Any misdemeanor or felony charge carries some sort of punishment, whether it is probation, jail, community service or monetary fines. It is not only important to know exactly what kind of charges you face, but also the possible penalties involved.
In addition, criminal charges have detrimental effects beyond the court system. For many immigration and nonimmigrants, criminal charges could mean denial of a visa, green card, citizenship. In the most serious situations, criminal charges can result in permanent deportation.
The attorneys at Skinner Law Firm are dedicated to criminal and immigration defense. A criminal record can have devastating results that affect employment, school and other opportunities.
Zealous advocacy means not only protecting the rights of clients in the criminal justice system, but looking beyond in consideration of other complications, including possible immigration consequences.
