Hard-Hitting Defense for a Wide Range of Criminal Charges
Immigration Consequences of Criminal Activity:
If you are a not a citizen who has pled guilty to a crime and you believe that you were not properly advised as to how the conviction will effect your immigration status, contact The Lawrence Legal Group, LLC, immediately to discuss your rights.
Hope is not lost! In 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a precedential decision regarding the complex nature of the relationship between criminal convictions and immigration status. In Padilla v. Kentucky, the Court ruled that a noncitizen accused of a crime is entitled to accurate legal advice regarding the immigration consequences of his or her guilty plea. In the event a noncitizen defendant has not been adequately advised, the defendant may have grounds to vacate the guilty plea based on an ineffective assistance of counsel claim.
Did You Previously Enter A Guilty Plea Without Understanding How Your Immigration Status Can be Effected?
Are you in the United States as a permanent resident, visitor, or without legal status? Did you know that even a single criminal conviction can bar you from certain immigration benefits and even lead to your removal from the United States? We understand the complex relationship between criminal activity and its effects on immigration status. From crimes involving moral turpitude to drug possession, accepting a seemingly favorable plea to certain charges could result in an inability to adjust status, mandatory detention, and removal from the United States.
