Non-citizens living in the United States with any type of visa, need sound advice from an attorney who can not only defend them against criminal charges but can also maneuver them through the potential immigration consequences.
Each year, criminal charges tear families apart because of the draconian impact on immigration status, resulting in a loss of legal status to remain in the United States, deportation proceedings or denial of re-entry into the United States.
Since 9-11, new laws have made it much easier for the government to deport individuals, especially undocumented aliens, while the application process to acquire legal status has become more difficult. You need to protect your immigration status from the consequences of a criminal charge.
For expert legal representation of foreign nationals, call attorney Robert Malove at 954-861-0384.
