High Stakes For Immigrants Charged With Crimes
For many of our clients, criminal charges go beyond jail time, fines and a permanent criminal record. An arrest can lead to deportation, or other collateral consequences for undocumented immigrants, non-immigrant visa applicants (students or tourists), and lawful permanent residents, or those seeking such status.
If an arrest threatens your immigration status in the United States, do not wait. Time is of the essence. Contact Narins Defense for help.
Skilled In Criminal Cases Carrying Immigration Consequences
Criminal defense lawyer Page Narins is sensitive to the cultural differences of her immigrant clients. She is cognizant of the different cultures her clients have, and how those cultural traditions may result in criminal charges in Minnesota. For example:
- The use of alcohol. Many countries use alcohol for purposes other than consumption. If alcohol is used as an antiseptic or for relief from a toothache before driving, it can lead to DUI/DWI charges.
- In some communities, the age of couples in committed relationships skew younger with a larger disparity in age. What is considered acceptable in another culture and country can land an adult in a United States court facing statutory rape charges.
In all criminal cases where visas and lawful permanent residence are at stake, we work closely with your immigration attorney to address possible immigration consequences. We also have Spanish-speaking ability onsite.
