Access to resources outside the criminal justice system
We serve clients inside and outside the courtroom. We refer clients with mental health issues to medical specialists who can diagnose and treat mental disorders, which are often the underlying cause of criminal behavior. Mental health problems are often a mitigating circumstance. Treatment under the auspices of a therapeutic court is an alternative to incarceration.
Substance abuse treatment resources
We help clients who have alcohol and/or drug problems by helping them to find the appropriate program and resources they need.
We invite you to learn more about all the areas of law our firm practices, including:
- Immigration — Non-citizens convicted of certain crimes will be deported. Before you enter a plea, you should discuss the immigration consequences with an attorney.
- DUI — If you’re facing DUI charges, Landheer Law can represent you in court and if necessary take your case to trial. We can also represent you at DMV administrative proceedings, which can result in a driver license suspension.
- Drug offenses — We defend your rights in court and in some cases will be able to help clients avoid felony convictions and incarceration by referring them to drug court or an appropriate drug and alcohol program instead.
- Sexual Assault — Sexual assault and other sex crimes are serious charges that involve jail time and registration as a sex offender. They can damage your reputation, your social life, and your ability to obtain a job. Landheer Law can help preserve your reputation by fighting false sexual assault charges.
