At The Law Offices of Edith Nazarian, APC, we have a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney ready to help you with any criminal-related matter that you may have, whether it be representing you in court on a felony or misdemeanor, expunging your record, or seeking a motion to vacate.
For individuals in criminal proceedings who are not U.S. citizens, it is critical that you have the right representation to help ensure that you do not become subject to adverse immigration consequences. Certain convictions may constitute crimes involving moral turpitude or aggravated felonies, which could render you inadmissible or removable from the country. Having the right attorney representing you in criminal court who understands immigration law will help alert you and potentially minimize these negative consequences. Even if you already have a conviction that has negative immigration consequences, you may be able to submit a motion to vacate under statutes such as California Penal Code sections 1016.5 and 1473.7 to reverse the negative immigration consequences of your plea.
