If you have been arrested on criminal charges in California, you will need immediate and aggressive intervention from an experienced Santa Ana criminal defense lawyer who can protect your rights and negotiate / litigate a timely, affordable resolution. Felony and misdemeanor criminal charges can carry significant penalties, even for first time offenses. At the Santa Ana law offices of Louis M. Piscopo , our criminal defense lawyers have successfully represented clients throughout Southern California arrested on serious criminal charges:

  • Drunk Driving / DUI: a drunk driving offense can result in the loss of your license, high insurance rates and substantial fines and jail time. Worse yet, a conviction can affect your immigration status, resulting in deportation / removal proceedings.
  • Domestic Violence: California law enforcement officers are obliged to make an arrest in nearly all cases reporting domestic violence. You will need a strong defense to counteract false or retaliatory charges and address any criminal deportation issues.
  • Drug Crimes: Including manufacture / possession / sale / distribution of Marijuana (pot) / Meth / Cocaine (Crack) / Heroin / Ecstasy and other illegal narcotics and controlled substances.
  • Gun / Weapon Charges
  • Shoplifting / Theft / Robbery / Assault
  • Solicitation / Prostitution

“I’ve been arrested – What’s going to happen to my green card?”

“Me ha detenido la policía. ¿Ya me van a deportar?”

If you are a temporary or permanent alien resident of the United States, a criminal arrest or conviction can result in a loss of your Green Card and immediate deportation / removal proceedings. At Louis M. Piscopo , our experience as criminal defense AND immigration attorneys allows us to address both criminal charges and any immigration consequences. A U.S. immigration attorney from our office in Santa Ana can represent you in both matters, assuring that any plea bargain or deal with prosecutors will not affect your immigration status.
