Immigration

Representing noncitizen criminal defendants often requires an entirely different approach in defense strategy than would otherwise be employed if the client were a U.S. citizen. Knowing which criminal offenses and dispositions are safe or provide safer havens for immigration purposes will vary depending on your client's immigration status, pending criminal charges, and previous criminal convictions. This section provides resources to assist in identifying and avoiding, or at least minimizing, adverse immigration consequences for noncitizen clients.
