DuPage County Immigration and Criminal Defense Attorneys

Aggressively Defending Immigrants Facing Criminal Charges in Illinois

When an immigrant is charged with a crime, a conviction can mean much more than a black mark on your record. For non-U.S. citizens, certain crimes are considered deportable offenses. In addition, if your legal status in the U.S. is questionable, just being pulled over for minor traffic violations can lead to ICE detention and deportation/removal proceedings. If you are a non-U.S. citizen facing criminal charges, you need attorneys with knowledge of both criminal defense and immigration law, how these two areas work together and your best options for reducing/eliminating the charges against you.

For several decades, Mevorah & Giglio Law Offices has provided skilled legal representation for individuals charged with crimes in Chicagoland and throughout northern Illinois. Our award-winning lawyers are former prosecutors and former public defenders with extensive experience successfully litigating criminal cases at all levels of the state and federal judicial system. We have in-depth knowledge of the inner workings of the local courts, how they will build their case against you and what it takes to secure a positive outcome.

We also have a full-service immigration practice, and we represent clients regularly before the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and U.S. Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE). Our attorneys are mindful of how criminal issues may impact your immigration status, and our unique blend of experience in these areas of the law allows us to craft the most effective defense strategy to fit your specific circumstances.

Criminal convictions can lead to severe consequences for non-U.S. citizens, these include:

  • Denial of your application for legal permanent resident (LPR) status or citizenship;
  • Deportation/removal; and
  • Inability to return to the U.S. for a set number of years, and in some cases permanently.

Any criminal conviction, including misdemeanors, can jeopardize your legal status in the United States. More serious crimes, such as aggravated felonies, will most likely disqualify you from any type of immigration relief and lead to mandatory deportation, even if you have already obtained LPR status.

When you are charged with a crime, we go to work immediately to examine the circumstances fully and identify any and all holes in the prosecution’s case. There are times when local law enforcement does not properly follow all procedures during the arrest and shortly thereafter. There are other times when the evidence is weak, and we know the prosecution will have difficulty proving their case. Our attorneys are skilled litigators and strong negotiators, and we put our experience to work to advocate aggressively on your behalf. The best result is having the charges dropped or amending the charges to a lesser offense, and hopefully one that qualifies for court supervision. We are also skilled at obtaining expungements for prior criminal convictions when possible.

At Mevorah & Giglio Law Offices, we understand criminal issues and immigration and how the two areas of the law intertwine. We draw on our experience to fight hard for the rights of each client we serve and explore every legal avenue to preserving your status here in the U.S. For a free consultation with one of our skilled Illinois criminal defense and immigration lawyers, contact our office today at 630-932-9100630-932-9100.
