A Careful Attention to Detail in All Cases, Especially your Immigration Status
Most criminal defense attorneys have little or no experience with immigration issues and are thus ill equipped to assist individuals charged with a crime who are not U.S. citizens.
Fernando Alonso has a great deal of experience in both immigration and criminal defense, which can mean the difference between deportation and remaining in the U.S. legally. By carefully examining your status and the severity of the offense charged, your best course of action can be determined at the start.
Investigation of your legal status/charges
Many charged with an illegal offense are surprised when they learn that a conviction might be the least of their concerns; they might actually be deported! Even minor crimes might have an adverse result on your immigration status resulting in much greater financial pain and anguish than a conviction.
Mr. Alonso has extensive experience in both immigration and criminal defense which makes him especially qualified to evaluate and defend your criminal charges. Mr. Alonso will know what charges you can withstand and those that must be fought absolutely.
Personal Contact with Your Attorney
Mr. Alonso will personally meet with you and handle your case from beginning to end. He will answer all of your questions fully to your satisfaction and return your calls promptly until the matter is completely concluded.
While you are going through a very stressful time, it is critical to know that you can reach your attorney. Mr. Alonso will return your call within 24 hours of your call to ensure that you are kept informed about the status of your case.
It is likely that he will not only have to be in contact with the prosecutor’s office but also with immigration officials. By closely working with you and these other officials he will put together the best defense possible and fully explain it to you.
Types of Cases We Handle:
Among the violent crime charges we defend against are:
- Criminal Threats
Sex Crime Charges
Conviction for a criminal sex offense can lead to years in a state or federal prison, getting ostracized from the community, and having to register for life as a sex offender. But many innocent people get falsely accused of sex crimes, especially date rape and sexual assault.
Criminal defense lawyers start by scrutinizing the alleged victim’s background. We look to see if the accuser has any prior history of such accusations or false claims. We investigate the case with our own private detectives and experts. Careful investigation often can result in the charges being reduced or dismissed.
We defend against all sex crimes charges, including:
- Sexual Battery
- Statutory Rape
- Lewd Acts with a Child
- Failure to Register as a Sex Offender
- Indecent Exposure
- Lewd Conduct in Public
- Prostitution Solicitation
Also known as “White collar crimes” these are typically crimes involving theft of money or some other illegal financial gain, such as securities fraud. A good criminal defense attorney can help you fight the charges; with the most common result that some or all of the charges are reduced or dismissed.
We represent clients as to all financial and property crimes, such as:
- Indentity Theft
- Grand Theft
- Securities Fraud
- Receiving Stolen Property
- Real Estate Fraud
More people get wrongfully accused of domestic violence than any other type of crime. Often the accuser lies to the police and makes up false allegations of abuse. Accusers fabricate stories out of anger or jealousy, or to gain the upper hand in divorce or child custody proceedings. Whatever the case, we can help you fight back.
We defend clients against any accusations of domestic violence, spousal battery or spousal abuse, in particular:
- Domestic Battery
- Child Endangerment
- Child Abuse
- Injury to a Spouse or Cohabitant
Police frequently use unreliable informants, defective warrants and other illegal methods to make drug busts. A good criminal defense attorney can challenge these unconstitutional searches and search warrants, in an effort to get evidence and cases thrown out of court.
We represent clients in all misdemeanor or felony narcotics charges, including:
- Possession of a Controlled Substance
- Possession for Sales
- Sales or Transportation of a Controlled Substance
- Possession with Intent to Distribute
- Possession within a School Zone
