Reading Evidence Suppression Lawyers
Filing Motions to Suppress Evidence
A skilled Reading criminal defense lawyer will examine the prosecution's case thoroughly to determine whether the evidence was collected legally. At Emkey Law Firm in Berks County defense lawyer Daniel P. Emkey is a former prosecutor who knows how to determine if evidence may have been illegally obtained. When we identify such evidence, we file a motion to suppress it from consideration. In many instances, the suppression of evidence can result in a dismissal of the case, a reduction in the charges or a mistrial.
Reading Attorney Daniel P. Emkey may uncover evidence that should have been reported to our firm in violation of the Fifth Amendment. Judges may agree to suppress evidence that was found as a result of other illegally obtained evidence or an illegal search and seizure. However, not all illegally obtained evidence can be suppressed.
It is critical to have an attorney who understands the limits on evidence suppression.
Understanding the Motion Process
A Reading criminal defense lawyer should also understand the process of drafting and filing motions and arguing the case at motion hearings. Attorney Emkey has experience employing this procedure and has succeeded in convincing a judge that evidence should be suppressed. Clients of our firm can be assured that they are working with an attorney who understands the rules of evidence as they apply to evidence suppression.
Issues related to evidence suppression are particularly important in drug crimes cases. Many drug cases turn on the legality of car searches, vehicle stops and search warrants. This makes it important to review the police reports and other documents carefully to be sure the evidence was legally obtained.
