It’s called “Crimmigration”
When an immigrant faces criminal charges or even a traffic ticket, the threat of immigration consequences arises. In this “Crimmigration” scenario – “Crimmigration” being the area of law where criminal and immigration consequences intersect and effect one another – it is important to work with a law firm that can offer a consult which takes into account both the criminal and immigration repercussions of any particular legal strategy.
Most firms don’t do this, which leads to bad outcomes: immigrants who end up in ICE detention because they were improperly counseled to pay a criminal bond when they were the subject of an ICE detainer; family adjustment applicants who are rejected and then given a notice to appear in court, because a drug or DWI charge was improperly pleaded.
At Bull City Lawyer we have the benefit of having our senior attorney, Maryam Al-Zoubi, who was a criminal prosecutor in the Bronx, and in Orange County, North Carolina, and trained in a breed of criminal persecution that put heavy emphasis on the immigration consequences of criminal convictions. We are also lucky to be able to leverage the wisdom and close to 40 years of experience of our attorney Marcus Hill, owner of Marcus Hill Attorney at Law, a three attorney firm, and who is considered one of North Carolina’s best criminal and trial lawyers.
