Is the evidence in your criminal case actually coming from NSA? Quoted throughout this investigative report by Human Rights Watch, Attorney Jessica Carmichael, discusses the U.S. intelligence community's surveillance as it relates to law enforcement and parallel construction.
"Carmichael, one of the defense attorneys in Collins, told Human Rights Watch that parallel construction 'flies in the face of everything that our justice system stands for' and is 'legally and as a matter of principle a huge problem. We have in our country a Fourth Amendment and Fourth Amendment rights … That’s a bedrock principle of our system. Essentially, this practice is an attempt to circumvent that.'"
hrw.org This report documents the use of alternative explanations for how evidence was found, a practice known as “parallel construction.” This practice could prevent courts from scrutinizing the legality of questionable investigative methods, including surveillance.

"I trust my life/freedom in Mrs. Harris hands."
"Since I've been home from prison I've found my self in the wildest situations. Twice I've been arrested and charged for crimes I didn't commit or know anything about, and on one occasion I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. With that being said I contacted Pheonix Harris. Since the very first consultation she's been there every step of the way providing excellent service. Beating every single case that came my way. Once your in the system it's hard to get out and stay out of trouble even if your walking the straight and narrow trouble some times finds you. I can honestly say I trust my life/freedom in Mrs. Harris hands."
