Why do I need a Criminal Defense Attorney?
You are innocent until proven guilty. You do not want to go to court alone. Meet with an experienced criminal defense attorney before you accept any deals or plea offers from the District Attorney.
You do not have to make a decision the first day you go to court. You can always request a continuance to give you time to speak with a private attorney.
In some occasions, the District Attorney may offer you a great deal in exchange for you to plead guilty. Sometimes because the District Attorney doesn't believe they have a strong case against you or have other matters that they rather focus on.
What if I am not a United States Citizen?
Burga Law Firm PC is one of the few Immigration firms that know Criminal Defense. If you are charged with a crime and we are not able to dismiss it, we know exactly how to negotiate a plea to avoid serious Immigration Consequences.
Some Criminal Defense pleas work great for individuals who are US Citizens; but it may have a serious consequence for a noncitizen who may get denied a green card, citizenship or even be deported from the United States.
Burga Law Firm PC will also take your case even if you have already been convicted so that we can fix it to avoid Immigration consequences. Sometimes small changes such as a sentence of 365 days reduced to 364 (PC 17b) can have a significant outcome with Immigration. In other cases, it may require a filing of a motion asking the court to vacate the conviction because you were either not properly advised of the immigration consequences (PC 1016.5) or your defense attorney did not explain to you the Immigration consequences of your plea (PC 1473.7).
