Will a Drug Conviction Bar Someone from Residency?
All criminal cases can have enormous immigration consequences for you, whether you're here on a visa, whether you're attempting to adjust your status and become a resident, or even to become a citizen. We see it time and time again, where clients come to us and they've entered into previous plea agreements for drug cases, and now they are facing deportation consequences. So, yes, if you are charged with any type of drug case, even if it's a simple possession, you need to seek counsel of an experienced criminal defense attorney that is also experienced in the immigration law and that is what our firm can offer you. We can advise you as to how best to resolve your criminal case and the type of immigration consequences that it might have on you and on your family.
