Even those who legally live and work in the U.S. can find their immigration status jeopardized if they’re charged with (or convicted of) certain criminal offenses. Those who commit one of any number of “crimes of moral turpitude” can be ineligible to naturalize and become a U.S. citizen or may even be subject to deportation.

It’s crucial to inform your criminal attorney of your immigration status so that your attorney can handle your criminal case in a way that minimizes immigration consequences as much as possible.
