Helping Immigrants Facing Criminal Charges

Immigrants charged with crimes face particularly severe consequences should they be eventually convicted of an offense. In addition to any penalties handed down by California or federal authorities, immigrants could also be facing removal if the crimes are severe enough to lead to deportation. Many times, the best way to avoid the most draconian immigration consequences is by strategic handling of the criminal case before conviction.

At Berke Law Offices, Inc., our lawyers focus much of our attention on the interplay between criminal defense and immigration law matters. We pride ourselves on making the impossible possible: That is helping you remain here in the U.S. when all hope seems lost. Even if other attorneys have turned your case down, we would be glad to review your case to see what we can do for you.

Finding The Right Strategy For Your Case

Many immigrants are surprised to learn of their possible deportation after they plead guilty to criminal charges. They come to our firm after making a decision that leaves them with very few options available.

We do not want you to find yourself in the same position. We look at the big picture, and make recommendations that we feel best protect your rights. We offer defense services in a number of serious criminal cases, including:

  • Drug crimes, such as manufacturing and trafficking
  • White collar crimes, such as money laundering and embezzlement
  • Assault and other violent crimes
  • Domestic violence
  • Theft and other property crimes

Each case is different, and the consequences you are facing will depend greatly on your current immigration status. We can explain what we think the government will do if you are convicted of the crime, which will take into account when preparing a defense to the underlying criminal case. We do our best to make sure you are aware of all of the issues present in your case before you make any decisions about your future. We are also highly experienced and well-versed in negotiating criminal court resolutions that preserve immigration options and defenses or to avoid immigration consequences altogether.
