Our office represents clients in all types of state and federal criminal cases, including serious drug offenses. Additionally, as the fields of criminal and immigration law are often intertwined for non-citizens, our expertise in immigration law allows us to make certain that the client’s immigration rights are non jeopardized because of their criminal cases. Important things to remember about criminal cases:
- Under the Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution, you have the right to remain silent if you are the subject of a criminal arrest. Exercise this right! You should never speak, or give a statement, to a police officer if you are the subject of a criminal investigation, regardless of what the police tell you about the purpose of their questioning.
- It is important to make a note of the names of all the witnesses that may have knowledge about your case. Also, make sure to note the surroundings and other evidence that may help your case. Remember that witnesses move. Therefore, you must provide us with the names of any potential witnesses as soon as possible so that we can find them and properly investigate your case.
