If you have been convicted of an aggravated felony, certain misdemeanors or crimes of moral turpitude or violence, you may be placed into deportation or removal hearings. We will thoroughly evaluate your criminal conviction to determine if you are deportable. Additionally, it may be necessary to try to vacate or modify your criminal conviction by filing the appropriate motion in the criminal court. If the motion is granted, a change of your criminal plea is possible and you may avoid the type of conviction that would otherwise make you deportable or ineligible for certain forms of relief such as Asylum, Withholding of Removal, Convention Against Torture, Cancellation of Removal and Adjustment of Status.
