A criminal conviction may carry significant penalties and have long term consequences. In all criminal cases, you have certain rights that can be exercised. Self-representation should never be considered when facing a criminal charge.
How can a criminal charge be defended?
All criminal charges have certain legal elements. Each element must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. If there is insufficient evidence to meet this standard, then you should be found not guilty and the case dismissed. To determine whether this standard may be met and whether there are any defenses to the charges, you should contact an attorney.
There may be evidence available to challenge the charges and raise doubt. There may also be remedies available if your rights were violated during the case. Identifying the evidence that may be useful is not always easy, so you may benefit from consulting with an attorney. An attorney can also help identify possible areas where your rights were violated.

If you are a non-citizen facing criminal charges it is crucial that you meet with an immigration attorney to discuss all applicable immigration consequences. We are equipped to handle not only your criminal case but explain the immigration consequences. We have also worked alongside fellow criminal attorneys to explain and discuss possible alternatives for their clients who are non-citizens. We offer assistance that is designed to prevent a client from facing deportation or inadmissibility issues.
There are a number of regulations that must be followed by all permanent residents or immigrants living in the United States and failure to follow these laws can lead to serious consequences. If you are a non-citizen a guilty plea can affect your ability to become a citizen of the United States, renew your DACA status, renewal of a green card and even your ability to re-enter the United States after travel abroad.
Legal issues pertaining to immigration laws are both serious and delicate matters.
