Tourists

It is bad enough to be arrested, but it is doubly traumatic for tourists. Whether you came to South Florida for business or pleasure, being arrested certainly was not something you or your family anticipated. In addition to the obvious logistical complications of being detained in a strange city, state or country, being forced to hire a defense attorney in an unfamiliar place only adds to the stress. We understand your situation and can help you resolve your case—oftentimes, without you having to return to Miami for future court hearings.

Students

Whether they are high school, college or graduate students, all have unique concerns when facing criminal charges. Just being arrested can trigger a school disciplinary proceeding, affect the chances of admission to other schools and negatively impact future employment. A criminal conviction can also make you ineligible for student loans. You should take immediate steps to protect your rights and future career by retaining an experienced crime lawyer to defend you.

Non-US Citizens

Non-United States Citizens have unique concerns when they are arrested or prosecuted for crimes. Therefore, it’s extremely important to hire a Miami criminal defense lawyer who understands criminal defense law and how criminal offenses can adversely affect a client’s immigration status. A disposition that may be perfectly acceptable for a U.S. citizen in domestic violence, drug crimes or petit theft cases may have dire consequences for a non-U.S. Citizen.

Possible Consequences of a Criminal Conviction

When you are arrested, you suddenly find yourself thrust into an unfamiliar world and subjected to indignities you never thought you would experience. The trauma of being criminally investigated or arrested and booked into a filthy, overcrowded jail can truly be overwhelming. The anxiety from not knowing how your criminal case can affect your job, family, and reputation, can be paralyzing

A conviction can also impact your ability to live where you want or rent an apartment. If you are not a U.S. citizen, being convicted of a crime can even get you deported. With so much at stake, you must choose the right Miami criminal lawyer team to defend you.
