Criminal Attorney in Los Angeles – Immigration Subspecialty

If you are being represented by a criminal attorney in Los Angeles but have issues relating to immigration, the Law Offices of Henry A. Posada are specialists when it comes to advising lawyers representing immigrants accused of a crime. We are also here to help other immigrants deal with past convictions that might now be threatening their ability to remain in the United States. Regardless of our clients’ personal situation, we are here to fight for a positive outcome that avoids deportation.

It almost goes without saying that, in the present atmosphere, having a thoughtfully designed criminal defense strategy is especially important for foreign nationals who are accused of a crime. As United States immigration laws have tightened, the range of offenses that can either lead to removal or denial for permanent residence has increased. There is no way to sugarcoat the fact that the law with regards to immigrants is getting increasingly complex and difficult to navigate as the consequences for even petty crimes can be severe. Fortunately, our expertise in immigration law has allowed us to find inventive solutions for our clients that can help keep them on United States soil.

We also provide help to immigrants who are not currently charged with a crime but whose past legal problems are now resurfacing and threatening their legal immigration status. We have had a great deal of success involves a strategy called post-conviction relief, a legal mechanism that has been significantly strengthened under California Law in recent years. Using this pathway, individuals can have their prior offenses expunged from the record if they can show that the offense in question was an isolated incident and/or that the client has been living a productive life on the right side of the law for a significant length of time. The Law Offices of Henry A. Posada are here to represent clients in criminal court to help them take advantage of this legal mechanism and move forward with their lives as U.S. residents.
