Aggressive Defense Of Felony And Misdemeanor Criminal Charges

It’s easy to become overwhelmed after being charged with a criminal offense. While many people believe they can handle the situation on their own, this is not a good idea.

How Criminal Charges Impact Your Life

If you are convicted of a criminal charge, you are facing a range of consequences. From the dismissal of charges and probation, to large monetary fines and extended jail time, punishments can be severe. Our firm is committed to defending our clients to the fullest extent of the law, seeking a dismissal of the case, a plea bargain or aggressively defending the case in front of a judge and jury.

If you are facing a criminal case, it is important to know it can affect your immigration status. In some cases, someone who is convicted of a criminal charge may be subject to deportation or other immigration sanctions. Our firm is fluent in the language of the immigration laws and can help you understand how your immigration case may be affected by a criminal matter.
