Private Criminal Defense Attorney or Public Defender?
In these tough economic times many people choose the services of a Public Defender. While Public Defenders are certainly qualified to defend your case, there are advantages to hiring private counsel:
-You Won't Need to go to Court: Private lawyers can appear for you on misdemeanor cases- there is no need to go to court until a settlment has been reached or the case is tried. If you use the service of the public defender you must appear at every court appearance, and often this takes all morning, or even all day.
-A Continuous Defense: Your Public Defender may change from court date to court date. With our legal team you always know who is representing you.
-Personalized Attention: You can call us at the office, or even come in and see us at anytime to discuss your case.
-The Public Defender is not always free: In some cases people who use a public defender are suprised to learn at the end of the case that the Judge may order them to pay all- or a portion of- the costs of the public defender, depending on their ability to pay.
An In-House Immigration Attorney
Many times criminal clients who are not U.S. Citizens face hidden consequences (including deportation) for pleading guilty to crimes involving moral turpitude. Don't let this happen to you. Our defense team includes a knowledgeable immigration attorney Nathan Wei, who knows immigration law and will consult on your case concerning any immigration consequence.
