The Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, adopted in 1791, was designed and intended to ensure that the government can only interfere with persons in the United States under specific circumstances and with prescribed methods. The case law under the Fourth Amendment, through 250 U.S. Supreme Court cases and hundreds of thousands of lower court decisions, has become hopelessly confusing with exceptions and exceptions to exceptions. The Fourth Amendment has become so complicated that even criminal defense lawyers dealing with it every day can no longer reasonably be expected to know everything about it.

John Wesley Hall is a former state prosecutor, active practitioner, and Fourth Amendment scholar who has handled thousands of criminal cases and hundreds of appeals for his clients. Contact him today to arrange an initial consultation.
