Defending Against Criminal Charges and Deportation
At the Law Offices of Anthony J. Pullara, our practice is two-fold. Much of our work involves helping people seek relief from criminal convictions, especially noncitizens who face serious immigration consequences. We also provide strong and strategic defense for people who are facing charges but have not been convicted — many of whom need to protect their immigration status from the future consequences of a conviction.
From offices in Torrance, we serve clients in Carson, Redondo Beach and throughout Southern California. Our law firm also accepts cases from immigration lawyers around the country whose clients could face possible deportation without effective relief from a criminal conviction in California.
Attorney Anthony J. Pullara’s Role in Seeking Post-Conviction Relief
Anthony J. Pullara is the managing attorney at our law firm. His successful legal practice is built on more than 25 years of experience handling criminal defense cases for citizens and noncitizens alike. As a criminal defense attorney with an immigration focus, Anthony Pullara has experience that many attorneys do not have: seeking relief from convictions that could result in deportation for immigrants if left unchallenged.
Obtaining post-conviction relief is challenging, but Mr. Pullara knows how important it is to make every effort, because being forced to leave the United States — and possibly being separated from your family — is such a devastating outcome for an immigrant. This is especially true for someone who has been in the U.S. for a long time.
This is why we focus so much of our practice on post-conviction challenges for those facing potential deportation. We look for avenues to vacate or modify convictions due to ineffective assistance of counsel or other procedural errors. In some cases, it is possible to obtain expungement of criminal records to help our clients achieve a fresh start after a conviction.
Smart and Focused Defense Against Criminal Charges
Regardless of your immigration status, it is important to create a strong defense against criminal charges. You don’t want to find yourself in jail or prison, or hit with a heavy fine, because you failed to fight back against the charges.
Our firm has the skill and experience to insist that your rights are respected. With over two decades of criminal defense experience to draw on, Mr. Pullara can guide you to the most promising path toward a favorable resolution. We defend clients against many types of criminal charges, including domestic violence, drunk driving, drug offenses and theft crimes.
A Note to Immigration Attorneys
Our law firm is available to assist immigration lawyers whose clients face criminal charges. Over the years, we have accepted cases on referral from lawyers throughout California, and many referrals have also come from attorneys in other states who have clients being deported based upon a conviction from California. In addition, we have successfully litigated cases in California for clients who are outside the United States.
