Drug Possession Charges may be Set Aside to Protect your Status
If you have been accused of drug possession, you may be frightened not only of the possible negative consequences to yourself but also for your family. A guilty verdict can mean more than just time spent in jail or prison. If you are an immigrant and are convicted of possession of drugs, you may be deported and separated from your loved ones.
Drug possession – including cocaine, marijuana, meth/methamphetamines, or ecstasy – is a serious crime and for immigrants, the stakes may be even higher. Immigrants accused of drug possession need an attorney committed to quality representation and personal service. Our firm is dedicated to serving immigrants to the United States. When we represent you, your attorney will be an experienced criminal defense lawyer as well as an experienced immigration lawyer. We are prepared to address the complexities and consequences a criminal charge can have on your immigration status.
Our goal is to have drug possession charges set aside from your legal record. Having charges “set aside” or expunged clears your record and minimizes negative consequences for your immigration status. Having your criminal record expunged can mean the difference between keeping your family together or being deported.
Our firm has represented non-American citizens from Mexico as well as many other countries. Our staff is multilingual and your initial consultation is free.
