Assert Your Constitutional Right
to Counsel

As soon as you have reason to believe that you are about to be accused of either a state or federal offense, call Howard Snader and arrange to have him with you before you answer any questions whatsoever. Inform police politely that you are asserting your constitutional right to have an attorney present, and then say nothing further until your lawyer arrives.

Risk the temptation to explain your side of the story to police. Do not let anyone tell you that insisting on having a lawyer present is tantamount to an admission of guilt. It’s not; it’s exercising a precious right set forth in the Constitution of the United States. You are innocent in the eyes of the law until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, and Howard Snader will conduct an in depth investigation and use every means at his disposal to create that doubt.

Get a Lawyer Who Can Focus on You

When you’ve been charged with a serious crime, you owe it to yourself and your family to fight the charges with all the resources you can muster. If you have little income, you may qualify to be represented by a public defender. This can be a terrible mistake that can cost you dearly. Public defenders carry enormous case loads, which means however much they might like to, they can’t devote a sufficient amount of time to your case to give you the focused and aggressive defense that is needed to salvage your future.

Don’t wait to see how things play out, and don’t be discouraged. It is easy to feel helpless when facing the power of the government, but defenses are available when you have the right attorney on your side. Call Howard Snader without delay to safeguard your future, for yourself and for those you love.
