Handling immigration-related charges

Federal offenses take all sorts of forms, whether they involve unlawful substances or are financial in nature. In recent months, however, a considerable amount of attention has shifted toward immigration violations and these charges can be extremely difficult for a variety of reasons. Some people may not be aware of their rights and responsibilities when it comes to immigration laws, while others may be afraid of the potential consequences of an unsuccessful outcome. For example, they may have to leave the country, which could separate them from their loved ones or spell disaster for a career that they have worked hard to build.

You have a down moment at work and decide to jump on Facebook to check out what your friends have been up to recently. However, much to your surprise, your password is no longer working. You have been hacked and some criminal has gotten a hold of your password and changed it, thus circumventing your security and gaining access to your personal information.

Firearms convictions often come with mandatory minimum sentences

According to the United States Sentencing Commission, federal firearms convictions often result in mandatory minimum prison sentences.

Peer pressure and drug charges as a teen

If you are in high school or college, or you are a young person who is surrounded by friends who like to party or push the limits, it is very important to be aware of some of the risks you may face. Aside from being hurt in a car accident, there are other ways you may suffer. For example, if your friends consume illegal drugs, you could find yourself in trouble if they are pulled over or searched by a law enforcement official. In fact, you could find yourself facing drug-related charges even if you were not taking drugs or directly participating in the unlawful behavior.
