I have been defending clients accused of crime, disorderly persons offenses (misdemeanors), drunk driving for over 30 years in New Jersey and later, New York. During this time I have had acquittals, downgraded charges to avoid deportation, and re-opened many convictions resulting in preventing deportation. The more I learned of immigration law the more interested I became. Preventing deportation is my goal. Doing everything possible (within ethical boundaries) to prevent your deportation, or enable you to become a citizen is what I do.
30 years of criminal trial experience including successfully defending criminal charges and re-opening convictions. A thorough knowledge of the grounds for deportation and inadmissiblity under the immigration laws.
Certification as a Criminal Trial Attorney by the Supreme Court of New Jersey. Doing the hard work to be awarded an LL.M (masters in law) for Trial Advocacy by Temple University Law School. Participation in many seminars on criminal law and immigration law to stay current in my knowledge of these areas. Membership on the Criminal Law Committees of the New Jersey State Bar Association and the Bar Association of the City of New York.
Knowledge of the criminal AND immigration laws. The ability to defend charges resulting in deportation in Immigration court and State courts. Why pay an immigration attorney and a criminal defense attorney? The knowledge and ability to re-open criminal convictions that might result in deportation or prevent citizenship. And my success in accomplishing these goals.
We work very hard to achieve these goals for you.
