IMMIGRATION CONSEQUENCE MITIGATION
Immigration consequences not only affect a defendant, but that person’s innocent (and often US citizen) children and families. Consequences can include deportation or removal from the US of a parent or family member, or the denial of immigration benefits, such as US citizenship and lawful permanent resident status to which a defendant would otherwise be eligible to receive.
Our criminal defense and immigration attorneys are experienced working with prosecutors, judges and the court systems to adjust charges, reduce sentencing or get cases dismissed to achieve the best possible outcome considering immigration consequences.
