Additional Consequences of Criminal Allegations
Facing Additional Consequences of Criminal Allegations? Denner Criminal Defense Group Will Protect Your Rights
If you have been charged and convicted of a criminal offense, including a drug crime, a sex crime, or a violent crime such as murder or arson, or if you have been found guilty of driving while intoxicated (DWI/DUI), you may be facing more than jail time and hefty fines.
You have rights and the Denner Criminal Defense Group is committed to making sure that your rights are protected every step of the way. If you are facing any of the following civil consequences of illegal activity, call our Boston office right away.
Civil litigation: A conviction for a theft or fraud offense may carry both criminal and civil penalties. For example, if you are convicted of shoplifting in Massachusetts, you could be required to pay restitution to the store owner. If you’ve been charged with a theft or fraud crime in Massachusetts and are worried about the financial implications of a conviction, the Denner Criminal Defense Group can help you avoid the most serious penalties.
Divorce: A conviction for a serious criminal offense could lead to a lengthy term of imprisonment and provide your spouse with grounds for a divorce. Under Massachusetts law, your spouse can file for divorce if you are convicted of a felony or a misdemeanor and have to serve at least 18 months in prison. An experienced criminal defense lawyer can help you fight your criminal charges and avoid prison time.
Driver’s license implications: If you are convicted of a DWI/DUI or if you commit a serious traffic violation, you could lose your driving privileges in the State of Massachusetts. Additionally, your license could be suspended or revoked as a penalty if you are convicted of certain criminal offenses. An experienced criminal and traffic defense lawyer can potentially get your charges downgraded or dismissed and help you keep your driver’s license.
Forfeiture: In addition to facing prison time and fines, you could also be subject to asset forfeiture if you are convicted of a serious criminal offense in Massachusetts. That’s because the state has the authority to seize any property that has a relationship to criminal activity. If you are facing a criminal conviction and possible asset forfeiture, call the experienced criminal defense lawyers at the Denner Criminal Defense Group immediately.
Disciplinary hearings and loss of professional license: Many professions and occupations require practitioners to be licensed by state agencies and regulatory boards. The Denner Criminal Defense Group lawyers represent a wide range of professionals in licensing hearings and proceedings. We provide legal counsel throughout the Northeast and across the nation in matters involving charges of professional misconduct.
Government contract debarment: Companies found to have committed ethical violations or criminal offenses could be prevented from doing business with the government. Our attorneys defend companies against charges that could result in the loss of a government contract or a prohibition against bidding on future contracts.
Security clearances: If you or your company has had any encounters with the law, check with an attorney about the possible effect on your security status. The Denner Criminal Defense Group attorneys represent government contractors, government officials and government employees who face revocation of their security clearance before several administrative bodies.
Immigration Assistance & Deportation Defense: The Denner Criminal Defense Group provides legal services to foreign nationals, including business owners, investors and others with a significant financial incentive to stay in the U.S. If you are facing deportation as a consequence of a criminal charge, we will provide removal defense and work tirelessly on your behalf to obtain permission for you to stay. Further, if you were charged but not convicted of a crime, you may face a problem applying for and being granted U.S. citizenship. We can help.
