Criminal Charges – For the Non US Citizen

December 1st, 2015 No comments

Even a simple Theft 3° shoplifting conviction can have serious immigration consequences for a non US citizen. Same for a DUI conviction. Strangely, under current immigration law, these misdemeanor offenses can even have more harmful immigration consequences than more serious felony offenses, such as burglary, possession of stolen property or even robbery! So non citizens especially need a good, experienced criminal defense attorney who truly understands the serious immigration consequences. Lynnwood / Shoreline attorney Paul Hanson works closely with local immigration lawyers in all his non US citizen criminal cases.
