Understand Your Rights in Seattle, WA
Our Criminal Defense Lawyers in Seattle have your back.
Individuals accused of committing crimes need to be well-informed about their rights and options under the law. This is especially true for individuals who are encountering the judicial system for the first time. The prosecutor's goal is to convict - not to exonerate - in an effort to quell criminal activity and behaviors. This tends to lead to overzealous law enforcement officials who are overreaching when arresting individuals. Fortunately, our country's laws protect the rights of the accused in order to ensure fair treatment and due process.
An individual accused of committing a crime has the right to:
- Remain silent
- Have a speedy and public trial by jury
- Confront witnesses
- Not be tried twice for the same offense
- Be represented by an attorney
- Be proven guilty beyond reasonable doubt
Perhaps one of the most important rights of all is the right to adequate and legal representation. If you are accused of a crime, the sooner you retain the services of a lawyer, the higher your chance of obtaining the favorable case outcome you desire. When it comes to protecting your future and your freedoms, taking swift action is absolutely necessary.
