SERIOUS IMMIGRATION CONSEQUENCES EVEN FOR MINOR OFFENSES

Dramatic changes to the Immigration Laws in 1996 result in severe and sometimes irreversible consequences for aliens convicted of crimes. An alien convicted of a crime that may carry modest penalties, including fines, probation, or charitable contributions may have disastrous immigration consequences which may result in the permanent loss of legal residence in the United States, or other immigration benfits.

Mr. Gonzales’ background in criminal and immigration law presents a perfect balance of knowledge, experience and insight that can help avoid the tragic consequences a person may experience as a result of the conviction and sentencing of non-citizen criminal defendants.
