IMMIGRATION/CRIMINAL DEFENSE

Immigrants who are not yet U.S. citizens have special legal needs often requiring a criminal defense lawyer and an immigration lawyer. Fortunately, our firm handles both. A U.S. citizen who pleads guilty to an offense, often to a lesser charge to prevent jail time, usually pays a small fine or obtains probation and returns home relieved not to serve jail time. For undocumented immigrants and even lawful permanent residents, a guilty plea, resulting in a small fine or probation, can result in deportation or removal from the U.S.

We appear in all local and state courts in Northern Nevada including Reno, Sparks, Carson City, Minden, So Lake Tahoe, Incline Village, Lovelock, Winnemucca, Fallon and Fernley.

Our lawyers advise immigrants BEFORE they work out a possible guilty plea that seeks to avoid adverse immigration consequences. With several decades of experience in courthouses throughout Nevada, our lawyers have the experience to obtain a just and fair outcome following an arrest or criminal charge. In addition, with new Supreme Court decisions regarding past criminal convictions in which the defendant was not properly advised of their rights or to the possible immigration consequences of a convictino, in some circumstances, can be amended or even dismissed.

Immigration Law


American Flag

Entering the U.S. without a visa (EWI) and remaining here more than 1 year illegally allows that person to apply for permanent residence though an LPR or U.S. C. spouse. A waiver or pardon is necessary which requires them to return to their home country for a minimum of a few months to submit the application. To be approved that person must prove extreme hardship to their U.S. citizen or lawful permanent spouse or parent.
