PROTECTING IMMIGRANTS FROM DEPORTATION

What should you do if you are being threatened with criminal deportation? In the U.S., a non-citizen could be subject to deportation back to their home country if they have been convicted of certain crimes, including smuggling aliens into the country, perjury, an aggravated felony, or a high speed flight from an immigration checkpoint. Typically, a person convicted of a crime like this could be facing time in prison and heavy penalties. For a non-citizen, the consequences are much more life-altering; he or she could lose the life he or she has made in the U.S. permanently. At our firm, we use our extensive understanding of both immigration and criminal law to fight for individuals like you.

The attorneys at the firm are members of the New York State Bar Association, U.S. District Courts, Eastern and Southern Districts and more. They come from diverse and illustrious backgrounds and can address all types of cases at state and federal level, providing service in both English and Spanish as needed. Their cases have been featured in the National Law Review, the New York Law Journal, the New York Times, the New York Jury Verdict Reporter and more.
