If you or a loved one is facing criminal charges, it’s enormously important that your defense be handled by an experienced team. The American criminal justice system can be highly complicated, and a mistake can have far-reaching implications. However, if you or your loved one has been arrested for a crime and you’re a foreign national, the situation can become even more difficult.

Consider that, if you’re in police custody and aren’t careful with your words while speaking to investigators, you don’t just have to worry about accidentally losing the opportunity to effectively fight the charges — you could also lose your right to remain in the United States and face deportation proceedings.
