Search and Seizure
Illegal Search and Seizure
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched or the persons or things to be seized. – 4th Amendment U.S. Constitution
This short paragraph has resulted in countless case dismissals and Not Guilty verdicts. Failure to properly invoke the Fourth Amendment has resulted in thousands of people each year to be convicted of crimes unnecessarily. Only an experienced Search and Seizure attorney knows how to win your case under the Fourth Amendment law. Allan Rombro has been successfully defending people victimized by illegal search and seizures for nearly thirty years.
The Fourth Amendment protects you against what is known as unreasonable search and seizure. This prohibits law enforcement from conducting an unreasonable search of your home , your property or your person. When the police conduct an investigation that includes a search, they must adhere to the law. In fact, many police officers fail to follow this law and the result is thousands of people every year are convicted of crimes because they did not have a qualified Fourth Amendment attorney who was able to have the case dismissed on technical arguments based on the illegal search and seizure laws that protect you. Too often, evidence is obtained illegally. This evidence will be used to convict you of a serious crime from drug distribution to sex offenses.
You do not have to consent to a search and refusing to consent does not imply guilt. If the police do search your home, property or person and collect evidence, Allan Rombro will seek to have that evidence thrown out through suppression of evidence. Getting any and all evidence suppressed is possible if the search and seizure is illegal and very often, such cases are won on that very issue. Allan Rombro knows how to investigate and build this case. Do not become one of the thousands of people every year convicted of a crime where police conducted an unreasonable search and seizure.
Allan Rombro has successfully defended Marylanders in illegal search and seizure cases for nearly thirty years. He knows how to attack the State’s case and undermine its merit by showing that law enforcement failed to follow the law and therefore violated Fourth Amendment rights. When this occurs, Allan Rombro can often have the case dismissed before it ever reaches a courtroom. In other cases, using his knowledge and skill, he will convince a Judge or jury that your rights were violated and this requires them to return a verdict of Not Guilty.
If you face charges of drug distribution, distributing child pornography, violent crime or handgun violations, and the police have conducted or tried to conduct a search of your home, property or person, call or email me immediately. Allan@RombroLegal.com or 410-580-9500
December 2014 Testimonial
I was renting a basement apartment to be near my kids. I have worked for Baltimore City for fifteen years. The police came and raided my place and arrested me after they found paraphernalia and a small amount of cocaine. I was scared to say the least because if I was convicted, I would definitely lose my job and benefits. Mr Rombro told me he thought the warrant was bad and we might win with a supresion hearing. We went and the judge thew the whole case out. I was gearing up for a trial and whatever happened and it was over before any of that. I know the reason I am free today and have my job is because I hired Allan. –Jerome W. Baltimore County
