Miranda Rights

  • The right to remain silent
  • The right to an attorney

You have rights after an arrest, and those rights are found in the U.S. Constitution:

  • The right to remain silent: You have the right to remain silent and avoid incriminating yourself. Anything you say can be used against you in court.
  • The right to an attorney: You have the right to an attorney, and if you cannot afford one, an attorney will be appointed to you.
  • The right to know the charges: You have the right to know the charges against you and the evidence the authorities have against you.
  • The right to a speedy trial: You have the right to a speedy trial, which means that you should be brought to trial within a reasonable time after your arrest.
  • The right to confront witnesses: You have the right to confront the witnesses against you and cross-examine them in court.
  • The right to bail: In most cases, you have the right to be released on bail, which is money you pay to the court to ensure that you appear for future court dates.

A conviction has the potential to change your life forever. Consequences could include jail, a lengthy prison sentence, fines, probation, and collateral consequences. Don't let a criminal conviction disrupt your life. By contacting Attorney Tomas, you can be sure that your case and your future is in good hands.

​Understanding Your Options

You can discuss the details of your case with an attorney from the firm during a free consultation. During this time, they will be looking for anypertinent information they can use to build a compelling case, in addition to answering the questions you may have. There are many tactics that a lawyer from the firm can employ when seeking to protect you against a conviction. One of the first steps will involve doing an investigation. This can often turn up valuable resources that they can add to your defense.

Attorney Tomas' Qualifications:

  • State & Federal court experience
  • 10+ Years of legal experience
  • Super Lawyers® Rising Stars℠
  • 10 out of 10 “Superb” Rated on Avvo

In many cases, defense attorneys challenge the evidence or how it was obtained in hopes of getting the case dismissed or the charges reduced. If it is not possible to get your case dismissed, you may be facing the option of accepting or rejecting a plea deal or "plea bargain." Essentially, you would agree to plead guilty in exchange for a reduced charge/sentence.

A private defense attorney will have your best interests in mind. Many people, for financial or other reasons, opt to be represented by a public defender. We strongly advise against this. Public defenders have a caseload that is far too big for them to handle, so they have minimal time to give your case the attention it deserves. Attorney Tomas provides one-on-one, individualized representation at an affordable cost, which could make the difference in your case.

What People Are Saying About The Firm

"I was being accused of a horrible crime and the state was trying to send me to prison and have me deported. Tony was very aggressive in fighting my case and at the end, the state finally dismissed the charges. I will be forever grateful to him."

"I was facing 15 years in prison. After the public defender didn't do anything for me, I decided to hire him. Thank GOD I did. The state dropped the charges. If you are ever in trouble, do yourself a favor and hire this man!"

"I thought my husband was going to go to jail and there was nothing he could do about it. My husband's previous lawyer wanted him to plead guilty and serve 5 years in jail and told me that it was the best deal we would get. I hired Tony and he got the case dismissed!"
