Legal Help for Immigrants Facing Criminal Charges
If you are in the U.S. illegally, you are facing deportation in any criminal case. What many people do not know, however, is that even if you are a LEGAL resident of the U.S. and all of your immigration paperwork is in order, you could face deportation if you plead guilty to or are convicted of certain crimes.
If you are an immigrant of any kind, DO NOT plead guilty to a crime. Contact the Utah criminal defense law firm of Greg Smith and Associates before you do anything else. Call 801-651-1512.
