At David Kennedy & Associates, we provide a wide range of services, including criminal defense. If you have been accused of a crime, you need to have an attorney on your side.
If you are not a U.S. citizen and you have been accused of a crime, it is extremely important to have a criminal defense attorney who understands federal immigration law and who can advise you as to the immigration consequences of any potential guilty plea or guilty verdict. Different crimes have drastically different consequences under immigration law which do not always make sense -- state misdemeanors can sometimes be considered to be "aggravated felonies" under immigration law. The difference between a guilty plea that will automatically get you deported and a guilty plea that will have no negative immigration consequences for you could be as small and technical as one day difference on the sentence signed by the state court judge.
