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, Rockland County and Westchester County.
