Fight Deportation Based On Criminal Convictions

Cleveland, Ohio Immigration Attorneys Serving Immigration Courts Throughout the Country

The U.S. Constitution guarantees your right to a lawyer in removal or deportation proceedings.  It is important that you avail yourself of your right to counsel if you have been accused of any kind of crime and are not a citizen OR if you are in removal proceedings because of a criminal case.

At the law firm of Philip Eichorn Co., LPA, we represent foreign nationals all over the country.  We fight their deportation cases vigorously.  The most important strategy is to fight the initial charge.  If you simply admit that the criminal conviction exists or that it is a removable offense, you have two feet out the door.  We routinely challenge the conviction itself and challenge that it supports removal.

Dedicated to Protecting the Rights of People

You may be deported for many criminal activities, including but not limited to convictions for:

  • Crimes of Moral Turpitude
    • Theft and receiving stolen property
    • Forgery
    • Fraud
  • Aggravated Felonies
    • Sex offenses such as rape, sexual battery, gross sexual impostion and sexual abuse of a minor
    • Crimes of Violence

  • Firearms violations such as illegal possesion or improper handling of a firearm or unlawful discharge of a firearm

Qualified and Experienced Deportation Defense

Our law firm's experience with deportation defense strategies include aggressively defending the initial  charges and forcing the government to meet their burden of proof.  If the immigration judge finds the foreign national subject to deportation (or deportable), there are defenses/mitigation, or types of  relief from removal available.  We can help you and your family through this process and many times get you proper and lawful immigration status.
