Our Experienced Criminal Defense Attorneys Can Help
Many immigrants are surprised to learn that certain misdemeanor crimes are considered deportable felonies under U.S. immigration law. A conviction for domestic violence, assault, theft, fraud, drunk driving or drug possession can lead to removal proceedings.
Our skilled defense lawyers are former prosecutors who can challenge the criminal charges and address the immigration consequences of a guilty plea or conviction at trial. We work to dismiss the charges or reduce the charges to an offense that will not trigger deportation. We are prepared to fight for you at trial if your immigration status is in jeopardy.
