Arlington Criminal Defense Attorney

Have you been arrested?

Without qualified and effective representation, it will be difficult to prevent a conviction. Alband, Lane & Balderama's dedicated criminal defense lawyer is available to help you with legal advice and skilled advocacy.

We are zealous litigators that will work with unrelenting determination to obtain optimum results in your case. Navid Alband has years of experience as a prosecutor, and knows how to prepare an aggressive defense. He is a proven advocate that has tried over 100 jury cases.

Our firm can defend criminal charges involving misdemeanors and felonies, and has a successful track record in federal criminal defense. Whether you have been arrested for narcotics/drug crimes, theft, DWI, fraud or domestic violence, we will attack the prosecution's case with resolve. Our firm also represents clients with bench warrants, warrants, probation violations, appeals, expunctions and nondisclosures. We also have experience in juvenile crimes and provide families with juvenile criminal representation.

When fighting criminal accusations, retaining the services of a defense attorney as soon as possible is strongly recommended. When work is started immediately after an arrest, there can be opportunities to seek a reduction in charges, case dismissal or other favorable resolution to your case. Your attorney will also have a better chance of locating and interviewing potential defense witnesses. Our firm will quickly get to work on your case and look for ways to minimize the charges you are facing and prevent a guilty verdict.

Criminal Charges

An arrest for any kind of criminal act is extremely serious and can have harsh consequences, including jail time, fines, many hours of community service and mandatory psychological counseling. There may be additional penalties depending on the nature of the crime, such as asset seizure, driver's license suspension and a court order to register as a sex offender. If this is your first offense, you will also end up with a criminal record that will affect your employment options, security clearances and your ability to obtain certain types of professional licenses.

The prosecution will have access to a significant amount of resources when pursuing a conviction in your case, which is why it makes sense to have the best representation possible. A knowledgeable criminal lawyer will significantly improve your chances of a successful conclusion to your legal situation. We know that anyone who has been charged with a criminal offense is in a precarious position, and will work with unwavering determination to protect your freedom and future.
