What Is Illegal Search And Seizure?

Those accused of crimes may be convicted because of evidence illegally found in their homes, car or other personal property. If you believe your Fourth Amendment Constitutional rights were violated when police entered your home or searched your car for evidence, contact Buting, Williams & Stilling, S.C., to schedule a free appointment to discuss your case.

For more than 25 years, our attorneys have been challenging evidence collected through illegal searches and seizures related to:

Not All Warrants Are Valid

Police are usually required to obtain a search warrant before searching private property and seizing criminal evidence. Some warrants, however, are invalid because of false or incomplete information.

At Buting, Williams & Stilling, S.C. , we recognize when a warrant is invalid by comparing it to what is necessary for satisfaction of the warrant requirement. We investigate how the warrant was granted. If we believe the warrant was granted based on false police testimony or the warrant was invalid because it lacked necessary information, we will file a motion to suppress the evidence against our clients.

One Warrant, One Search

Some illegal search and seizure cases we handle involve police and investigators searching a home or property more than once under the same warrant. If the police searched your property multiple times, but failed to receive a second or third warrant, do not hesitate to contact our offices and speak with an experienced lawyer. We will act quickly to protect your Fourth Amendment rights.

If you face criminal charges and believe the evidence against you was illegally gathered, contact Buting, Williams & Stilling, S.C., in Brookfield and Glendale, Wisconsin, to schedule a free consultation with an experienced lawyer.
