PRACTICE AREAS

 

Criminal Defense

 

A criminal prosecution is an unfamiliar and intimidating experience for most people. The stakes are high and include: the possibility of being convicted and incarcerated, the stigma of a criminal conviction, loss of employment, loss of one’s professional license, revocation of a driver’s license, and potentially years of probation or parole supervision.

 

If the person is not a United States citizen, a conviction can lead to the person’s detention and deportation from the United States – even if they are a lawful “permanent” resident of the United States.

 

When facing criminal charges, it is of critical importance to retain the services of an experienced criminal defense attorney at the earliest possible stage in the proceedings, even before arrest when possible.

 

As a former prosecutor, attorney Nasreen Syed is well qualified to safeguard you or your loved one through the difficult experience of dealing with a criminal prosecution.  She has extensive trial experience and familiarity with both sides of the criminal justice system.

 

Ms. Syed's approach is comprehensive and proactive.  Early intervention is emphasized in order to help protect your constitutional rights and ensure the preservation of favorable evidence.

 

After carefully investigating and analyzing the facts and circumstances of your matter, Ms. Syed will utilize her knowledge and experience to develop a defense strategy which is tailored to the particular circumstances of your case and your specific priorities and concerns. 

 

When the accused is not a United States citizen, it is of the utmost importance to be aware of the immigration consequences flowing from a given plea or conviction. Whenever possible, Ms. Syed will focus on obtaining a resolution that will not trigger deportation, or which will preserve eligibility to apply for relief from deportation.
