Constitution Law

Both the United States Constitution and Michigan Constitution guarantees protections and rights of the accused. These rights provide someone who is under investigation, alleged of committing a crime or charged with a criminal offense under Michigan law or federal law. To ensure that you are provided the best possible protection and defense, consult with a constitutional defense attorney to ensure that you do not waive any of these rights, since waiving such rights could have an effect of your case and appeal.

Also it is important to ensure that you take advantage of these rights from the outset, since failure to raise such rights could also have a damaging effect on your case or investigation, including an appeal. Again before you speak with any law enforcement agency or if you are facing some investigation, it is important that you know what rights you have and how to invoke them.
