Montebello Criminal Lawyers

Most people will go never be arrested or be involved with the criminal justice system in any way, unless it is to pay the occasional speeding ticket. However, there are other people who will not be so lucky. If you ever find yourself in a position where you have been arrested and charged with a crime, it is critical that you take the necessary steps to get experienced legal counsel to defend you in court. Failure to do so could possibly ruin the rest of your life, depending on the severity of the charges against you. Not all people who are charged with a crime are criminals. Some people are completely innocent, some people are charged due to a misunderstanding and others may simply have been associating with the wrong crowd. If you fall into any of these categories, being arrested and placed in jail among real criminals is a nightmare experience. At a time like this, you need the best legal representation you can find. Farar & Lewis LLP will do our best to get you out of the slammer and back on the streets as soon as possible.

Internet Crimes

Cyber crime is a large category. However, the vast majority of crimes that fall into this category deal with financial gain or stalking. We specialize in defending people who have been charged with cyber-stalking, hacking and fraud. Our firm’s experience when it comes to criminal prosecution gives us a great deal of insight into how a prosecutor will most likely formulate their case against our clients. This knowledge will allow us to plan a defense strategy that we can immediately use in court.

Child Pornography

We hear the term child pornography used a lot in the news. Most people believe they know exactly what child pornography is. However, it may surprise you to learn that the legal definition of child pornography can be something you would consider trivial and innocent. For example, someone who is underage sending the person they are dating a few nude photos of himself or herself as a gesture of love. This is something that happens in this country every day. Did you know the sender of the photos could possibly be charged with child pornography distribution? As crazy as that sounds, this is the way the law is written. Every child pornography case is completely different. Therefore, if you have been charged with anything pertaining to this crime in the Montebello area, it is very important that you get in touch with Farar & Lewis immediately. They will look at the facts of the case and formulate an appropriate defense strategy.

Immigration

Immigration law is an issue that is first and foremost in the minds of many people living in Southern California. Perhaps you are an undocumented immigrant or you have a relative who is in this position. If this is the case, you most likely spend your life living in fear of one day being deported. It is important to understand legal residents can also face deportation. If green card holders are convicted of specific crimes, they can be deported back to their country of origin. We are experienced in dealing with immigration law cases. Farar & Lewis will work hard to see that you or your loved one will not be detained or deported.
