Under U.S. immigration law, non-U.S. citizens who are convicted of certain crimes may be deported and barred from re-entry to the United States for years. This is why it is essential that those facing criminal charges enlist the assistance of our trusted and aggressive criminal defense attorneys as soon as possible.
