Penalties from a DUI can add up to tens of thousands of dollars in fines, license suspensions and lost time spent in jail. That's why we will be there to help you navigate through this daunting period to help you beat your case or obtain a result with limited financial and personal costs. Our Barrera Legal Group Criminal Defense team has been successful in obtaining, reduction of charges from a DUI, dismissals of DUI cases and administrative driver's license suspensions and acquittals after jury trials. 

Just because you may be accused of a theft offense doesn't necessarily mean you actually violated a theft related law. That's why we are here to help you determine how to fight and beat your case or if necessary limiting the financial and personal costs to you.

Our Barrera Legal Group Criminal Defense team has been successful in convincing prosecutors to dismiss cases and jurors at trial to acquit our clients by demonstrating that the facts of a case did not amount to a violation of a theft related law. 

Prosecutors often fail to look at the entire situation when you are charged with domestic violence. Our offices will investigate the circumstances that resulted in the charges against you and help you mount a defense.

After close investigation  and evaluation of the facts and circumstances of a violence related allegation, our Barrera Legal Group Criminal Defense Team have successfully taken apart  many alleged victim claims to successfully convince prosecutors to dismiss a case or  convince juries that a victim is not credible to lead to acquittal of a violence related charge.

Many drug related offenses whether simple possession of drug offenses to drug trafficking offenses require law enforcement to properly document the encounter with an alleged offender and properly maintain the chain of custody of the evidence obtained from an arrest. This process of arrest and seizure of evidence is not easy and many times there can be issues with an arrest and seizure that can be challenged that can lead to the evidence becoming unusable at trial. 

Our Barrera Legal Group Criminal Defense Team is able to scrutinize the arrest and seizure in these cases to bring challenges that have led to the suppression of evidence that concluded in dismissal of cases in State and Federal Court. 

Many immigration cases that subject a noncitizen to removal from the United States or disqualification from an immigration benefit intersect with violation of state criminal laws. What many people are not aware of including many criminal defense attorneys is that more often than not what may appear to be a violation of a state law may not necessarily be a violation of an immigration law despite what attorneys for the Department of Homeland Security or the Department of State allege. 

Our Barrera Legal Group Criminal Defense Team is able to evaluate state law convictions to determine whether an allegation of an immigration law violation can be challenged to save a noncitizen from deportation or to challenge that a non citizen is eligible for an immigration benefit. Barrera Legal Group has successfully made these challenges having helped many noncitizens either maintain their immigration status in the United States having deportation cases dismissed or convincing immigration officers and judges that a non citizen is eligible for an immigration benefit.
