Attorney Ivan Morse's Methods

When he is contacted by someone who has been arrested and accused of committing a crime, the first thing Ivan does is have the person provide a detailed chronology of the events leading up to the arrest while it is fresh in their mind. People have a tendency to forget details and Ivan wants to know exactly what transpired just prior to, during and after an arrest. For example, why did the police say they stopped you; was your window up or down when the police approached; what was the first thing the police said to you; what did you say to the police; what tests did they have you perform; were you told you did not have to perform these tests, etc., etc.

Ivan's focus usually begins with whether the person's 4th Amendment rights were violated, that is, the right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures and the right to be secure from unwarranted intrusions. Then he examines your case for other possible violations, including your 5th Amendment rights (Miranda Rights), 8th Amendment rights (right to reasonable bail), 1st Amendment rights (freedom of speech), etc. etc.
