Any person who finds themselves in the unfortunate situation of being accused of a crime must remember certain things. Regardless of the charges or the statements of prosecutors, police, or the media, the accused has certain Constitutional rights. He or she has the right to be presumed innocent of the charge unless and until they are convicted. They have a right to have the government prove their guilt beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law. And they have the right to have an attorney represent them and to challenge the accusations. These are cherished rights that the founders of the United States enshrined in our Constitution. Knowing how and when to invoke them is critical in defending any criminal case irrespective of how strong it may seem. John Buza steadfastly believes in these rights and has dedicated his practice to ensuring that they persevere and that they are invoked on behalf of his clients. Mr. Buza had an amazing track record in ensuring the rights of his clients are protected. 

Having handled just about every kind of case as both a prosecutor and a criminal defense attorney, Mr. Buza has tremendous experience as well as the knowledge necessary to help those who have been arrested, those who want to fight their case, or those who are the target of an investigation and who want to avoid being charged in the first place.
