What happens when you are a non-citizen charged with a crime?
Many non-citizens plead guilty to crimes without realizing their subsequent conviction can bar them from citizenship, get them locked up by immigration officials, or get them deported. If you, a non-citizen, are facing criminal charges, you need both a seasoned criminal defense attorney as well as a knowledgeable immigration attorney to evaluate the potential immigration consequences in your case. These legal experts, known as “crimmigration” attorneys, have experience advising and representing individuals, especially non-citizens, facing criminal charges.
