Immigration Lawyers in Salt Lake City, UT
For immigrants, the stress of facing criminal charges contains an added layer of concern. Criminal convictions, and in some case even simply being charged with a crime, can result in denial of your green card or citizenship application, or worse, detention or deportation.
What makes matters worse is that criminal defense attorneys are often unaware of the immigration consequences of criminal charges. You may be offered a plea bargain that seems like a quick and easy resolution of your criminal case, only to find yourself in deportation proceedings. Further, criminal court judges and prosecutors are under no obligation to help you understand how your case may impact your immigration status.
If you are charged with a crime, talk to an immigration attorney before accepting a plea bargain. Certain criminal offenses, even if they are misdemeanors, can result in deportation.
