Union County Criminal Defense Attorneys
People are accused of criminal misconduct on a daily basis in Union County and are often facing extremely serious criminal penalties. If convicted, you could face:
- Community service
- Jail time
These court-imposed penalties are only some of the potential consequences of a criminal conviction. Individuals with a criminal record often have difficulty getting a job, getting into a particular school, joining the military, obtaining a state-issued professional license, or even renting an apartment. As a result, it is critical for anyone who is facing allegations of criminal misconduct in New Jersey to speak with an experienced Union County criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. In many cases, the assistance of a lawyer can help mitigate the long-term consequences of a criminal case, and may even result in the case being completely dropped or dismissed.
Union County Immigration Defense
People who are foreign nationals face additional immigration penalties as a result of alleged criminal misconduct, so it is extraordinarily important for them to retain an experienced attorney familiar with the way that criminal law and immigration law interact. Offenses that could potentially result in deportation include the following:
- Drug offenses
- Domestic violence
- Violent crimes
- Sex offenses
- Firearms offenses
Importantly, there are issues in immigration law that many criminal defense attorneys may be unfamiliar with, and legal strategies that may make sense for citizens could potentially have disastrous results for foreign nationals. For example, many plea bargain agreements result in a deferred adjudication, meaning that if the defendant successfully completes the terms of probation, the case will be dismissed and no conviction will be entered. Federal immigration law may still treat this situation as a conviction, however, meaning that taking this type of agreement may result in significant immigration penalties for foreign nationals.
