Reduction & Removal of Charges in Immigration Cases
Queens & Brooklyn Immigration Lawyer
If you are facing
charges for a crime which can result in your deportation or exclusion from the United States,
all is not necessarily lost. With the help of the right
New York City immigration lawyer, you may have several options available to help you avoid the
effect of conviction on your immigration status. In certain cases, your legal counsel may be able to have your case dismissed;
for example, if there is insufficient or inadmissible evidence, or where
your rights have been violated during the proceedings against you.
Where a removal of charges is not possible, your attorney may be able to
achieve a reduction of charges, which can negate the risk to your permanent
resident status. Usually, the prosecution has some latitude regarding
which charges are filed and your attorney can negotiate to have those
which may affect your residency rejected in favor of those which do not.
If the prosecution refuses to concede despite good cause, your lawyer
may go directly to the judge to pursue a more appropriate execution of justice.
We represent individuals throughout Queens, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Manhattan,
