Immigration Status And Criminal Convictions

Now more than ever, if you are an immigrant, it is essential not to have a criminal record. Welch & Schmeiser Criminal Defense Group attorneys work hard to advocate for your rights. Our goal is to resolve your criminal charges without a conviction.

What If I Have A Green Card?

Even if you have a green card, getting a criminal conviction means that you can be deported as a result. It makes sense to try all legal approaches to clear your name so that you may remain in the United States.

Should I Plead Guilty To A Lesser Charge?

What if the prosecutor offers you a plea bargain that will give you little or no jail time if you plead guilty to a lesser offense? It may be tempting to accept the deal to stay out of jail or lessen your sentence. However, you will still have a conviction, and that makes it possible for you to get deported. You should seek a lawyer’s advice if you get offered a plea deal.
