Brian grew up in Nogales, Arizona, a city that lies along the border of the United States and Mexico. Growing up in Nogales gave Brian a unique perspective on some of the major issues our country is currently facing; including but not limited to immigration and drug trafficking. Brian’s is the son of a refugee. His mother was born in Cienfuegos, Cuba. Although she naturalized many years before her birth, Brian witnessed firsthand the traumatic effects that immigrating to a foreign country at a young age can cause. In 1961, at the age of seven, his mother immigrated to the United States without her parents during Operation Pedro Pan. Brian’s passion for helping immigrants with their immigration process comes not only from being the son of an immigrant, but also from having lived in a bordertown. Brian recognizes that even good people can succumb to the pressures and temptations of life. He truly believes that every person accused of a crime deserves the best representation and the opportunity to demonstrate that their charges do not define them as a person.

When faced with a criminal or immigration court case, let Brian defend you or your loved one!

Legal Answers
Q. My son's public record reads Disposition: Court Dismissal" What does that mean?
A: I would highly recommend contacting the clerk of the court directly. Often times defendant’s are charged with multiple counts and may have, as part of a plea agreement, had some counts “dismissed by the court” while being convicted of a separate count. Hopefully, your sons case is dismissed entirely. Contacting the court directly is the best way to know for certain.
Q. Am I able to get a medical marijuana card while on bond as I was rear ended and have been having pain in my body
A: So long as your pending case is a in state court, not federal court, you're able to obtain a medical marijuana card and use as prescribed.
Q. My son is 17, was detained by border patrol in Az. He was not charged or arrested for anything. Car & phone seized.
A: It is not uncommon for Border Patrol to catch and release individuals they suspect are involved in criminal activity. The agents seem to have a great deal of discretionary power in this regard. It may be in your son’s best interest to speak to a federally licensed attorney as he may be under investigation. As for the vehicle, the registered owner will receive a letter regarding their property rights in regards to the civil forfeiture. If the vehicle has a lean holder, the lien holder will likely take possession.
