Criminal Defense For Immigrants
For immigrants, the consequences of a criminal conviction can be much higher than fines and incarceration. Even immigrants charged with relatively minor crimes run the risk of deportation. For this reason, it is important that immigrants choose a lawyer who is not only skilled at criminal defense, but experienced in immigration law as well.
At the law office of Robert F. Jacobs & Associates, PLC, in Santa Fe Springs, we have more than 22 years of experience providing criminal defense for immigrants in the Los Angeles area and beyond. We are one of the few law offices focused on both immigration law and criminal defense. Our founder, attorney Robert F. Jacobs, is certified as a specialist in immigration and nationality law by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization.
When you choose us, you can rest assured that we know how to defend you against criminal charges while also protecting your immigration status.
Post-Conviction Relief For Immigrants
We have earned a reputation for our skillful handling of post-conviction relief matters. In continuing legal education seminars offered through the Beverly Hills and Los Angeles County bar associations, attorney Robert F. Jacobs has taught other attorneys how to properly prepare and conduct post-conviction relief for their clients. We handle:
Motions to Vacate and Expungements: We can clear criminal records of convictions that may trigger deportation proceedings, interfere with immigration status or prevent an immigrant from becoming a lawful permanent resident (LPR) or a citizen.
Probation issues: We can file Motions to Reduce Probation or Terminate Probation Early. We can also defend against allegations of probation violations.
Defense Against All Criminal Charges
Our lawyers defend against all misdemeanor and felony charges, including:
- Drug possession and other drug charges
- Domestic violence
- Shoplifting and theft
We defend adults and juveniles against criminal charges.
