Criminal Defense of Noncitizens
At ArborYpsi Law we practice the criminal defense of non-citizens. A criminal conviction for a non-citizen can result in deportation. For the non-citizen charged with a crime, the immigration consequences of a conviction are often more severe than the criminal penalties. When this is the case, the goals of the representation become more focused on the impact that a conviction will have on immigration status.
The Supreme Court case of Padilla v. Kentucky outlines the basic minimum obligations for criminal defense attorneys in advising non-citizen clients. At ArborYpsi Law, we don’t simply meet the minimum standards but develop a defense that is designed with the immigration goals at the forefront of the representation.
