Why you need an immigration and criminal defense attorney:

As Immigration Attorneys and Criminal Defense Lawyers who have been practicing in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1980, we emphasize obtaining Adjustments of Status to Lawful Permanent Residency (‘Green Cards’) and Naturalizations (U.S. Citizenship) for our non-citizen clients who have criminal conviction(s) and arrest(s) requiring Post-Conviction Relief (PCR). We place special emphasis as legal experts, in filing Motions to Vacate (to eliminate), to Modify and to Dismiss criminal conviction(s) in the California State criminal courts. By winning these Motions to Vacate, we eliminate the immigration problems our clients face of inadmissibility, deportation and removability from the U.S. We then file Motions to Terminate their Removal Proceedings in the Immigration Courts. Our clients then become eligible to apply for LPR status and U.S. citizenship through Naturalization.
