Immigration Consequences Of Criminal Offenses
Some of the simplest criminal charges can lead to deportation from the United States. You could face a 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 protect your rights and help you obtain the best outcome possible.
At Bastarrika, Soto, Gonzalez & Somohano, L.L.P., we provide the experienced, aggressive criminal attorneys and 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 can help you navigate the post-conviction relief process. Working together with one of our criminal defense attorneys or outside counsel, our immigration lawyers will review your criminal case so that you may continue to live in the United States with your family.
Working With First-Time And Repeat Offenders
Oftentimes we end up discovering many errors made by 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.
In addition to working with co-counsel during the plea negotiation process, we handle post-conviction relief before all courts in the New Jersey. We have been successful in obtaining post-conviction relief on a variety of procedural and constitutional grounds throughout the state, and have assisted counsel in other states obtain success in their respective states.
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 New Jersey has as much experience in the matter.
