A person’s home may not be searched without a judicially approved warrant, consent to search, or a limited number of exceptions to the warrant requirement. Often, however, law enforcement officers or agents may obtain warrants illegally or manufacture probable cause to justify a search. Consent may be obtained as the result of an illegal arrest or coercion, and emergency circumstances for a search without a warrant may be fabricated. Any search of a person’s residence, with or without a warrant, must be carefully scrutinized by an experienced, knowledgeable criminal defense attorney capable of successfully challenging in court the legality of any search. At RAAB | MAHONEY, we constantly monitor changes in search and seizure law so we are prepared to create winning arguments protecting our clients Fourth Amendment Right to be free of illegal searches and seizures.
