Kentucky’s favorite criminal defense attorney, Steve Romines, spent his night with Matt Jones on Hey Kentucky!  In addition to the usual discussion of today’s topics from around Kentucky, Romines answers some interesting legal questions in the segment “Ask A Lawyer,” including what to do if you get pulled over by a police officer. If you want to get more detail, then visit site. Criminal defense lawyers sometime get a not-so-flattering portrayal because people assume that they defend guilty people. However, if you are a defendant in a criminal proceeding, you need the assistance of a qualified criminal defense lawyer, regardless of your guilt or innocence. As the protectors and advocates of the accused, defense lawyers play a pivotal role in the United States justice system to see that everyone charged with a criminal act has an opportunity to defend themselves. All these rights are guaranteed by the United States Constitution and are applicable to all states through the Fourteenth Amendment as well as United States Supreme Court case opinions. As such, a criminal defense lawyer is obligated to provide clients with protection against the overreach of the government in meting out punishment to any individual accused of a criminal offense. An experienced, qualified lawyer accomplishes this by challenging any government or law enforcement conduct that violates the rights of any United States citizen accused of a crime. Should a criminal defense lawyer fail to make reasonable efforts to protect your rights or provide effective assistance, he/she risks losing his/her license to practice law or other penalties (some of which could include jail time).

If a person had been arrested and he is facing a trial, he must have an effective and knowledgeable criminal defense lawyer at his back. During those instances that you are subject to a criminal case, you must be aware of your rights and all the necessary details that are related to the case. Now, if the person faces a criminal case, the first thing that he need to do is to get a defense attorney for your defense and in order for you to have a person who can answer all of your questions. There are so many things that your defense attorney can teach you regarding the case that you may not be aware. If you are in need of a defense attorney you can visit Las Vegas, NV 89128, USA for the best attorney for wherever city or state you want the service.

Don’t miss the entire episode after the jump.

In order for you to have a strong defense, it is a must that your defense attorney orients you about relevant laws and their relevance to your case so that you will know how to behave yourself in the course of the trial. It is a must that you follow procedures and court rules. The defense lawyer that you will hire must be strong enough to know the details of the proceedings, or even when there are necessary deadlines that must be accomplished-like a paper work for evidence, testimonials etc. Also in relation to evidences, your defense attorney can also challenge any evidence presented by the prosecution. He can challenge how such evidence came into the proceedings, how it was handled stored or obtained.

    So a cop pulls you over and asks you anything, you’re supposed to say, “I want a lawyer”?

    “Do you know how fast you were going?” “I want a lawyer.”
    “Do you know what the speed limit is?” “I want a lawyer.”
    “Why did you brake when you saw me?” “I want a lawyer.”
    “Where are you going?” “I want a lawyer.”
    “May I see your driver’s license and registration?” “I want a lawyer.”
    “How are you doing tonight?” “Is this a Mendenhall stop or a Terry-type seizure? In other words, am I free to go? If so, have a nice evening. If not, I want a lawyer.”

    One of the great truths in life is that if it weren’t for lawyers, we wouldn’t need lawyers.

    The “I want a lawyer” advice has got to be the worst legal advice I’ve ever heard. Officer asks you for your license and you only respond with “I want a lawyer” and refuse to hand over your license or communicate with the officer enough that he can determine who you are, you’ll be charged with whatever you were stopped for and it’s nearly certain you’ll be arrested as well. If a cop can’t determine who you are and you refuse to identify yourself, you’ll probably have to sit in jail until you’re tired of going by John/Jane Doe. Much better option would be to just act like you have a little sense and use your words. A verbal warning or ticket always sounded like a lot better option to me than a night in jail and a tow bill. When I think about it though, Steve Romines is a criminal defense attorney. You know, the people who spend their careers trying to keep rapists, burglars, murderers, kid raping pedophiles, and drug dealers out of jail.

    Steve Romines makes his living off of suing police. Attorneys like that are so anti-police that they have convinced themselves that the prisons are full of innocent citizens.

    Romines gives poor advice in this clip. It is because if people like that, who spew the “don’t trust police” and “don’t talk to police,” who have caused this divide between law enforcement and the people. Mr. Romines makes his living off of the back of criminals.

    Gees Matt. If you’re going to have an attorney on here, at least get a prosecutor, or someone from the Innocence Project–someone who actually contributes to society.

    I harken back to the time when this site was all about UK sports, not the left wing agenda.
