Miranda Rights - Useful Answers From Alabama Law Firm Barclay Law, LLC
Know your rights. Contact Birmingham, AL lawyer John Michael Barclay
Your Miranda rights grant you the right to refuse to answer self-incriminating questions asked by police or other law enforcement personnel after you have been arrested. Alabama criminal defense lawyer John Michael Barclay thoroughly understands this law, which went into effect nationwide in 1966 as a result of a U.S. Supreme Court case. That's why attorney Barclay has such a strong track record for helping people get charges dismissed if their Miranda rights were violated.
This federal law reinforces the Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. A case might be dismissed if the police officers failed to tell the person he had a right to remain silent while being arrested. That's why it's important that you contact Barclay Law, LLC as soon as possible to discuss the details of your case. Attorney Barclay knows the law inside and out. If you were arrested, the officer should have read you your Miranda rights, whether you were charged with a misdemeanor or a felony.

"Don't give up before the battle's even started," attorney Barclay often says.
This idea rings true in cases involving potential violations of your Miranda rights. Before police officers arrest you, they can ask you questions, but you do not have to answer those questions. Once the police officer arrests you, the officer must immediately read you your Miranda rights. If the arresting officer fails to do so, anything you say cannot be admissible in court and will further give attorney Barclay leverage to favorably resolve your case.
