain the representation of my firm, I can ensure that you understand your rights and exercise them in order to gain the best possible outcome for your case. At a police stop, you have:

  • The right to remain silent. You do not have to speak with an officer. Be courteous and polite, but do not say anything more than your name. Anything you say can and will be held against you in a court of law.
  • The right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed to you; however, it is always important that you first contact my firm and learn why having a former judge and prosecutor on your side can benefit your case.
  • The right to a fair trial. Should your case go to trial, you have the right to a trial by a jury of your peers. Denial of a trial is against the law, and an attorney will ensure that this right is fully protected.

You are also safe from unlawful search, seizure and police stops, and if you feel that your rights have been violated in any manner, contact my firm right away. It is important that you take action immediately and retain the assistance of a trusted lawyer. Contact my firm today to schedule a consultation with a Lake County criminal defense attorney now.
