Immigration and Criminal Defense Attorneys in Florida & New York

Protecting Your Rights to Help You Reach Your Immigration Goals

At The Sekou Clarke Law Group, we understand how complex the immigration process can be for individuals hoping to lawfully work or live in the United States. Our team can accompany you at every step of your journey from your first application to maintaining your status. In certain cases, immigration law and criminal defense can overlap.

When you trust us with your immigration situation, we can help you navigate the legal system and educate you on how convictions could negatively affect your immigration status.

How Can a Conviction Impact Your Immigration Status?

Two main types of criminal charges can overlap with immigration matters. The first one happens if you violate the terms of your immigration status. Our attorneys strive to educate all clients on how to abide by the regulations governing their status. If you overstay your visa or otherwise break immigration laws, you can face legal action from the Department of Homeland Security or DHS.

If you perform a deportable crime, you could lose your current immigration status and a court may prohibit you from re-entering US territory for a specific time.

Criminal convictions that can negatively impact your immigration status include:

  • Drug crimes
  • Crimes involving firearms
  • Domestic violence
  • Aggravated felonies
  • Kidnapping
  • Sexual assault
  • Murder

When you are a non-citizen, a wide range of criminal convictions can lead to deportation. In addition, the legal framework that governs this type of immigration and criminal charges overlap change regularly. This is why is it especially important to reach out to a reputable attorney as soon as you face accusations as an immigrant, no matter whether you are on a student visa, an asylee, or a green card holder.

Work With a Reputable Immigration Attorney

If you have a criminal record, this may impact your immigration application. Almost every form issued by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services or USCIS, asks whether you have previously been convicted of a crime. In these situations, an immigration attorney alone is typically enough to help you throughout the process and see how you may move forward with the next steps of your immigration journey.

If you face criminal charges as a non-citizen in the US, you may need both a criminal defense lawyer and an immigration one, unless your attorney has enough experience in both legal fields. The overlap of criminal defense and immigration challenges may require advanced understanding to build a successful case.

At The Sekou Clarke Law, we understand how both immigration and criminal defense can converge in specific cases. Our attorneys can advise you on a broad range of immigration-related topics such as whether you can travel outside of the US in your situation, and what immigration benefits you may still be eligible for as you are challenging criminal charges against you. Our priority is to advocate for your rights and maintain your immigration status.
