Criminal Law Attorneys In Clearwater, Florida
For the average person, being arrested and charged with a criminal offense is an extremely frightening experience. A conviction for a criminal offense will typically remain on your record for life. Of more immediate concern are the judicial penalties that could be imposed if convicted such as a term of incarceration, loss of your driving privileges, or a limitation of your freedom while on probation. You have a number of rights as an accused. The most important of those rights is the right to counsel. Exercising your right to counsel protects you and your rights throughout the prosecution of your case.

YOUR RIGHTS AS AN ACCUSED IN FLORIDA
The United States Constitution guarantees you a number of important rights, including:
- Right against unreasonable searches and seizures
- Right to counsel
- Right to a reasonable bond
- Right to remain silent
- Right to a jury trial
- Right to a speedy trial
- Right to confront and cross-examine witnesses against you
- Right to appeal a conviction
These rights, most of which are found in the Bill of Rights, can only help you if you understand them and assert them when appropriate. Although the law requires some of these rights to be read to you when you are arrested, neither the police nor the prosecuting attorney will go out of their way to explain or remind of you of your rights past that point. This is one of the many reasons why you should be represented by an experienced Florida criminal defense attorney from the moment you are arrested or you have reason to believe you are a suspect in a crime.
Without an attorney on your side many of your rights could be violated. Furthermore, the more time that passes the more likely it is that evidence or witnesses that could help your defense will disappear. For these reasons we urge you to contact the Clearwater Florida criminal law attorneys at the Law Offices of Powers Sellers & Finkelstein, PLC today by calling 1-855-PSF-FIRM, 727-531-2926 or by filling out our online contact form.
