Case Dismissed: Foreign National Allowed to Return Home

The Scenario: A foreign national visiting family was arrested for shoplifting with only a week remaining on her trip.  She would lose her job if she were delayed returning home and the arraignment was scheduled for two months after she was scheduled to leave the US. 

The Results: Using our reputation and experience, we persuaded the District Attorney to expedite her case and have her arraigned within days.  We successfully negotiated a deal with the DA to adjourn her case in contemplation of dismissal, which meant our client would have no criminal record, and not lose her 10-year multiple reentry visa to the US.
