Is A Criminal Allegation Putting Your Immigration Status At Risk?
Criminal convictions are nerve-wracking under the best of circumstances, but, for those with open immigration cases or who may face removal, a conviction can be devastating. The important thing to know is that having a criminal record or conviction does not necessarily mean you will need to leave the country.
The best thing you can do for yourself and your loved ones at this moment is to find an attorney who really understands the law and the immigration system. Fortunately, you have an ally at Ejezie Law Firm, LLC. With years of experience in immigration and its intersection with criminal law, I can help you find a productive path forward.

Making The Legal System See The Person Behind The Case File
A criminal conviction is not a death sentence for your immigration case. Instead, the courts take your criminal record into account separately of your immigration case and look at the bigger picture.
Simply put, removal is not always the appropriate response to a crime. There are often extenuating circumstances and context that support keeping a convicted person in the country, especially if a conviction is for a nonviolent offense or misdemeanor. As your attorney, I make sure that the courts consider the full story – who you are, the contributions you have made to the community, your life accomplishments and the details of your record.
