Client Hires Mr. Feyzjou In Feb 2014 To Avoid Going Into Custody And Getting Deported. Successful Result. Teamwork.

The story of Mr. Ojeda is interesting and very common. Often, a man or women gets arrested for domestic violence and they immediately plead guilty.  In this case, Mr. Ojeda was involved in an unfortunate act of domestic violence in November 2008. On his initial court date, he pled guilty in an attempt to just come home and resume his relationship with his girlfriend. However, it wasn’t as easy as it sounded. When he was released, he had a hard time finding a job, had trouble in his relationship and did not comply with the terms and conditions of his probation. Therefore, on Dec 15, 2008, he was unable to attend his Domestic Violence classes and he was terminated from probation. A warrant was issued for his arrest.  Several weeks later, with his former attorney, he appeared in court and asked to be reinstated. Yet, he failed to do his classes and in Feb 2009, he was once again kicked out of additional classes he was required to do.

Several years went by and Mr. Ojeda was too nervous to come to court. Eventually, he got the courage to get to court several years later. On February 5, 2014, he forced himself to walk back into court and add the case on calendar. Our office was not yet retained at this point.  Mr. Ojeda used the services of a public defender and tried to explain what had caused him to fall apart over the years. The public defender was then appointed to assist him on Valentines day, February 14, 2014. On that date, Mr. Ojeda agreed once again that he failed to do his domestic violence classes, as well as his weekend community service.  His warrant was recalled and he was ordered to do 180 days of jail. Mr. Ojeda didn’t exactly know what was going on, he sensed something was wrong and heard the Judge say that he was now ordered to do 180 days in jail. Nervous and scared, he believed he had no choice but to agree. He was then given one week to turn himself in on February 21, 2014. If you click on the link below, you can follow the highlighted portions of the attached records confirming these dates.

When Mr. Ojeda came home to his wife, he explained what had happened in court and that he was ordered to surrender in a weeks’s time. This was a horrific Valentines day for Mr. Ojeda because when he came home, he realized that by next week he would be in jail and ultimately deported. Indeed, Mr. Ojeda is what is commonly referred to as an Undocumented Alien. In this day and age, ICE (Immigration Customs and Enforcement) will deport those accused of domestic violence. Mr. Ojeda was then referred to our office for evaluation.

On February 21, 2014, attorney Kia Feyzjou appeared in court with Mr. Ojeda. Mr. Ojeda was advised to bring all of his employment records from when he was employed to substantiate the great impact the surrender and unfortunate deportation that this would cause his family. We appeared in court with over 1000 pages of documents, evidencing Mr. Ojeda’s arrival to the USA when he was months old.

Ultimately, the Judge and Prosecutor agreed to give Mr. Ojeda a final break to complete his classes and work release requirements. Despite having been on probation since 2008, having failed to essentially do anything with his case, we were able to successfully persuade the Court to grant him one last opportunity to demonstrate that he is a changed man.

At the Kia Law Firm, our focus is not just on the client, but his family as well. We realize that clients need white-glove treatment, that people make mistakes and can show that they are willing to change.

Mr. Ojeda has obtained a final change in remaining in this country and has avoided what would have been immediate deportation to a foreign country that he left when he was an infant.

Client Arrested For Felony Theft Charges. All Charges Dismissed In Jan 2014

Our client, Mr. Campos, was arrested for a felony theft arrest and he was released on $20,000 bail. Ultimately, the prosecutor charged Mr. Campos with a misdemeanor theft charge. Mr. Campos retained the Kia Law Firm to represent him. On his behalf, we were successful to persuade the court to give Mr. Campos an opportunity to attend some classes and return with proof that he completed them. Over the prosecutor’s objection, the Judge in this case agreed to dismiss the charge against Mr. Campos. Essentially, this is not an expungement. This is a complete dismissal of the charges. Mr. Campos pled guilty to the theft charge, however, a guilty plea alone without being sentenced is beneficial to the Defendant. Since Mr. Campos was never sentenced, he was able to get his case dismissed in what is commonly referred to as “formal diversion”. This is a unique and rare opportunity to get a glimpse of what a formal diversion process is. A client may plead guilty at first, however, upon successful completion of certain terms and conditions, a client can return and have all of the charges dismissed. Unlike an expungement, successful completion of formal diversion leaves no marks on your record. You have never been convicted of any charges, therefore, on any direct application for employment to any state agency or for public licensure, someone who has successfully complied with the terms and conditions of formal diversion can state “no”, to any questions asking if they have been convicted of any misdemeanors. In Mr. Campos’ case, he is now able to obtain his public licensure in his field without any unnecessary roadblocks by the licensing state agency.
