We provide tough, effective post-conviction relief and criminal defense and specialize in representing defendants who are not yet citizens of the United States. Non-citizens must hire a criminal defense attorney who also understands the complex immigration laws to either negotiate a plea bargain that will successfully negate or minimize any adverse immigration consequences, or fight for an outright acquittal to prevent mandatory deportation and permanent exclusion from the United States. We also specialize in the representation of non-citizens who already have convictions and need help to eliminate the negative consequences of the convictions and fight so future immigration benefits can still be achieved.

How do I choose a lawyer?
Consider the following:
- Comfort Level
- - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
- - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
- - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
- - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?
Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?
Here are a few to get you started:
- How long have you been in practice?
- How many cases like mine have you handled?
- How often do you settle cases out of court?
- What are your fees and costs?
- What are the next steps?
Want to check lawyer discipline?
It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:
- Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
- Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
- Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
