If you practice criminal defense in Virginia and need help assisting clients who have immigration concerns, I am Yuvora Nong and I am here to help you and your clients with their immigration issues that are affected by the criminal charges they are facing.
Accepting Defense Immigration Attorney Referrals
While criminal defense lawyers can be effective at helping their clients navigate the criminal justice system on the state or federal level, they may not always be able to properly advise their clients on the immigration implications. My firm routinely works with criminal defense law firms to help advise and assist clients with these immigration issues. For more information about my services, please do not hesitate to contact me today.
I routinely assist criminal defense attorneys who are negotiating plea bargains for all types of offenses, including the following:
- Voluntary manslaughter
- Statutory rape
- Domestic violence
- Fraud and crimes where fraud is an element
- All theft offenses (but see receipt of stolen property below)
- Malicious destruction of property
- Alien smuggling
- Harboring a fugitive
Crimes of moral turpitude are those charges that are generally deemed by society to contain conduct that shocks the public conscience. If you are convicted of one of these crimes, you might have deportation or removal proceedings started against you, or your application for a green card or citizenship denied.
If your criminal defense attorney needs guidance, we can assist him or her about how to structure plea agreements and criminal conviction sentencing recommendations that are in your best interest from an immigration standpoint. I understand the legal aspects of the citizenship process as well as how criminal defense and immigration law intersect. For instance, if your criminal defense attorney failed to warn you of the consequences of pleading guilty or being convicted, in some circumstances it may be possible to reopen your case and revisit the criminal aspect.
