Riverside Criminal Attorneys
There are no major highways in Riverside that you can point to as the primary source of encounters with police. All traffic stops and related motor vehicle searches therefore occur on local roadways like Bridgeboro Street, S. Fairview Street and East Washington Street. Whether you were arrested in such a context, in your apartment or house, or any other scenario, you have rights under the law. Our attorneys know those rights well and are ready to challenge the police and prosecutors. This typically yields a result that is something other than a guilty finding. To discuss the details of what happened to you and how our lawyers can help you achieve a favorable outcome, call our firm at 856-234-8900.
