Criminal Immigration Attorney

If you’re not a US citizen and you’re accused of a state or federal crime, you can face time in jail and even fines, but you may have to be deported back to the country from which you came from. We understand that your situation is unique, and with that being said, we want to make sure that we take every effort to work with you and make sure that you get the necessary help that is needed while working through our services and Law Offices that specialize in deportation and immigration issues. The issue that you’re having can leave you with indefinite detention away from the states indefinitely. This means you’re not able to return under any circumstances.

This is why we work to provide you with the specialized services to ensure that this does not happen, through our knowledgeable criminal and immigration lawyers.


  • Before criminal conviction;
  • In actual deportation or removal proceedings; and
  • In obtaining post-conviction relief to clear criminal records for immigrants in order to avoid or minimize adverse immigration consequences.

Refusal for a trip abroad, or criminal deportation can result if any of these come into play:

  • Leaves the United States for more than one year,
  • Is convicted of a "crime of moral turpitude" within five years of entering the United States.
  • Is convicted of two "crimes of moral turpitude" at any time,
  • Is convicted of an aggravated felony, including many felonies that hardly seem "aggravated" such as tax evasion.

You may be refused re-entry due to the consequences that they’ve set forth for the country, and the crime you’ve committed.


  • Aggravated felonies
  • Drug offenses
  • Fraud and other white collar crimes
  • Security/terrorism related crimes
  • Unauthorized stay
  • Unauthorized employment
  • Unauthorized entry attempt
  • Overstaying the limits of a visitor or student visa

While anything can arise, and difficulties can prove to be too much, many might choose to leave the country. If you’d like to stay and fight for the rights that you have to be within the country, then our deportation and immigration lawyers can help with this.
