Immigration Consequences Of Criminal Offenses

Some of the simplest criminal charges can undo all of the hard work a permanent resident has done to obtain his or her green card or prevent a nonpermanent resident from obtaining one. Even worse, you could face deportation or a removal hearing after an arrest, before a criminal conviction has taken place. In these situations you need both an experienced immigration lawyer and a criminal defense attorney who will work together to protect your rights and help you obtain the best outcome possible.

At Bastarrika, Soto, Gonzalez & Somohano, LLP, we provide both the experienced, aggressive criminal attorneys as well as the highly respected and detail oriented immigration attorneys you need to move confidently through your case. In the event that you have already been convicted, we are highly qualified to help you navigate the post-conviction relief process.

Oftentimes we end up discovering many errors on behalf of the government as well as proving the innocence of our clients as it pertains to the crime in question. We work with individuals who have been charged for the first time as well as repeat offenders.

Our immigration law department is managed by Jerard A. Gonzalez, a former criminal and immigration prosecutor who has handled national security cases involving terrorism. He knows how to think like the government, and has lectured extensively on criminal immigration law. No one in the state of New Jersey has as much experience in the matter.

The court system only sees what it has on file. We see you as a complete human being with many positive traits and favorable contributions to society. It is our job to make sure that the judge understands who you are in a full sense before making a judgment on your case.
