Protecting Your Rights

Your rights deserve to be protected and your side of the story deserves to be heard.

As a former prosecutor, Stephen M. Bernhardt understands that the arrest report typically tells a very small percentage of the story and is often exaggerated by emotional witnesses.

More often, the police report leaves out important details that were not disclosed, or the information reported was deemed unimportant by the officers on-scene. This can lead to arrests even if someone did not commit the crime for which they were charged.

At Bernhardt Riley, your case will be thoroughly defended, as we take pride in evaluating the details. This includes visiting the scene of the alleged crime ourselves, taking the deposition of all potential witnesses, and doing anything else reasonably necessary to ensure your rights are protected.
