Have a friend or loved one in jail who needs to speak with an attorney about his/her rights and the potential consequences of the charges he/she is facing?
Why not have an attorney go to the jail, speak with them in person and answer all their questions and concerns?
If you have a friend, family member or loved one who is in jail for a criminal case, because of an immigration hold — or in immigration detention — The Abogado Ernesto Law Group will send an attorney to visit him/her in jail or detention for a consultation about their case.
Sometimes, people are unexpectedly arrested and taken to jail. Often, friends or family will visit an attorney, then go to the jail and try to explain what the attorney said.
Unfortunately, friends and family often don’t know all the facts about the current criminal charges or the details of past criminal charges (if any). Without knowing these things, it is difficult for an attorney to evaluate a case or give accurate advice about potential consequences.
Similarly, friends and family of someone with an immigration hold may not know enough information for the attorney to determine whether the detained person can get out of jail, whether they will be deported, or what options may be available in immigration court.
