Immigration Law

Anthony J. Nunes / August 19th, 2013

Immigration law largely focuses on the attaining and maintaining of legal status in the United States.

Presently, visas in the United States can be broadly separated into two categories: one for people seeking to live in the U.S. permanently, termed Immigrant Visas, and the other for people coming to the U.S. for a limited time, termed Non-Immigrant Visas. Some categories of Non-Immigrant visas include Tourist, Student, Fiance, and Work visas.

Even those with visas and green cards should seek competent legal advice from an experienced Immigration lawyer such as Attorney Anthony J. Nunes, as Immigration laws are constantly changing and can be rather complex. Those without visas and green cards are also advised to seek expert Immigration advice in the often confusing and arduous process of seeking legal residence in the United States.

Some Immigration law matters our office handles are the following: Green cards, Visas – Consulate processing overseas, Removing Conditions on Green Cards, Filing requests to the USCIS to extend and replace green cards, Citizenship, Citizenship for relatives born abroad, Passports and replacing Passports, Deportation – Deportation defense, Criminal-Immigration, Visitor Visas, Student Visas, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (“DACA”) and renewals for the DACA program, Freedom of Information Act (“FOIA”) requests, Business Immigration, and various other matters that arise in the context of Immigration Law.

Criminal Law

Anthony J. Nunes / July 19th, 2013

Criminal law differs largely from civil law in that you can possibly lose your freedom and liberty as a result of a criminal case. Nowhere in law is there such an emphasis upon proscription of penalties and punitive measures. Criminal law regulates social conduct to help maintain a better society, but often individuals find themselves in situations in which the criminal law system does not expressly side with them or does not seem to.

Criminal law charges range in severity, complication, and potential punishment. A criminal trial with the bad outcome could ruin lives forever so it is unquestionably very important to have competent and expert legal consultation and advisement to make certain that the case progresses and ends with the best possible outcome.

An experienced and expert criminal defense attorney is absolutely vital in order to allow the accused an adequate defense. The overwhelming majority of individuals who choose to act as their own defense lawyer in a criminal trial may find themselves in serious trouble that could likely have been avoided with the aid of an experienced and knowledgeable criminal defense attorney such as Attorney Anthony J. Nunes.

Criminal Law matters our office handles include the following: All Felonies and misdemeanors: Burglary, grand theft, theft, fraud, embezzlement, Domestic Violence, Battery, Assault, Assault and Battery, Prostitution, Sex crimes, Assault with a Deadly Weapon, Possession of a gun, Possession of a deadly weapon, Disturbing the Peace, Violation of Restraining Orders, DUI’s, Expungements (“Cleaning” your Criminal Record), Criminal Record Reviews with the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the FBI, Criminal Immigration, Child Delinquency cases and various other areas involving Criminal Law.

Attorney Anthony J. Nunes has extensive knowledge and experience handling all criminal matters for over a decade.

Civil Law

Anthony J. Nunes / June 30th, 2013

Our office also handles cases involving Civil Restraining Orders and Names Changes.

Civil restraining orders are restraining orders that do not relate to divorce, paternity or child custody proceedings. For instance, a civil restraining order may arise in the context of a dispute with a neighbor where you would like to ask the court to restrain that person’s undesirable conduct or actions. These restraining orders normally involve everyday disputes and disagreements that arise between people.

Another area involving Civil Law that our office handles are name changes. Name changes typically occur when a person divorces or when a person is seeking to change his or her name in the process of applying for U.S. citizenship. However, there are occasions when the issue of a name change arises not involving these matters, for instance, when the parent of a child disappears and you would like your child to have your name, or when you no longer desire to have your birth name or names.

If you are considering filing a civil restraining order or were served with a civil restraining order and must respond and would desire expert and experienced legal representation, or would like a name change, please feel free to contact our office for legal assistance.

If you have any questions regarding these matters contact us today!

Family Law

Anthony J. Nunes / May 19th, 2013

Our Office handles a wide array of family law related legal matters, from Divorce to Paternity cases, child custody, child support, spousal support, Child Dependency Cases and countless other family related matters.

Family law, specifically pertaining to divorce, is constantly changing and is complex, so this makes legal consultation and advice an invaluable tool for individuals working through legal matters in this area of law, whether they have experienced similar matters before in the past or whether it is something completely new to them.

One of the greatest challenges in family law matters is often mediation. A lawyer working in family law has to be able, not only to understand, convey, and use the law to the benefit of their client, but also have the capacity to mediate adequately and appropriately in regard to both the client’s desire and best interest.

If you have any questions relating to a family law matter please do not hesitate to contact Attorney Anthony J. Nunes. He has extensive knowledge and experience in handling family law cases in the local courts.
