In our personal and professional lives, the Bill of Rights to the United States Constitution applies and guarantees us specific rights as citizens of our nation.
THESE RIGHTS INCLUDE THE:
- Freedom of speech
- Freedom of assembly
- Freedom of religion
- Freedom from a search without probable cause
- Freedom from a false arrest or a seizure without probable cause
- Freedom from malicious prosecution
- Freedom from excessive force
- Freedom from the deprivation of life, liberty, or property without due process, and
- Freedom of equal protection under the law
Although we share these rights and freedoms as citizens, the law pertaining to them is complex and highly technical and, as is often the case, dependent upon the specific facts and circumstances of a particular situation. For example, a person possesses a right to freedom of speech, but critical limitations to the right may exist simply depending upon factors such as the location and time of the speech or whether the speech occurred during employment. As another example, a person may be pulled over and arrested while speeding, but that may not necessarily support probable cause for the police to then search the person’s home. The complexities of the legal issues pertaining to our essential freedoms and rights have evolved over centuries. Attempting to research and tackle these issues alone or without the right attorney is daunting and not necessarily advisable.
