The Law Office of Fabian Lima provides expert representation in criminal defense matters regardless of your citizenship status. However, when you are not an American citizen, extra care is required to determine the immigration consequences of a criminal charge and its many outcomes as a simple misdemeanor conviction may trigger deportation proceedings. For both US citizens and non-US citizens, any arrest is scary for what it could mean to your liberty and future. From the outset of your case, it is important to obtain high-quality representation to ensure that all of your rights are protected and to ensure that you get the best possible outcome. We will keep you informed of all of the evidence the police have against you and counsel you on the best course of action, whether it is better to proceed to trial or whether a guilty plea may be in your best interests. If the decision is to go to trial, you will have a seasoned trial attorney who has successfully defended people accused of serious crimes ranging from selling narcotics to sexual assault. Whatever the charge, we will work to obtain the "not guilty" verdict that you want, or the best possible plea bargain if necessary.
