Immigrants convicted of certain criminal offenses, in some cases, can face loss of legal statues and even deportation. Whether you are trying to become a U.S. citizen, or you want to remain in the United States in the future, you need to hire a criminal defense attorney who understands the connection between criminal law and immigration law.
