Immigration Today In New Jersey

The federal government is deporting more people today than at any other time in our history. Our firm’s focus is on helping criminal defense attorneys keep their clients from being deported and avoid ineffective assistance of counsel claims based on failure to advise of the immigration consequences.

One of the most important developments in the law today is the convergence of criminal and immigration law or “crimmigration law” as it has been labeled by legal scholars. Since 2005, the federal government has filed more charges against undocumented immigrants than ever before. These immigration cases have accounted for more than half of all new prosecutions filed by the Justice Department.

In New Jersey, referrals to federal immigration officials by local and state police has nearly doubled since the New Jersey Attorney General issued a directive requiring local law enforcement to notify immigration officials when undocumented immigrants are charged with crimes. The federal government is deporting more people today than at any other time in our history. We focus on helping criminal defense attorneys keep their clients from being deported.

The result of the amped up enforcement at the State and Federal levels is that often foreign nationals are forced to simultaneously defend themselves in criminal and immigration prosecutions. Our firm is uniquely positioned to help your foreign national defendant in criminal court. We will provide you with reasonable “safe havens” to assist in plea negotiations with the prosecutor. We understand the interplay between criminal and immigration law and we are well equipped to defend foreign nationals in immigration court.

If you have a question about the immigration consequences of your client’s New Jersey criminal charge, indictment or conviction, contact our office to obtain a legal opinion or schedule an appointment with us. With over two decades of legal experience, we are capable of finding your client a “safe haven” to plead to. We are also available to reopen a deportable conviction.
