If you are not a U.S. Citizen, criminal charges can have grave consequences. The attorneys at Alin Cintean, Attorney at Law and Richard Dudek, Attorney at Law. have a wealth of knowledge in immigration law and also work closely with immigration consultants on every case involving a non-citizen.
As immigration laws are constantly changing, it is necessary to have attorneys that are fully aware of all immigration consequences that you may face during the criminal case process. Presently, any non-citizen that has a domestic violence case or any offense involving a child is deportable. Anyone who has not been in this country for more than 5 years that and been charged with a CMT (crime of moral turpitude punishable up to one year) also faces deportation. There is also a zero tolerance concerning drug charges with non-citizens.
If you are a non-citizen and charged with a criminal offense, it is imperative to hire experienced, dedicated counsel to protect your rights. Immigration concerns may dictate the entire defense strategy in a criminal case and only experienced defense counsel can protect you.
If you have already suffered a conviction that is affecting your immigration status it is not necessarily too late to act.
