Protecting your immigration status when facing criminal charges

Life has its challenges, and a criminal conviction can add complications. Your family, job, and lifestyle can be seriously affected. But for foreign nationals, the stakes are even higher.

What is crimmigration?

If you are facing a criminal charge or conviction as a non-citizen, it’s understandable to feel worried. Knowing that you could be deported—after your visa or permanent resident status is revoked following a conviction— is stressful. These situations require both criminal and immigration representation, in an area of law we call “crimmigration.”

When a client approaches BB&C with a crimmigration case, attorneys Kyle Mandeville and Kyle Cray team up. With more than 10 years of immigration law experience and a criminal law concentration, they advocate for an outcome that best protects your immigration status. They provide guidance and representation, and they strive to protect you from criminal consequences. They have worked to negotiate felony fraud and theft cases to accommodate the petty theft exemption to the federal immigration statutes. And since there are multiple layers of state and federal law that must be analyzed simultaneously, it is imperative that you seek counsel.

What if I’m an international student?

International university students may have the added complication of a university disciplinary proceeding or a persona non grata being issued against them. These complications can affect not just their education, but also their immigration status.

At BB&C, Kyle M. and Kyle C. will guide you through the complicated process and represent you across the spectrum of university discipline, state criminal law, and federal immigration law. They have experience mitigating the consequences of criminal actions and fighting for the best outcome across this multilayered legal landscape.
