Accused Of A Crime In Bucks Or Montgomery County? We Protect Your Rights.
If you have been arrested or are the subject of a police investigation, you need to immediately seek an experienced criminal defense lawyer. You can’t count on the police, the prosecutor or the judge to explain your rights or look out for your best interests.
That is where McMenamin & Margiotti, LLC, comes in. We know how to protect your rights and mount a proper defense. Attorney Patrick McMenamin has practiced criminal law in Montgomery and Bucks counties for over 30 years. He can be counted on for skilled and vigorous representation, no matter what charges you face.
The Experienced Criminal Defense You Need
Whether you are accused of a minor offense or a major crime, the consequences can be harsh and long-lasting. If convicted, you might face jail or years of supervised probation, plus fines, license suspension and other penalties. The permanent criminal record may affect schooling, employment, housing, lending and other facets of your future.
McMenamin & Margiotti, LLC, has handled all manner of criminal charges, including:
- Drug possession and other drug crimes
- Drunk driving (DUI)
- Retail theft (shoplifting) and other thefts
- Burglary and robbery
- Assault charges and domestic violence
- Gun offenses
- Sex crimes
- Other felony, misdemeanor and summary offenses
We will work every angle to get the charges dropped or reduced, or to keep a conviction off your record through a pretrial diversion program. If your case goes to trial, we are skilled litigators who will make the prosecution prove its case.
Don’t Be Fooled Or Intimidated By The Police
If you are arrested or questioned in connection with a crime, DO NOT:
- Provide a statement to the police.
- Try to tell your side of the story.
- Consent to a search of your house, person, car or cellphone.
- Believe that your silence can be used against you.
If you remain silent or refuse to provide information regarding an investigation, you may be told that you will be charged with obstruction of justice. You can’t. If you refuse to consent to a search, the police may tell you that they will get a warrant. Make them.
It is not your job to do their investigation. It cannot be held against you if you politely tell the police that you wish to remain silent or you would feel more secure if they obtained a search warrant. Nor can it be held against you to exercise your constitutional right to speak with an attorney before answering questions.
