You don’t have to lose your immigration status because of a conviction
It’s not the end, let us help
Are you a non-citizen or legal permanent resident with a criminal conviction? Sometimes a minor offense or misdemeanor conviction can cause a non-citizen to be deportable or disqualify them from legal status, citizenship or other immigration benefits.
We may be able to help you if you have a criminal conviction and would like to apply for legal status, citizenship, or reduce the risk of deportation.
We will review your criminal record, and see if there are any immigration waivers, or post-conviction relief to reduce, vacate or expunge your conviction in criminal court.
Below are the types of instances when you may want to speak to our immigration lawyer:
Reductions of convictions from a felony to a misdemeanor
If you have successfully completed your probation on a felony conviction, you may be eligible to reduce your felony conviction to a misdemeanor. Our office can evaluate this option with you to see if it can help you.
Motions for withdrawal of plea
Sometimes it is possible to withdraw the plea and negotiate a different plea with less harsh immigration consequences. We can review your case to see if this would assist you.
Sometimes a pardon may be the only option for people with no other convictions within the last ten years and an otherwise clean record. Our office can assist you with this process to present your best case.
Expungements can be helpful in certain discretionary cases. Contact our office for us to evaluate if this would be useful for you.
Vacating Criminal Convictions
For a criminal defendant who was not properly advised of the immigration consequences of their guilty or no contest plea, vacating their conviction and negotiating a conviction with reduced immigration risks can be helpful. We can review your case to see if this option is available to you.
