The playing field

We count on law enforcement to protect our rights and safety.  For most people, the police represent a lifetime of security with only the occasional interaction along the way, if any at all.  But when the tables turn and we find ourselves suspected of a crime, the law officers may employ nearly any measure to get the information they need, whether it infringes on our rights or not.  The police know the law better than the average person does, and they can easily use it against us.  The unrepresented person has little bargaining power and no expertise in their own defense.

This disparity makes an unleveled playing field. At the Law Office of Kirk Piccione, we can help you level that playing field.
