Immigration and Criminal Convictions

Immigration and criminal conviction are closely related because whenever a noncitizen is convicted, he becomes eligible for deportation and removal. To ensure that it doesn’t happen to you if or when you are convicted of a serious crime, you should contact the law offices of George W. Abbes. Due to the far-reaching experience and in-depth knowledge of the latest law, Mr. Abbes can ensure that you don’t get removed from the U.S. and have a chance at reducing your sentence or punishment.

Before we go on and explain how we can help you, let’s have a look at the key consequences of criminal conviction that are often swift:

  • Deportation from the U.S.
  • Exclusion from future admissibility to the U.S.
  • Ineligibility to obtain U.S. citizenship via the naturalization process
  • Ineligibility to qualify for deferred action or asylum
  • Loss of the Green Card or Visa

If you are convicted of a crime, you may face the possibility of dispersing your family as a result of deportation or exclusion. Do not let this happen to you and contact the law offices of George W. Abbes. We urge you to bring a full copy of the criminal documents with you as it will help us determine how your criminal history can probably harm your immigration case.

When you retain the services of Mr. Abbes, he will ensure that a mistake or a false allegation doesn’t lead to deportation, tear you apart from your family and make you lose everything you have worked so hard for. As soon as you are charged or convicted of a crime, you should contact us to help you out of the messy situation.

It’s recommended that you hire us early on as it will allow us to intervene to resolve any and all charges against you or we will work to exonerate you.

We can also appeal the conviction and serve as your defense counsel in a crime related case.
