Criminal Defense

If you have been arrested for a state or federal misdemeanor or felony, or if you need a qualified criminal attorney that understands the criminal process and who can assist you in understanding your rights and what may result in you being charged, contact our criminal attorneys at Goldstein & Scopellite, PC. Our firm has the experience you need. Many of our attorneys used to be prosecutors and so we understand how the process works and we can work to get you the best deal possible, not just the deal the prosecutor wants you to initially take, and we may even be able to get your case dismissed, if you are eligible or have the evidence needed to support a dismissal of your case. At Goldstein & Scopellite, PC, you will receive experienced, knowledgeable and aggressive legal representation in your criminal matter from our expert Dallas criminal defense attorneys. We do not sit idly by or back down and we will represent you and defend against the allegations made against by the prosecution, every step of the way, and we will ensure that you have the proper legal representation to protect your rights. If we remain your counsel through to the trail process, we will work to get you the best possible result, whether it be before a bench trial or jury trial.

Criminal Charges and Immigration Consequences

Our attorneys are knowledgeable in the immigration consequences that result from you criminal history, including drug and theft related charges and convictions, and we may be able to help you avoid or mitigate the problems that may arise regarding your immigration status by working with the prosecutor or DA on your reducing or dismissing your criminal charges and/or by trying to enter an agreement that will keep you from having immigration status issues later on.

If immigration court proceedings arise from any charge that resulted from a plea or a guilty charge that you accepted, our immigration/criminal attorneys are experienced in deportation and removal proceedings and deportation and removal litigation and we may be able to defend you in immigration court. This may require filing appeals in the state or federal court to unwind the underlying case, but don’t fret that possible option as our immigration attorneys are experienced in that process and we can handle that type of appeal, as well.

Other Criminal Matters

We also handle charges involving:

  • Minor in Possession
  • White collar crime: fraud, embezzlement
  • Minor offenses: shoplifting, municipal violations, petty theft
