If you are a non-citizen under a criminal charge, even a minor one, you face higher stakes and harsher consequences. A criminal attorney who is not also an expert in immigration law will not be able to fully evaluate how your criminal case will affect your immigration status. This issue is such a serious problem that the U.S. Supreme Court now requires criminal attorneys to advise non-citizen clients of potential immigration consequences.
If you are a non-citizen charged with any crime or offense, the best thing you can do is hire an attorney who knows both immigration and criminal law and who can fully understand your unique situation. Attorney Iliana Dobrev’s knowledge and experience in dealing with U.S. immigration laws and representing non-citizens in misdemeanor criminal cases allows her to evaluate your case from all sides and provide you with competent representation.
