In order to make an informed decision about going to trial, accepting a plea bargain or pursuing an alternative rehabilitative option, you need to understand the potential impact of your decision on your immigration status. We will make sure you get the answers you need, whether that involves our attorneys consulting with outside counsel who are experts in immigration law or directing the client to an immigration attorney to represent their needs. Either way our lawyers will look to protect your rights to citizenship.
Carefully Analyzing Complex Legal Circumstances
Many have claimed that immigration law is second only to tax law in terms of its complexity, and the complexity only increases when criminal law is included in the analysis.
