FBI Search Warrant Criminal Defense Attorney
Our Texas white collar criminal defense lawyers know the law
The Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) often arrests people based on evidence obtained during a search conducted under the authority of an FBI search warrant. Such a search might seem straightforward on the surface.
The reality is that law enforcement officials must follow very strict guidelines when obtaining such a search warrant and during the search itself. Otherwise, the evidence obtained during a search should be deemed inadmissible in court.
Our experienced white collar criminal defense attorneys at the law firm of Brewer, Pritchard & Buckley, PC thoroughly understand the rules and regulations governing FBI search warrants. That’s because our lawyers have more than 90 years of combined legal experience. We know the law and know what’s allowed and what’s not. That’s why we want to meet with you.
What you need to know about FBI search warrants and your rights
The Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution explains the circumstances under which a search warrant can be obtained and executed by law. Specifically, federal law states that:
- Law enforcement officials must have probable cause to obtain a search warrant and conduct a search.
- The search warrant must specifically state exactly where the search can be conducted.
- The search warrant must specifically state what law enforcement officials are searching for on the premises.
- The search warrant must specifically state what law enforcement officials can take as part of the search.
- Law enforcement officials cannot take anything they are not authorized to search for on the premises.
If FBI agents or anyone else violates these rules or any other part of the search warrant, the entire FBI search should be deemed illegal. That’s why it’s critical that you talk with an experienced white collar criminal defense lawyer right away. We can investigate whether the search conducted under the authority of an FBI search warrant was legal or whether it broke the law.
