Analysis of Criminal Activity

Fort Worth, Texas — Dallas, Texas

Allegations and charges of criminal activity can derail all varieties of immigration proceedings. Charges ranging from DUI to homicide can alert immigration officials and other government agencies, leading to "ICE hold" status whereby alleged offenders are passed to immigration officials after trials, hearings and other proceedings.

The Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas, immigration law firm of Chavez & Valko works with both immigrants and criminal defense attorneys working with immigrants:

  • As an immigrant, you could lose everything if you have been charged with a crime in the U.S. An experienced immigration attorney can protect your rights in court, keep your record clean and help you stay in the U. S.
  • As a criminal defense attorney, you can help your clients facing possible deportation by working with an experienced immigration lawyer.

If you are an immigrant accused of a crime, or are a criminal attorney with questions regarding immigration law, we can help. We have helped dozens of individuals and lawyers fight for immigration rights.
