Criminal Defense, Immigration, Personal Injury & More!
https://deerelaw.com/contact-us/Being accused of a crime is a serious matter with consequences that could affect you for years, if not the rest of your life. The criminal justice system can be intimidating and confusing.
But it does not have to be that way. With an experienced attorney standing by you and fighting for your rights, the system will not run you over.
The law is supposed to allow a victim of an accident to be "made whole." This means that the you should be entitled to recover the total amount of financial losses attributed to the accident, including medical expenses, damage to your vehicle, lost wages, and possibly pain and suffering.
But insurance companies often try to resolve claims with victims by paying only medical expenses and/or repairing the damaged vehicle, and sometimes only a portion of those amounts. That's why it is so important to discuss your case thoroughly with an experienced attorney.
The U.S. Supreme Court held in its 2010 decision Padilla v. Kentucky, that criminal defense attorneys must advise their immigrant clients of the consequences, both direct and collateral, of a plea or conviction.
The attorney cannot escape the duty by simply remaining silent about the immigration consequences. Failure to do so can lead to a finding of ineffective assistance of counsel, malpractice claims, bar complaints/grievances, damage to reputation, and the inevitable spike in malpractice insurance premiums.
