Search and Seizure Protection in Boston

Protection of your constitutional rights has become increasingly important. Ensuring that your 4th Amendment right has not been violated during a traffic stop or police visit to your home can be paramount to a defense of criminal charges.

The 4th Amendment provides protection of privacy, limiting the ability of police to search your person, clothing, vehicle or residence for evidence of a suspected crime. The Massachusetts Constitution provides even greater protection of your privacy rights than the Federal Constitution. Article 14 of The Massachusetts Declaration of rights goes beyond the 4th Amendment by constraining further police action in cases such as vehicle exit order, pat frisks, traffic stops, search warrants, and dog sniffs.
