In recent years, the term “crimmigration” has gained prominence due to the increased deportations effectuated by the Obama administration. With the Trump administration, we predict that thousands of families in Southern California, and millions across the U.S., may be at risk of losing a loved one to deportation.
If you are not a U.S. citizen and are either facing criminal charges, or if have suffered a conviction, it is absolutely critical that you obtain counsel who understands BOTH criminal and immigration law. Green-card holders (legal permanent residents) can lose their legal status here if convicted of certain crimes, even misdemeanors. This means that even a minor domestic incident, a baggie of cocaine, or simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time can lead to deportation proceedings.
If you or a loved one has a prior conviction that has prevented them from achieving legal status in the United States, there is still hope! Martin Lijtmaer has successfully cleared convictions for clients paving the path towards legal status, and saving them from deportation or permanent inadmissibility to the United States.
