The Intersection Of Immigration Law And Criminal Defense
Immigration law intersects with many different practice areas. One such area is the intersection between criminal law and immigration law – “crimmigration.” Due to our attorneys’ backgrounds in immigration law and both federal and state criminal law, the attorneys at Guirguis Law are fully equipped to assist noncitizens facing criminal problems.
Because of the complex nature of immigration law and its intersection with federal and state criminal law, it is crucial that noncitizens facing criminal charges speak with someone knowledgeable in both areas of law. Our team works together to ensure that we address more than the criminal law matter. This forward-looking approach is just one example of how we serve “people” not just “problems.”
The Intersection Of Immigration Law And Family Law
Another intersection that Guirguis Law concentrates on is the intersection between immigration law and family law. Family-related issues can help or hinder immigration issues, or even create problems with immigration status. Our family law attorney works closely with our immigration attorneys to ensure that we are treating the person and fully advising him/her on how family-related issues can or may affect an immigration matter.
Providing Legal Support For Noncitizens
Additionally, at Guirguis Law, P.A., we recognize that noncitizens are frequently taken advantage of because of their status. We also know that noncitizens are often fearful of taking legal action against those who have wronged them. We serve noncitizens by fighting against such wrongs, be it employment discrimination, worker’s compensation, breach of contract or personal injury.
We will address any fears or concerns in a respectful and understanding manner while fighting to make you whole. We serve citizens and noncitizens alike with the same tenacity and respect in their criminal, family, and civil matters; our passion to succeed for our clients is a constant.
Our Foundation In Faith
Because of our faith-based foundation, we hold ourselves to an even higher standard of service. We seek to serve the “person” and not just the “problem” because we know that clients deserve more. We offer our clients:
- Multilingual support for clients speaking English, Spanish and Arabic
- After-hours and weekend consultations
- Phone consultations
- Skype consultations
- In-jail visits and consultations
- Strong lines of communication that keep you informed and involved
- Reasonable payment plans
- A total commitment to our clients and their needs
Everyone who comes into our office, regardless of why they need legal services, is a person deserving of respect, zealous advocacy and understanding. We will greet you with a beverage and listen first, then talk.
