A common question that we get is, well, if the officer didn’t read me my Miranda rights, then the case has to be dismissed. This, unfortunately, is not true. Miranda only applies when an officer intends to take a statement from someone who is already in custody. If the officer doesn’t plan on taking a statement, then there will never be a requirement that he or she read you your Miranda rights.

When people are facing difficult legal situations what matters is results. At The Matera Law Firm, we have over 25 years of experience helping people when they need it most. That commitment has allowed us to generate a record of success and positive results against criminal charges.
