Criminal Defense of Immigrants
Criminal charges can cause harsh and permanent immigration consequences for non-citizen defendants, whether they be undocumented or hold some other status. Even the most minor offenses may have a serious impact on your eligibility for lawful status, whether that be as a TPS or DACA recipient, or applicant for legal permanent residence or citizenship. Indeed, most plea bargains that are beneficial to defendants who are citizens have life changing consequences for non-citizens, even in the most minor of cases.
We work to resolve cases in a manner that is not only beneficial to our clients, but also in a way that minimizes the impact a criminal case may have on our non-citizen clients.
We also represent non-citizens in post-conviction relief cases where our clients have received ineffective assistance of counsel that has resulted in adverse immigration consequences.
