If you or a loved one is facing criminal charges and is also an immigrant, then it’s enormously important that your defense is handled by an experienced team. The American criminal justice system is 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, then you have more to worry about than accidentally losing the opportunity to effectively fight the charges. Without effective counsel, immigrants also run the risk of losing their right to remain in the United States and facing deportation proceedings.
