A Conviction Does Not End Your Case

Following a conviction, it is often advised to minimize the potential long-term effects of a criminal conviction. To that end, the firm’s attorney also handles expungements, certificates of rehabilitation and governor’s pardons to the extent that they are legally available depending on the nature of the conviction suffered.

Criminal Law And Immigration Concerns

The Law Offices of Peter F. Goldscheider is also cognizant and knowledgeable about the immigration consequences of criminal convictions and the rapidly changing law in this field including the most recent decisions of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

The firm works with immigration lawyers to assure that any conviction our clients suffer will not result in their deportation from this county or a status of nonadmissibility which could prevent them from ever traveling abroad. In addition, the firm has represented clients facing deportation because of the failure of other attorneys to do their job correctly and get their conviction set aside, hence preventing the client from being forced to leave the United States involuntarily.

Beyond Criminal Matters

In addition to the widest range of criminal matters, the firm also handles proceedings in the Department of Motor Vehicles involving license suspension issues and other interactions with that department. It additionally handles disciplinary matters involving the denial of professional licensing as well as general representation involving interactions with California administrative agencies.

Finally, Mr. Goldscheider represents parents as well as children in Juvenile Court proceedings including delinquency and dependency matters. In this regard, the firm often works with family law attorneys who represent its clients in divorce matters and other family matters.
