Arrest / Search & Seizure
The right to be free from the government searching or taking one’s property was so valuable to our Founding Fathers that both the United States Constitution and the Texas Constitution strictly restricts the police, or any government agent from invading your privacy. The Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution guarantees the people the right to be free from “unreasonable searches and seizures.” Likewise, Article 1, Section 9 of the Texas Constitution states that “the people shall be secure in their persons, houses, papers and possessions, from all unreasonable searches and seizures.” Although we hold these rights to be dear and central to our way of life, if the government violates your rights, you are in an uphill battle. As former felony prosecutors, all of the lawyers at Vinas & Graham, PLLC have a wealth of experience dealing with issues involving government agents violating your Constitutional rights.
Joe Vinas taught literally hundreds of cadets and police officers at the Houston Police Academy and the Tomball Police Department the laws and procedures behind Arrest, Search and Seizure. In fact, very few criminal defense attorneys in Texas and across the nation have such unique experience in their career. Because he taught them the law behind Arrest, Search, and Seizure, Joe knows how to find the mistakes police officers make when conducting an arrest or a search and seizure of evidence.
If the police violated your rights while investigating your case or arresting you, the lawyers at Vinas & Graham, PLLC know how to defend your case. Whether in a motion to suppress hearing that could result in the government having no evidence against you, or in a jury trial where the jury has an opportunity to find you not guilty if the police violated your rights, Vinas & Graham, PLLC can handle your case every step of the way.
