Skilled Los Angeles Immigration Deportation Defense Lawyer
Lawyers who do not understand the effects of criminal convictions on immigration status frequently recommend guilty pleas, thinking that they are getting a "good deal" for their clients. Many clients only find out later that their guilty plea has made them ineligible for admission to the U.S., lost them their green card or taken away their chance for United States citizenship. In light of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling Padilla v. Kentucky, it is now incumbent on all criminal defense attorneys to understand the precise immigration implications of their clients' situation. Mark A. Davis understands the risks in your case. He will work to protect your rights and your status in the U.S.
