A California Immigration Lawyer Who Stands Up For Your Rights
Immigration is complicated enough even without the added stress of criminal charges. Immigrants are often held to a higher legal standard than native-born U.S. citizens, and minor legal violations can cause significant problems in your daily life as well as for your long-term residency plans.
At The Law Offices of John M. Runfola, we are committed to helping immigrants legally live and work in the country and the community they have chosen to call home. If your immigration paperwork is questioned, we can help you navigate the law and avoid or respond to charges of immigration fraud. We will also defend you against other criminal charges. We have been serving residents of California for more than 40 years, and we have worked hard to earn our reputation for success.
A Wide Range Of Criminal Defense Services For Immigrants
The Law Offices of John M. Runfola provides strong criminal defense services to immigrants charged with a wide range of offenses, including:
- Immigration fraud: Applying for residency or citizenship is a long and complicated process with many of opportunities to make mistakes, and also the temptation to take shortcuts to secure a green card or other residency documents more quickly. If you’ve been accused of committing immigration fraud, we can help you mount a defense by clarifying your relationship with your spouse or employer.
- Other crimes: Being charged with any crime while your immigration status is in flux can jeopardize your ability to remain in the U.S. Just as importantly, it can lead to your being detained and possibly deported. We will help you secure a bond to stay out of jail while defending yourself in court.
