Criminal Defense Lawyer - New Hanover, Brunswick, and Pender Counties
Granade Law will address your criminal charges immediately.
Even for the innocent, criminal charges are serious. If ignored, criminal charges can result in unnecessary penalties, including imprisonment. If you are guilty, an attorney can still help you avoid an excessively severe, or otherwise undeserved punishment.
We understand that criminal charges are an urgent matter. Because of the urgency, we act immediately on our clients' defense. We can help you understand your charges, build your defense, present your case, and assess your options for the future.
If you are not a citizen of the United States, criminal convictions can affect your ability to obtain, and can even cause revocation of, your immigration status. The derivative immigration status of family members may also be at risk. Criminal convictions are one of the most common reasons for deportation, and convictions of crimes classified as "aggravated felonies" or "crimes of moral turpitude" can put you at risk for removal from the United States.
If you have been charged with a crime and are not a United States citizen, it is important that you contact an immigration attorney to understand the effects a conviction might have on your immigration status. At Granade Law, we help non-United States Citizens charged with a crime evaluate potential immigration consequences and accordingly develop an appropriate defense strategy.
We represent clients in all varieties of criminal matters from traffic citations to felonies.
