Post-Conviction Relief

Post-Conviction Relief (Criminal and Immigration)

The intersection of criminal and immigration law is a highly specialized area of law.  As many non-citizens face harsh and drastic immigration consequences as a result of their criminal history, it is imperative that such persons resolve criminal matters with immigration consequences in mind.  Non-citizens involved in criminal proceedings should retain the expert advice of a reliable immigration attorney to assist their criminal defense counsel in the resolution of the criminal matter so as to avoid immigration consequences before it may be too late.  For people who are already faced with immigration consequences as a result of criminal history, post conviction relief may be required.  If a prior criminal conviction is sanitized through adequate post conviction relief, harsh immigration consequences such as deportation or inability to apply for resident status or naturalization could be avoided. Some examples of post conviction relief vehicles include motions to vacate prior convictions based on legal and constitutional grounds, motions to vacate or modify sentences, and motions to reduce felonies to misdemeanors.
