Legal Services For Immigrants Accused Of Criminal Offenses
Nothing derails an application for residency or U.S. citizenship faster than criminal charges. Even if you are not convicted, simply being charged with a felony or even a misdemeanor can lead to much greater scrutiny of other parts of your life, fairly or not. It is crucial to face the charges against you or your loved one with experienced legal counsel on your side.
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.
At The Law Offices of John M. Runfola, we help criminal defendants tell their side of the story on their day in court. We have been serving immigrants and other California residents for more than three decades. We research your case thoroughly and work hard to help ensure that the charges against you impact your life and your immigration status as little as possible.
