Immigration Law and Criminal law are closely interrelated. A charge, an admission of a crime, a plea, or conviction can severely impact an immigrant’s status. It can have serious consequences often resulting in an individual being mandatorily detained, removed or permanently barred from returning to the United States. An immigrant, facing any criminal issues, must consult with an immigration attorney in addition to obtaining competent criminal defense counsel.
We often help our clients with the following:
- Consultation on Immigration Consequences of Crimes
- Analysis and assistance to criminal defense attorneys on plea agreements and negotiations with prosecutors
- Immigration training for members of the Criminal Defense Bar
- Expert Witness Services in criminal cases and in Habeas hearings to vacate involuntary guilty pleas and explain immigration consequences of the plea/s entered.
