Crimmigration Lawyer with the Experience You Need
Green card or visa holders face deportation if convicted of a serious crime. One of the most important developments in criminal defense law today is the convergence of criminal and immigration law, or “crimmigration” law.
If you are a green card or visa holder, you face severe consequences to crimes such as theft, assault, OVI/DUI and drug offenses. Usually the first priority in these cases is avoiding deportation but there are other concerns too, such as maintaining eligibility for naturalization and maintaining one’s ability to get in and out of the country without being held. A guilty plea to a crime or an aggravated felony could result in deportation or make you inadmissible to the United States.
If you are a non-citizen who has been charged with a crime, you need an attorney who understands the immigration consequences of a criminal conviction. Crimmigration lawyers represent visa and green card holders in state courts accused of a crime. They must have a full grasp on how criminal state law interacts with federal immigration law, and Ashley Jones has the experience in criminal defense law you seek.
