Over the last decade, there have been many court challenges to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's treatment of criminal immigrants. Not all criminal defense attorneys track these changes or understand the severe consequences that immigrants face if they are convicted of a crime.
At Saenz-Rodriguez & Associates, we monitor the decisions coming from criminal courts, immigration courts and the U.S. circuit courts of appeal on criminal immigration matters. If you have been charged with a crime, we will protect your rights during criminal proceedings and defend your immigration status.
Protecting Your Immigration Status At All Costs
Without adequate legal representation, you could be placed into deportation proceedings, lose your student or exchange visitor status, or lose your job. Further, if you have left the United States, you may not be allowed to come back, even if you have your green card.
Our skilled immigration attorneys review every detail of the criminal charge, and work with the prosecutor to obtain a plea agreement that minimizes or eliminates any immigration consequence, protecting your immigration status at all costs.
We Handle Complex Criminal Immigration Issues
The consequences of a criminal conviction depend on whether the crime involves "moral turpitude" or "is classified as an aggravated felony." Both of these terms are subject to frequent change and redefinition. Because the courts are continually refining the meaning of these terms, it is important to conduct a thorough review of the charge, statute and police record with a trusted attorney.
Our Dallas, Texas, criminal immigration defense lawyers have extensive experience in this area with over 20 years of immigration law practice. We will help you understand your options and work with you to find a resolution. There is no "one-size-fits-all" solution or answer when an immigrant is charged with a crime. The right course of action for you depends upon your current immigration status, whether you have left the U.S. already, any history of criminal or immigration violations, and a great many other factors.
For a lawyer who understands immigration law thoroughly and will fight tirelessly for your best interests, choose Saenz-Rodriguez & Associates. Schedule an initial consultation for a personalized discussion about how we can help you. Call 214-646-1208.
