police line do not cross“The right to be heard would be, in many cases, of little avail if it did not comprehend the right to be heard by counsel.  Even the intelligent and educated layman has small and sometimes no skill in the science of law.  If charged with crime, he is incapable, generally, of determining for himself whether the indictment is good or bad.  He is unfamiliar with the rules of evidence.  Left without the aid of counsel, he may be put on trial without a proper charge, and convicted upon incompetent evidence, or evidence irrelevant to the issue or otherwise inadmissible.  He lacks both the skill and knowledge adequately to prepare his defense, even though he have a perfect one.  He requires the guiding hand of counsel at every step in the proceedings against him.  Without it, though he be not guilty, he faces the danger of conviction because he does not know how to establish his innocence.”  Powell v. Alabama, 287 U.S. 45, 68-69 (1932).

Police Officer Arresting Young ManThe Law Office of Kenneth C. Vale was founded on the principle that individuals accused of crimes have inalienable fundamental constitutional rights.  In addition to the presumption of innocence, everyone accused of a crime has the right to the effective assistance of counsel — “the guiding hand of counsel” — at every stage of the proceedings against them.  The accused should demand an attorney who will fight for them.  The accused should demand Kenneth C. Vale.  He fights hard for his clients. He gets excellent results.  Consistently.
