Because attorney Kusturiss has worked in the district attorney’s office, he knows that prosecutors will customarily take an aggressive approach with you, seeking to intimidate or confuse you so that they can get a guilty plea or a conviction. When you hire us, we will conduct a thorough investigation of the facts and circumstances surrounding your arrest, looking to make certain your constitutional rights were protected. We will examine whether law enforcement officers had probable cause to conduct a search, seizure or arrest, and whether you were properly advised of your Miranda rights if taken into custody.
