Criminal and Immigration Law: Defending and Preserving Immigrants' Rights

The crossover between immigration and criminal law is one of the most complex and technical areas of law today. Achieving success requires in depth knowledge of the intersection between immigration and criminal law in order to get positive results.

The attorneys at the Law Office of Carlos A. Cruz specialize in protecting the rights of clients criminally charged while ensuring their future eligibility for immigration relief. Through our skillful advocacy, we've been able to successfully avoid immigration consequences of criminal charges for clients in many cases, including those involving assault, domestic violence, and theft. While every case is different and particular to its own facts, our lawyers have an impressive track record of success with these cases. To our clients, our dual experience with criminal and immigration law is an invaluable asset when dealing with criminal charges and their immigration consequences.

Post-Criminal-Conviction Relief

Where because of a criminal conviction, deportation cannot be avoided or relief is unobtainable under immigration law, post-conviction relief in criminal court may be the only pathway to legalization.

The particular form of post conviction relief appropriate in a case depends on a variety of factors, including: the date of the conviction, the petitioner's immigration history, and the benefit sought.

Our attorneys know the law and understand what it takes to achieve criminal sentence reduction, dismissal, expungement and withdraw of a guilty plea in the appropriate case. If you have a criminal conviction that prevents you from pursuing your legalization, contact us now for a consultation and full-exploration of your options.
