High stakes for noncitizen defendants
For noncitizens facing criminal charges, navigating the crossroads of immigration and criminal law is a complicated place to be. A seemingly minor offense could have a profound impact on a defendant’s immigration status, triggering detention without the right to bond, inability to naturalize, or even deportation.
With constantly evolving federal and state immigration policy and enforcement, it’s critical to stay up-to-date. Advanced Crimmigration Topics for Immigration & Defense Lawyers will cover everything you need to know, so you can confidently represent noncitizen clients who’ve been charged with a crime.
