At the Law Office of Alejandro Barraza Paez, APC, we understand what it is like to seek help during trying times, and be wary and scared of those individuals offering to help us. We understand the feeling of not understand what is going on around us, which is typically followed with a feeling that everything around us is moving way too fast. Finally, we understand the urgency to seek answers because our questions keep us up at night.

Here, at the Law Office of Alejandro Barraza Paez, APC, we understand and we want to help.

Advocating Effectively For Clients With Mental Health Disorders Within Our Criminal Justice System.

One out every four Americans suffers from mental illness. The nineteen year daughter, diagnosed with major depressive disorder, using alcohol or drugs to cope with their inability to get out bed and feelings of agitation irritability, and angry outbursts over small trivial matters. The 29 year old soon, managing Schizophrenia, who may find themselves in situations that they are unable to understand and overcome because they simply can’t. The 48 year old mother, who was just diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, who would never hurt a fly, but suffers an episode that leaves their daughter, son, husband, mother, or best friend hurt. I am here to help you through this trying moment.

People with mental illnesses often end up incarcerated unjustly in jail and locked treatment facilities because they are vulnerable and misunderstood. Many police officers do not have the proper training to know how to effectively communicate with a mentally ill individual (especially if the mentally ill individual is going through an episode), and, as a result, they be arrested and charged instead of receiving treatment.

Fortunately, the California legislature have enacted laws that recognize that some individuals fall outside the criminal legal framework when it is determined that the alleged misconduct was the result of a legitimate mental health issue rather than malicious intent to commit a crime. If you or your loved one is being charged with a criminal offense, please contact me today.

Reuniting Families Within Our Chronically Changing U.S Immigration System.

One of the foundations of the U.S. immigration system is family unity — keeping families together — with the idea that doing so will strengthen our society and make its members more productive. The Law Office of Alejandro Barraza Paez APC is dedicated to bringing families together, and once together in the U.S., to keeping them here.

While there are legal paths to bringing family members to the U.S., the immigration system is challenging and complex to navigate. We advise husbands and wives, brothers and sisters, sons and daughters, parents and grandparents on how to achieve their short and long-term goals, and provide individualized representation for each client.

We begin by carefully analyzing your situation and recommending the best approach for you, because at the Law Office of Alejandro Barraza Paez APC., we are dedicated to providing individual attention and counsel to each and every client.

Denise Rich

Mr. Barraza is an unbelievably outstanding attorney! He really genuinely cares for his clients. He will argue and fight for you and not just collect pay and ask his clients to settle for plea bargains. Extremely hard working attorney. If you retain him you can rest assured you will be in amazing hands with a lawyer who does care. He saved my kid from a 15 year sentence. Thank you so much for your hard work Alejandro we truly appreciate it!
