Danbury and New Haven Connecticut Immigration Lawyers - Law Offices of Michael Boyle - Avoiding Deportation When You Face Criminal Charges
Criminal Charges

Facing Criminal Charges

While all removal cases are challenging, cases where the non-citizen has a conviction or is detained are particularly difficult. In criminal cases we will obtain the records of the non-citizen's conviction and sentencing. A very broad range of convictions subject non-citizens to mandatory detention, especially if the non-citizen is stopped at an airport when returning from a trip overseas. At the Law Office of Michael Boyle we are experienced in helping immigrants with past or current criminal charges plan the best legal strategy to protect their status and prevent deportation.

Some crimes may result in virtually automatic deportation. Many others fall in an area where with proper advice you may be able to avoid removal. You need immediate legal assistance if you are facing criminal charges for any of the following:

  • Domestic violence
  • First-, second-, or third-degree assault
  • Shoplifting or any type of larceny
  • Gun crimes
  • Sexual assault

Mandatory detention
Most criminal convictions result in the noncitizen being arrested by DHS and subjected to mandatory detention. That is party of why it is so critical to contact us quickly, ideally before you enter a plea. The transition from everyday family life to mandatory immigration detention is drastic. These cases move very rapidly through the immigration court system. We have to work quickly and efficiently to ensure that our client's rights are protected throughout the case.

In cases of serious convictions, the chances of removal are very high. It can be difficult for any attorney to challenge the deportation. In the event that we cannot help you in your criminal matter, we will provide honest and forthright advice so that you can make the best decisions for you and your family. Our attorneys will always provide you with reasonable expectations for your case and will give you the best estimate of the costs and the outcome. You get to make the important decisions in whether or not to proceed in litigation.

For defense attorneys and defendants
We have significant experience in advising criminal defense attorneys on how to structure a plea agreement to give their clients the best chance of avoiding removal. If you are faced with a criminal charge, contact our attorneys for more information on how you should plead to prevent removal. If you are a criminal defense lawyer, we can also provide you with the information you need to protect your client from deportation.
