Criminal Court and Related Proceedings

When non-citizens are accused of crimes they face drastic consequences that are not applicable to U.S. citizens. Immigrant criminal defendants – especially those considering plea agreements with the state – need to be aware of much more than what criminal sentence they face. Our firm provides a variety of services in this area for individuals and attorneys, including:

  • Advisals to criminal defense attorneys and public defenders about the immigration consequences of criminal charges and convictions
