Being arrested for a crime can be a frightening and disorienting process, especially if the detainment is unexpected. Do everything you can to avoid panicking: You have rights under the law, and you must be sure to exercise them. Remain silent and do not make any statements to law enforcement, no matter what is said. Do not answer questions. You always have a right to legal representation, so continue to ask to speak to a lawyer. When you meet with Sterger Law Group, we will walk you through all available defense strategies and advise on the likelihood of success for each approach.

A Criminal Conviction May Endanger Your Immigration Status 

Penalties for a criminal conviction may include incarceration, fines, and mandatory counseling. If you are a non-citizen, you could also be targeted for removal, even if you have a green card. Violent felonies, serious crimes, and certain misdemeanors, including drug crimes, are considered deportable offenses that could prompt removal proceedings. We understand how to approach criminal matters involving potential immigration consequences and will fight to protect your future in the United States. Our firm can also assist you if you have already been placed in removal proceedings, so do not wait to reach out.
