Criminal Defense Representation With Integrity
Joseph H. Beale, Attorney At Law, PLLC, has been offering skilled criminal defense representation for more than 20 years. America’s criminal justice system is based on the idea that each of us is considered innocent until proven guilty, and that’s what I believe as well. When you hire me, you can be sure that I’m giving you my full support as well as the benefits of my training and experience.
I also believe that positive resolutions can be achieved without cutting corners or engaging in shady practices. I have earned a positive reputation for winning cases fairly and ethically, and this is another benefit I pass along to my clients.

Protecting You From Consequences In Other Contexts
A criminal incident may have collateral repercussions in other areas of your life. Without an experienced attorney advocating on your behalf, you may not recognize this danger until it is too late. Divorce and immigration proceedings are two common examples. An arrest, even for a minor criminal incident, may bring unwanted attention from immigration authorities if you are a noncitizen. For certain crimes such as drug offenses, immigration consequences may attach even if you are not convicted.
Similarly, certain crimes may negatively impact your divorce proceeding. A family law judge will hesitate to place a child into a home situation where there has been a domestic abuse allegation. The allegation may also raise questions about the credibility of both parties.
We have the experience to see the big picture. Before accepting a plea bargain, a non-U.S. citizen should consult with an attorney. If there is a pending divorce, the family court may agree to an extension until the criminal allegations have been resolved in the appropriate forum.
