If you are not a U.S. citizen, it is important that you consult with a competent immigration attorney right away as soon as you are involved in a criminal matter. How your criminal case is handled can directly impact your immigration status in the United States. You should have both your criminal and immigration situation reviewed together if you become involved in any criminal issue. Even a minor criminal issue may affect immigration status, including a "dismissed" case. Our firm works closely with criminal attorneys to eliminate or reduce the impact of a criminal matter on one’s immigration status.
