Immigration Consequences of a Criminal Conviction

If you are a non-citizen of the United States, avoiding any sort of criminal conviction is extremely important. U.S. immigration law requires most immigrants to demonstrate “good moral character,” which in practice means not having a criminal record. Being convicted of a violent felony, a serious criminal offense, or even certain misdemeanors could result in someone being targeted for removal. In these high-stakes scenarios, you will need a lawyer who understands how immigration and criminal defense law intersect. We are well-versed in how to effectively handle these matters and help you avoid taking any action, such as a plea deal, that might inadvertently jeopardize your future in the country. We will make every effort to avoid a conviction and secure an outcome that preserves your immigration status. If necessary, our firm also offers tenacious deportation defense representation. 

You do not have to face criminal charges alone. Call (760) 280-7900 or contact us online to discuss your case with us.
