Crimmigration — The Intersection of Criminal and Immigration Laws
Our firm also routinely co-counsels with criminal defense attorneys across the country regarding the immigration consequences of criminal convictions to obtain better outcomes for their non-citizen clients. It is especially important that foreign nationals charged with crimes obtain a criminal defense team who has extensive experience with immigration law, because even misdemeanor convictions can lead to deportation, detention without bond, denial of naturalization or exclusion from re-entry after having traveled abroad.
