I am a English/Spanish speaking criminal defense and immigation attorney that always fights for my clients, whether its through defending my client's rights through suppression motions or the right to be tried by a jury or the right to be sentenced fairly--I'm relentless. I won't let you plead to a charge that is going to make you deportable or inadmissible--you got to fight your case or face deporation. Hiring an immigration attorney after you are on probation is worthless and a waste of money; tackle the issues in criminal court in order to get the best result.
I'm not one of the actors you see on tv; I don't yell at the judges or have fits with the DAs to get what my client needs; I have a reputation to uphold and at the end of the day, that carries a lot of weight with judges and prosecutors. I've mastered camoflouging, spinning and diluting the bad facts from every type of case--facts don't disappear, so I present them in a different light. Don't take my word--please check out the prior cases I have handled. I recommend you review cases of all the attorneys you consider employing.
Call my office for a consultation. May you have a blessed 2009.
