Newark Criminal-Immigration Attorneys
Protecting the Rights of Immigrants Nationwide
At Murray Osorio PLLC, our criminal immigration attorneys in Newark understand the significant discretion law enforcement and federal authorities possess when it comes to deporting immigrants accused or convicted of crimes. That's why our dedicated team is committed to utilizing our expertise and knowledge of the law to assist clients with various criminal-immigration matters. We recognize that being arrested is an inherently stressful experience, and when combined with the risk of deportation, immigrants facing criminal charges require specialized legal representation to safeguard their visas or green cards.
Understanding Inadmissible & Deportable Crimes
Inadmissible and deportable crimes refer to specific criminal convictions that can result in the loss of an immigrant's ability to re-enter the country after departure, become a U.S. citizen, or apply for permanent residence or an adjustment of status. For immigrants, criminal matters are particularly complex since accepting a plea deal to reduce charges can still jeopardize their immigration status.
The following crimes can render an immigrant inadmissible or deportable:
- Drug crimes
- Firearm offenses
- Domestic violence
- Aggravated felonies
- Crimes of moral turpitude
