Q. hello i am looking for a great attorney to help with a case i am fighting?
A: Hi. You definitely want to talk to a criminal defense lawyer in your area. That lawyer will help you to figure out whether the police search in your home was lawful. For example, did the police have a search warrant to enter your home? Or, were you on probation with search terms? There are a lot of issues to explore which may help you to get your case reduced or dismissed.

A: The options provided by attorney James Arrasmith are correct. I agree with them.
