Our founder and lead attorney, Joanna Nowokunski started her career as a criminal defense attorney for the Legal Aid Society, and the field remains at the core of what we do.
Being charged with a criminal offense can have severe consequences for your personal life, future employment, and your immigration status if you are not a US citizen. That is why having experienced legal counseling in these cases is so important.
We believe that everyone deserves to be represented by experienced and zealous attorney no matter what their financial situation is.
In a perfect world, if you stand wrongfully accused, the truth would prevail and you would leave as free person at the end of your trial. But the reality is, that that is not always the case. Currently it’s estimated that thousands of Americans sits behind bars wrongfully convicted.
Going through a criminal trial in itself can be a scary experience, especially if you have been wrongfully accused and face severe charges.
We handle a range of criminal defense charges, incl.:
- Driving Under the Influence
- Driving While Intoxicated
- Domestic Violence
- Petit Larceny/Grand Larceny
Understand criminal charges
A criminal charge is raised against you by the State, or in some cases even at the Federal level. If convicted of such charges, whether it’s a felony or misdemeanor, you may face imprisonment, large fines, loss of the right to hold a professional license or public office, and many other negative consequences.
If you face criminal charges and are not a US citizen, contact with the criminal system can have negative consequences on your residence status and in the worst case scenario lead to deportation from the country. At Nowokunski Law Firm PLLC. we specialize in criminal and immigration law to fully work to protect you if you face criminal charges and the risk of losing your legal residence.
