Know Your Rights
Experienced Criminal Defense Lawyers Serving Wisconsin for More Than 30 Years
You are guaranteed certain rights under the U. S. Constitution. You have the right to remain silent. You have the right to have an attorney present before answering questions by police.
If you are stopped by the police in your car, they do not have the right to search your car unless you give them permission. They may stop you IF they have probable cause, or a reasonable belief that a criminal act is in progress or has happened. If you are arrested, the police must read you your Miranda rights.
Anything you say can and will be used against you. Whatever rights you have, they won’t protect themselves.
For that, you can count on us. Courtney & Molter is here to protect your constitutional rights and help you explore alternatives to jail, prison or incarceration, including:
- Community service alternatives
- Deferred prosecution
- Home detention
- Restorative justice programs
- Counseling alternatives
- Cooperation agreements
The law firm of Courtney & Molter provides skilled criminal defense to individuals in the Milwaukee-Waukesha area and throughout the state of Wisconsin.
