Criminal Justice Attorney Fabian Meneses at Meneses Legal Helps Clients Avoid Penalties that Threaten to Ruin their Livelihoods

Tijuana, Mexico, 20th July 2022, ZEXPRWIREIn an effort to protect his clients’ livelihoods, Fabian Meneses at Meneses Legal provides legal assistance to help alleged offenders avoid criminal charges that could lead to long-term financial ruin.

According to Mexico’s Federal Penal Code, the penalties for some crimes are as much as 30 years in prison and a fine worth up to 8 years of the accused’s income. Such penalties are intentionally harsh to disincentivize criminals such as cartel members from contributing to Tijuana’s high crime index. Unfortunately, these penalties also affect countless travelers who aren’t wary of Mexico’s laws. Without legal assistance from a cross-border attorney like Fabian Meneses of Meneses Legal, many of these travelers end up with criminal convictions that make it difficult for them to get hired or take out home loans. As a result, their quality of life diminishes significantly.

When asked whether he thinks Mexico should lower its penalties for certain crimes to prevent people’s livelihoods from being lost, Fabian responded, “I don’t think that’s the right solution. The penalties mentioned in Mexico’s Federal Penal Code have been established after careful deliberation, and if you consider the crimes they’re associated with, it makes sense that they’re harsh. In other words, the only way to stop travelers from losing their livelihoods is for criminal defense lawyers to educate them on Mexico’s laws and ensure they get the best possible defense in court. That’s where we come in.”

Fabian and his team at Meneses Legal are well-versed in Mexican laws on an array of cross-border crimes. This includes drug-related crimes such as drug possession and the unauthorized sale of prescription drugs. They also specialize in defending clients facing gun crime charges such as the transportation of firearms across the US-Mexico border. The team has over forty years of experience between them and is well-regarded among its past clients for the high quality of their legal services.

Meneses Legal operates in multiple locations across Mexico, including Sonoyta, San Ysidro, and Baja California. They have offices in both Tijuana, Mexico, and San Diego, USA, and offer legal services in both English and Spanish.
