Criminal and Immigration Lawyer:

We Specialize in Both!

Facing a criminal charge can be a frightening experience. However, if you’re not a U.S. citizen, the consequences can be even more serious. A criminal conviction could jeopardize your immigration status, potentially leading to deportation. This is where having a criminal and immigration lawyer becomes crucial.

The Complex Intersection of Criminal and Immigration and Why You Need a Criminal and Immigration Lawyer

The U.S. immigration system considers many factors when evaluating a person’s immigration status. Criminal convictions, even seemingly minor ones, can have a significant impact. Certain offenses can trigger mandatory deportation, while others can make it difficult to obtain a visa, green card, or citizenship. Understanding these complexities is vital, especially when facing a criminal charge.

Why You Need Both a Criminal Defense Lawyer and an Immigration Attorney

Here’s why having both types of legal expertise is essential:

1. Understanding the Overlap: A criminal defense lawyer familiar with immigration law can advise you on the potential immigration consequences of a criminal charge. They can explore options to minimize the impact on your immigration status.

For example, certain charges might be eligible for expungement (record sealing) after successful completion of probation. An attorney with knowledge of both criminal and immigration law can navigate this process and explain how it could benefit your immigration case.

2. Strategic Defense: Knowing the immigration implications allows your criminal defense attorney to build a stronger defense strategy. This could involve negotiating a plea bargain that doesn’t carry deportation risks.

For instance, your attorney might argue for alternative sentencing options like community service or rehabilitation programs, depending on the specific charge and your immigration status.

3. Streamlined Process: The Hansen Law Firm offers the unique advantage of having both criminal defense and immigration expertise under one roof – The Hansen Law Firm and The Immigration Legal Center. This eliminates the need to coordinate between separate legal teams, saving you time, stress, and potential inconsistencies in your defense.
