Get the Counsel Your Case Deserves
Any criminal conviction can result in a host of unforeseen personal consequences for the accused. Theft and white collar cases, however, can come with certain, far-reaching legal ramifications that the accused will want to mitigate—or avoid altogether. At The Law Offices of Paul S. Geller, we always try to stay cognizant of these factors for our clients and ensure that our approach to their case prioritizes both their immediate and long-term interests until a favorable resolution is secured.
If you have been charged with theft or a white collar crime, get the comprehensive counsel needed to combat the state's allegations against you. Call (626) 784-4143 today.
Forfeiture & Professional Licenses
Forfeiture laws allow law enforcement to seize or put a hold on your bank accounts, houses, cars, etc. That is why if you are arrested or investigated for a theft or white collar crime, you need to contact a criminal defense lawyer with the knowledge of these side issues.
Additionally, if you are a professional with a license registered with the state or other government entity, these types of charges can bring your professional career to a screeching halt. Quite often, without proper representation, the Court might restrict or even suspend your ability to continue in your profession until the criminal case is resolved.
This can be an issue for:
- Stock brokers
- Physical therapists
- Real estate agents
Consequently, you could lose not only your livelihood, but you’ll lose the respectable, professional reputation you’ve worked so hard to maintain. Typically, you have a right to have a licensing hearing which is separate from the criminal court proceeding, but the courts often ignore this right and impose restrictions while the criminal case is still pending. This is why it is so important to have an experienced attorney who knows how to handle these cases with a keen awareness of the professional licensing issue.
Do NOT put your livelihood and freedom into the hands of the less experienced. We know how to handle these cases while protecting all aspects of your personal life and professional career. Let us protect and defend you!
