The Rights of the Accused

Criminal Defense lawyers at the Sprano Law Firm defend the constitutional rights of the accused in state and federal prosecutions across Northern Virginia.

If you have been accused of committing  a crime . . .

Knowing your rights is the first step towards asserting them.  Most people have heard the familiar "you have the right to remain silent, ..." Miranda Warnings from watching TV, but what does that really mean?   What happens if the police do not read you your rights? What if they searched your house, car, or person without a warrant and without your consent? What other important rights do you have in a criminal case?

At the Sprano Law Firm, we believe that the most important right in the criminal justice system is the right to the effective assistance of competent legal counsel in your defense.   Without the right to a good attorney, which is guaranteed to every American by the 6th Amendment to the United States Constitution, other rights would be all but meaningless.

Our experienced criminal defense lawyers believe that getting effective assistance of counsel means much more than simply hiring a lawyer who passed the bar exam and shows up for court. It means choosing a lawyer with a thorough knowledge of the law, the intelligence and experience to identify the important issues in your case, and the skill and ability to present your side of the case and fight to protect your rights in the most effective manner possible. It also means having a lawyer who genuinely cares about the outcome of your case, and is willing to take the time to make sure that you fully understand the process and your options.

You have the right to hire a qualified criminal defense attorney who will provide the individual attention your case deserves; an attorney who will get to know your situation and your goals, and work diligently to achieve them; an attorney who you can trust to take your case down the path that is right for you.  If you have been charged with a crime and have a court date coming up in Arlington, Alexandria, Fairfax, Loudoun, Prince William, or any other Northern Virginia jurisdiction - including Federal court - do not delay.  Call the experienced and highly qualified criminal defense lawyers at the Sprano Law Firm today.
