Immigration Defense Lawyers in Memphis

Providing Strong Representation across Memphis TN, East Arkansas and North Mississippi

undefinedAt Claiborne Ferguson Law Firm, P.A., our attorneys have experience practicing at the intersection of criminal law and immigration law – often called “crimmigration.” When a foreign national is charged with a crime in the United States, he or she needs the help of a skilled attorney who understands how to properly defend non-U.S. citizens. Too often, immigrants do not know their rights or the laws when facing criminal issues.

If you find yourself in this situation, Claiborne Ferguson Law Firm, P.A. can represent you during this nerve-wracking experience. We provide comprehensive counsel tailored to your unique case and designed to protect your rights above all.

How Criminal Charges Can Impact an Immigrant

Immigrants who have been charged with a crime in the U.S. will face serious penalties that could affect their immigration status. These consequences will depend on the circumstances of the alleged crime and whether the defendant was legally or illegally present in the U.S. Conviction of a crime can make a permanent resident subject to removal or make an undocumented person ineligible for adjustment of status (AOS). It will also depend on whether or not the crime was inadmissible, which could be a crime of moral turpitude, a drug offense, or prostitution.

Any foreign national who is charged with or convicted of a crime in the U.S. could be prevented from:

  • Re-entering the country after leaving
  • Obtaining U.S. citizenship
  • Getting a green card or adjusting status from illegal to legal immigrant

A conviction could have a deep and long-lasting impact on you and your family. Consult with our team to discuss your unique case and find trusted counsel.
