Early involvement in a case is essential in being able to direct the case to achieve the best outcome and protect your rights. In the meantime, PLEASE UNDERSTAND THE PURPOSE OF MIRANDA WARNINGS given by the police and when they are required. The police are required to advise a person of Miranda Warnings when they are in custody or subject to custodial interrogation.  If given before interrogation, the defendant's statements will later be admissible in court. A Miranda Warning is a prophylactic or protective criminal procedure rule that law enforcement is required to administer in order to protect an individual who is in custody and subject to direct questioning or its functional equivalent from a violation of his or her Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination and the Sixth Amendment right to Counsel. If you waive this right, which you should never do under any set of circumstances, then anything you say can and will be used against you in court. Many times the police will tell you that if you help them, then they will help you. You need to understand the reason the police want you to talk. They want you to incriminate yourself so that they can build a case against you. All questions and performance tests utilized by the police are designed for this singular purpose. Remember, DO NOT WAIVE your rights and contact our office right away.

Once cases are dismissed and for certain types of convictions, Mr. Baity will discuss with you options for an expunction of your record. At Baity Law, we understand the importance of maintaining a clean record for personal reputation, school and employment.

A wrongful death case can only be filed by the executor, administrator or personal representative of the deceased person's estate on behalf of the surviving spouse, children or parents. If none of these survive, then a sibling may participate in the recovery through the estate. The purpose of a wrongful death suit is to provide relief to family members who have been injured emotionally and financially as a result of the family member's death. We must show that the death of a person was caused by a wrongful act, neglect or default; secondly, the act, neglect or default would have entitled the injured person to file an action to recover damages had the death not occurred; and finally that monetary damages have resulted from the decedent's death.

In all matters involving injury and death it is essential that action be taken quickly to preserve evidence, investigate the accident, and to ensure that the lawsuit is filed within the appropriate statute of limitations.

The initial consultation is free and if we accept your case, we will work on a contingency fee agreement, which means we get paid for our services only if there is a monetary award or recovery of funds.
