ANSWER

I agree with my colleagues. The short answer is retain a lawyer and don’t speak to anyone but your lawyer about the case.

A good criminal defense attorney will listen to you, address all of your needs (including the issue of your H1 Visa), and try to get you a resolution that does not compromise your record or your future.

I offer free consults and would be happy to sit down with you to discuss your case in confidence.
