No other area of the law changes with the frequency and speed of immigration law. Governed by a complex set of federal statutes, regulations, Supreme Court decisions and executive orders, immigration law is a living creature. At the Eichelberger Law Firm, PLLC, our Jackson immigration attorneys are proud to assist others who love America and want to be a part of her wonderful future.
Broad Experience Across a Range of Issues
Our firm also pride ourselves in our criminal defense work. Unfortunately, there are often immigration consequences for people involved in criminal proceedings. The intersection of criminal defense and immigration law, sometimes referred to as “crimmigration,” has become a much more crowded place over the last decade.
The United States Supreme Court has issued opinions requiring criminal defense attorneys to advise their clients of potential immigration consequences, and those consequences are not always clear. If you or a loved one are a noncitizen facing criminal charges, it is vitally important that you seek out counsel who can advise you of the consequences of a conviction prior to any guilty plea or trial.
If the removal (deportation) process has already begun, there are several things to bear in mind. For example, you may be represented by a lawyer, but the government is not required to provide you with one during that process. Additionally, there are methods to perhaps prevent deportation in certain circumstances, even in cases of conviction of some aggravated felonies. Those methods may not apply in every situation, however, and the facts of the case should be discussed in-depth with a Jackson immigration law attorney.
