CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY IN COLUMBIA

YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT

The one thing you must not do, whether you have been charged with DUI, a sex offense, or domestic violence, is to agree to speak about the case with investigators.  No matter how friendly they may seem, remember – their job is to solve crimes and convict people.  You would not have been charged if they did not already believe you are guilty, so anything you say will only be used to add to the evidence against you.  Do not think that you can handle the situation by explaining your side of the story.  Instead, let Mathias G. Chaplin represent you with the authorities and fight to defend your freedom.

YOU ARE INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY

Many people who have been charged with a crime make one major mistake: they give up on the case.  Because there is evidence that indicates their guilt, they decide that there is no hope of beating the charges.  The fact is that you can always fight criminal charges and you can frequently win.  For example, if you were arrested for possession of drugs, an attorney may be able to have the charges dropped by demonstrating that your Fourth Amendment right was violated by a vehicle search without a warrant or probable cause.  Another thing to consider is that, while there may be some evidence against you, there may not be enough evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you committed the crime.  You are innocent until proven guilty, and the team at our firm is ready to help you exercise your rights in the case.
