If a search or seizure is not legal that is something that a lawyer can assist you with in determining whether or not your rights have been violated in a manner that’s relevant to a criminal prosecution or any forfeiture or seizure issue that may have arisen relative to your search or seizure. If a search or seizure is illegal however, you sense that it’s illegal, even the police are doing it. The best rule of thumb is to keep your mouth shut, not fight the police over it, in terms of getting yourself in further trouble for resisting the officer in the execution of what they may believe is their legal duty, even if it’s not, then let a lawyer sort it out after the fact. If you have questions though, in the meantime call a lawyer today.
