The criminal justice system is extremely tough in Florida, and if you are accused of a crime, it is vital that you take immediate action and retain a Brevard County criminal defense attorney from Kernan & Austin, LLC as quickly as possible. Early involvement in the case is often crucial to getting charges dismissed or reduced. You have a short window of time before being formally charged, and with our efforts on your behalf, you could avoid the matter altogether.
In order to defend a case, we first conduct a full review and evaluation of every aspect of the evidence that led to the arrest. At Kernan & Austin, LLC, we leave no stone unturned in the pursuit of truth and justice on our clients' behalf. This investigative process includes reviewing witness statements, police reports and lab evidence, as well as examining the procedures used in acquiring the evidence.
Overzealous police officers have been known to overstep the boundaries of the law and violate the rights of the accused in the process of making an arrest. Whenever we discover that such inappropriate action has taken place, we immediately launch a court challenge to suppress any evidence that was obtained illegally. When this petition for suppression is successful, the case — now without any evidence — may be dismissed.
