Non-United States Citizens have unique concerns when they are arrested or prosecuted for crimes. Therefore, it’s extremely important to hire a Miami criminal defense lawyer who understands criminal defense law and how criminal offenses can adversely affect a client’s immigration status. A disposition that may be perfectly acceptable for a U.S. citizen in domestic violence, drug crimes or petit theft cases may have dire consequences for a non-U.S. Citizen.

Possible Consequences of a Criminal Conviction
