"Friends… Don't Let Friends Plead Guilty"



Know your legal rights

If you are facing charges, it's important that you know what rights you have. If you are a suspect in any crime or DUI, the objective of police is to find as much evidence as possible to use against you. Don't help them build their case against you, instead call Frederick J. Taylor Law Offices.
