Criminal Law Services
We assist individuals with various criminal charges, such as driving under the influence, drug use, and domestic violence. We assist individuals with post-conviction relief, which may allow a conviction to be reduced, expunged, or vacated.
When an individual is first arrested and charges are brought against them, the case goes to the pretrial phase. The pretrial phase refers to court appearances, a variety of motions, discovery, and plea bargains or negotiations that take place before a trial. The pretrial phase may last a short time or it could continue for months. The purpose of pretrial is to allow the prosecution and defense to discuss the strengths and weaknesses in a case and negotiate. In California, most criminal cases are resolved during the pretrial phase.
We understand that a criminal conviction can impact an individual’s life and immigration status. We assist individuals with post-conviction relief, which may allow a conviction to be reduced, expunged, or vacated.
Charges and/or convictions that may affect an individual’s immigration status include:
