Our immigration law attorneys at Kurzban, Kurzban, Weinger, Tetzeli and Pratt, P.A., are prepared to help individuals in Florida who are facing possible deportation from the United States. Whether your case involves criminal convictions or allegations of immigration law violations, we are ready to put our extensive knowledge of immigration defense strategy to work in an effort to help you stay in the country.
Depending on the type of crime that was allegedly committed, a non-citizen’s immigration status could be seriously affected. For instance, if you were charged with an aggravated felony you could be barred permanently from naturalization. Moreover, some misdemeanors might be considered as aggravated felonies under immigration law. Due to the complexity of these cases, you might want to consider hiring legal counsel to defend you at immigration court hearings.
Lawyers at our firm have experience defending immigrants in front of the Administrative Appeals Unit of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as well as the Board of Immigration Appeals. We have worked on cases that were heard by federal district courts, the U.S. Court of Appeals and even the Supreme Court of the United States. Additionally, our partner and chair of the Immigration Department has developed an admirable reputation with his peers through his authorship of a well-regarded reference work on immigration law.
If you need help at a detention or immigration removal hearing, our lawyers might be able to help you. In addition to offering legal counsel for immigration issues, we can provide expert testimony at court hearings. Take a look at our page on immigration defense to learn more.
