It is virtually impossible for the average person to maintain a good understanding of their legal rights in every given situation. Police training programs spend months teaching their future officers about the law, and even they need to look up certain statutes from time to time. Knowing your legal rights, as a situation unfolds, is often crucial to protecting your interests. This section will include tips about how to proceed in certain situations in order to protect and maximize your rights.
It is important to always keep in mind that laws vary by state and are subject to change. The information supplied in this section, while as accurate as possible, is not infallible.
