WARRANTS

Recalling warrants can usually be handled within 48 hours if the court is open and it's within 15 miles of our Garden Grove office. It's advisable that immigrants facing misdemeanors hire one of the best criminal defense attorney to recall the warrant in order to prevent detentions which may lead to ICE (Immigration Customs and Enforcement) holds. If a bench warrant is not recalled, you could be arrested at any time while in public and are deemed a fugitive. That means a simple traffic stop could lead to a detention or an arrest.

Criminal Defense of Immigrants

People who are not yet US citizens face enormous odds as immigrants who are arrested for a criminal violation. Most of the time a felony, multiple misdemeanors or crimes of moral turpitude, are deportable/removable under immigration laws. In fact, you don't even have to be convicted of the crime to be removed. Expungements won't help with immigration matters. Hire a local top criminal defense attorney in Orange County who has worked with the local courts and has compassion for helping immigrants.
