Fourth Amendment

Generally, this amendment protects society from unreasonable searches and seizures of their persons and property at the hands of the government.  Any warrantless search or seizure must be supported by adequate suspicion of criminal activity, otherwise evidence found as a result thereof will be held inadmissible in court.

Historically, the attorneys of Bradshaw & O’Connor have been successful in their efforts to suppress incriminating evidence located on their clients’ persons, as well as in their homes and automobiles.  This is particularly true in cases involving narcotics and weapons possession.  If the police have violated your Fourth Amendment rights with an unlawful search that you didn’t consent to, a motion to suppress the evidence discovered may be appropriate in your case.
