Unlawful Searches and Seizures

Unlawful searches and seizures are a direct violation of your constitutional rights. The Fourth Amendment grants every United States citizen the right to be free from warrantless searches and seizures. Your privacy is your constitutional right.

Cases involving unlawful searches usually arise from warrantless searches of a vehicle, a home, your person, or other property. With few exceptions, any personal property not in plain view cannot be searched without a warrant or probable cause.

Unlawful seizures involve law enforcement officials confiscating or obtaining any of your property found during an unlawful search.

If you are in legal trouble resulting from an unlawful search or seizure, your constitutional rights may have been violated. Unlawful search and seizure lawsuits can be difficult to win because what is considered “unlawful” depends on the facts of each case. Nevertheless, the team at Kulis Law will ensure that your case is thoroughly analyzed and reviewed in order to obtain the justice and compensation you deserve.
