We gear our representation and case disposition to make sure to avoid your case spilling over into other parts of your life, causing collateral consequences.


 

 

AVOIDING COLLATERAL CONSEQUENCES

Protecting your Job, Legal Status, and Family

Collateral consequences are the additional penalties that may attach to a criminal case beyond things like jail, community service, fines, or probation.  They are the further civil actions by the state that are triggered as a consequence of the case.  Collateral consequences affect important legal rights in other parts of your life.  Most commonly, collateral consequences can affect your job, professional licence, immigration status, or family law case.   


In order for our firm to protect you from collateral consequences we take special care to screen for collateral consequence issues at intake.  We then tailor our representation to avoid letting your criminal case spread throughout your life.

Below are a few of the more common collateral consequences that we work to protect you from:

WORK AND PROFESSIONAL LICENSE

Many careers carry with them state or federally regulated licenses.  The most common examples of regulated fields are health care professionals; psychologists; lawyers; teachers; engineers; social workers, tradesmen, and certain service industry workers.  We focus our representation of professionals to protect their licenses and livelihoods.

IMMIGRATION AND LEGAL STATUS

If you are not a citizen, a criminal case may have an effect on your immigration status including possible deportation, denial or naturalization, or exclusion from admission.  We work to set your case up for an immigration-neutral outcome.  Learn more about our work to defend the immigrant community here.

FAMILY LAW

A person facing criminal charges may be especially vulnerable in a family court proceedings.  It's no secret that a favorite divorce tactic for some has been the tried and true method of lying about a criminal case to gain the upper hand in a custody dispute.  We are prepared to take care of your case in a way that protects you from being taken advantage of.
