He was not arrested. He also received a ticket for an open container of which was not his and located in the passenger area. He took a breath test and was cleared. So, he has to appear in court in March for these two tickets. I am seeking an attorney to speak on his behalf and have fees reduced or possibly waived. Would you be able to assist us and should we be concerned? If an attorney assist him in court he shouldn't need to answer any questions right, I wouldn't want him to possibly incrimidate himself.

A: Definitely get him an attorney. Criminal activity can impact an immigration case, so concern is not unwarranted. Contact your local bar association for a referral to an attorney familiar with this type of law.
