Civil Lawsuits Arising from Criminal Cases

The Khachatourians Law Group is experienced in managing complex civil matters arising from criminal investigations and criminal filings.  The disposition of a criminal case may have collateral effects in a civil or regulatory proceeding.  Statements made in one court may be used for impeachment purposes in another court.  The civil case may trigger criminal exposure.  You cannot piecemeal the law. The facts of the case need to be evaluated taking into consideration the defendant’s potential criminal, civil, immigration, and licensing exposure.  The attorneys at the Khachatourians Law Group have the experience and success in defending criminal matters with civil and licensing collateral effects.  Some examples of civil lawsuits that may have a collateral criminal case are as follows:
