By Your Side Legal Services (BYSLS), the first company to offer legal representation during encounters with law enforcement, announces their crowdfunding campaign at https://igg.me/at/BYSL.

The money raised will be used to build an application that connects its clients with lawyers during interactions with law enforcement and to market their services.

When BYSLS clients see the blue lights in their rear view mirror or they are stopped by a police officer on the street, they will activate the BYSLS application. The application will connect them immediately with a lawyer who will represent them during the encounter. When the officer approaches s BYSLS client, the client will hand the officer a BYSLS membership card.

The membership card will inform the officer that the client is not going to answer any questions and will remain silent based on their rights granted by the 5th amendment and that the client will not consent to a search of their person, vehicle or passengers. The card also informs the police officer that an attorney is on the phone and will speak on their behalf. The lawyer will then speak to the officer on the client’s behalf and provide representation until the conclusion of the encounter.

Citizens are often unsure of their rights and are under the impression that they are obligated to answer police officers questions. The framers of our constitution provided protections for citizens from over aggressive police action including:

4th amendment that provides protection from unreasonable searches and seizures

5th amendment that provides the right to remain silent

6th amendment provides the right to be represented by counsel in criminal proceedings

Unfortunately, these protections are often thrown away by citizens due to their not understanding their rights and being afraid of the police. Legal representation during encounters with law enforcement will help citizens avoid being bullied into answering law enforcement's’ questions and consenting to their searches. This will provide the security of knowing they will not have to face an armed law enforcement officer without legal representation.

BYSLS’ goal is to offer their services in all 50 states within 18 months. These services will cost $24.95 a month or about .89 cents a day, less than the cost of small order MacDonald's French fries.

CEO/Founder By Your Side Legal Services Austin Jambor says,“I am asking you to help me make this vision a reality by going to https://igg.me/at/BYSL and donating $10 or $5 or even $1 to make legal representation at first point of contact with law enforcement affordable for all.”
