Criminal Defense Lawyers for the Arab-American Community

Being charged with a crime in the Arab-American Community can cause unique problems – such as cultural misunderstandings, mistrust of the justice system, and even discrimination.

The Judicial System Often Discriminates Against Those of Arab Dissent

It has been shown that people have immigrated to the Detroit area from the Middle East in large numbers because of the automobile industry. Arab immigrants have been hired in huge numbers by the auto industry since the time of Henry Ford. Despite the large and flourishing Arab community in Michigan, discrimination and bias still exist with courts and prosecutors who are supposed to administer justice blindly. Defense lawyers for the Arab community must be familiar with the unique challenges and often unfair treatment some people receive at the hands of law enforcement officers and courts.

The Arab-American community faces significant problems today.  The issues are not unlike those suffered by Japanese-Americans during World War II.  The Arabs in the United States – many who are, or have become American citizens, face misunderstandings, discrimination, and possible violence because of a relatively small number of radicals in the Middle East.  This is blatantly unfair for innocent people to suffer because of others’ actions; however, this is the reality faced by Arab-Americans. To be most effective, defense lawyers must understand these issues and know how to counteract them in court.

If a member of the Arab community is being investigated or charged with a crime, it is essential that you immediately seek the best legal representation available from a Criminal Defense Firm that is not afraid to stand up and fight for your protection and fair treatment. The defense team with LEWIS & DICKSTEIN, P.L.L.C. is comprised of elite criminal lawyers with experience defending members of the Arab-American community.  When a person is facing the potential of a criminal record, jail or prison, lengthy probation, excessive fines and costs, and possible deportation, it is important to look to a law firm with experience, a strong reputation, and a track record of aggressively defending members of the Arab-American community.
