Setting Aside a Criminal Conviction Top-Rated Legal Counsel

Non-United States Citizens & Resident Aliens

Certain criminal charges (aggravated felonies and certain misdemeanors involving moral turpitude and controlled substances) carry serious immigration consequences and can result in deportation proceedings for foreign nationals in the United States. Criminal charges may also be brought for overstaying a legal entry into the United States or for re-entering illegally to the United States. Certain convictions may also bar the entry or re-entry to the United States by non-U.S. citizens.

The Miami attorneys in our firm work with top immigration lawyers in South Florida and throughout the nation. The best results are often obtained when we are retained to set aside criminal convictions that were not properly obtained by the prosecution, either after trial or after a plea. The immigration lawyers with whom we work are familiar with the immigration consequences of criminal convictions; not all immigration lawyers are. By working as a team on our clients’ behalf, our clients have the best chance of remaining in the United States.
