Criminal Issues & Immigration
Criminal Defense Attorney for Immigrants in Los Angeles
If you are a non-citizen living in California and are charged with or convicted of certain crimes, you may face deportation, exclusion, loss of your visa or green card, and even denial of U.S. citizenship. As both criminal law and immigration law are very intricate in their own right, the merging of the two areas of law can prove to be extremely complex, especially for one facing criminal charges.
It is in your best interest to contact a criminal defense lawyer in Los Angeles if you are facing immigration issues related to criminal charges, as a lawyer will be able to navigate your legal proceedings and possibly secure an advantageous outcome to your case!
Assisting Immigrants with Criminal Records
If you possess a criminal record, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security will likely argue that you no longer deserve the privileges afforded to immigrants. Among other penalties, this can mean prompt deportation, no matter the length of time you have been living in the U.S. Even if you have a wife and children, it will not preclude them from forcing you to leave. If you are to avoid a criminal record, you must first avoid a conviction, and an attorney can fight on your behalf in your criminal case in an effort to make that a reality.
