Why Should You Invoke Your Miranda Rights?

On Behalf of The Foley Law Firm | August 24, 2021

2 Ways You Could Unknowingly Commit a Felony Crime

On Behalf of The Foley Law Firm | August 3, 2018
Ignorance of the law isn't a defense. If it were, we could ignore all laws and -- after getting arrested and accused of a crime -- achieve a verdict of not guilty simply by claiming that we didn't realize we were doing anything wrong.
