The evolving nature of Immigration law has made it imperative that immigrants involved in the criminal justice system understand the immigration ramifications of their situation. We have worked with individuals, criminal defence attorneys and Judges to seek solutions that would not affect our client’s immigration status in the United States. Sometimes, that has resulted in taking cases to jury trials—if and when that is the only avenue available to our clients. Talk to An Immigration Attorney who also practices criminal defence.
