Immigration Status And Criminal Charges
Criminal charges can derail your life. Depending on the charge involved, you could face possible prison time, large fines, loss of your driver’s license and other penalties. If you are an immigrant, the consequences are even more severe. Depending on your immigration status and your criminal charges, you may lose your green card, your work or school visa, and your ability to become a citizen, and you may even face deportation.
At the Law Offices of Thomas Carroll Blauvelt, LLC, I understand the severity of your situation. I will fight your criminal charges so you can preserve your immigration status and your hopes of becoming a citizen.
My spouse was suspected of shoplifting in New Jersey. Since we are immigrants, the case course can have serious legal consequences. When we met him for the initial consultation, he clearly dissected the possibilities of the case. It truly showed the experience he had. He was clearly able to understand the mental state we were in and made our life so easy.
Because of the way he navigated the case… the final status … dismissed.
