Miami Immigration Defense Attorneys
Defending U.S. Immigration Status
If you are in the U.S. as a foreign national, being arrested or convicted of a crime in a Florida state or federal court could lead to more than just a fine or time in jail. Your legal immigrant status could be revoked as well, leading to your swift deportation from the country. Jeffrey S. Weiner, P.A. has the necessary experience as a Miami immigration defense attorney to understand the special circumstances that surround an individual on immigrant status facing criminal prosecution.
Comprehensive bilingual legal team working for you
Our bilingual legal team works with professional legal translators and forensic interpreters to gather and prepare the necessary documents and other evidence needed for a strong and effective defense. We work to make sure an arrest does not result in serious negative consequences, such as:
- Cancellation of visas and work permits
- Denial of re-entry
- Denial of application for citizenship/naturalization
In addition to general criminal violations of a state or federal criminal statute, certain offenses are unique to immigrants and can lead to an immediate ICE detainment and instigation of deportation proceedings. These offenses include:
- Entering the country illegally
- Being presently in the country illegally, such as on an expired visa or due to a change in status
- Providing falsified documentation
- Voting illegally in U.S. elections
Don’t let older arrests may back to haunt you
It may not be a current arrest or conviction that attracts the notice of U.S. immigration officials. Sometimes it is an old offense that comes to the attention of the government which triggers the initiation of removal proceedings or other official action. The offense at issue may even be a decades-old minor offense that occurred when the individual was a juvenile. At Jeffrey S. Weiner, P.A., we apply our skills and experience to make sure our clients are not unfairly treated for outdated or minor offenses that do not reflect the type of person they are and the contributions they have made to this country.
