Criminal Law & Expungements Attorney in Santa Rosa

Understanding the Relationship Between Criminal Law and Immigration

If you are an immigrant who has been arrested or charged with a crime, it is important to have a lawyer who understands the effect a criminal conviction can have on your immigration status. In addition to fines, jail time and other punishments, a criminal conviction could lead to your deportation.

Since 1986, my firm has been providing people in California’s North Coast region, and throughout California, with an aggressive defense of their rights in criminal law and immigration cases. I am intimately familiar with the court system and I have earned the respect of my peers and adversaries.

An Aggressive Defense From a Knowledgeable Attorney

I provide people with sound legal advice and skilled representation in immigration court, and defend my clients in California’s criminal courts from a broad range of charges stemming from:

  • DUI
  • Drug crimes
  • Sex crimes
  • Theft and burglary
  • Assault
  • Violent crimes
  • Domestic violence

If you are an immigrant facing criminal charges, you cannot afford to go to court without an experienced attorney. I understand the effects that a criminal conviction can have on immigrants. Many criminal defense lawyers do not understand this, and their clients are left to pay the price.


In addition to providing criminal defense representation, I can help you as you seek to have past criminal actions expunged from your record. If you are seeking to become a citizen, having a clean criminal record will be to your benefit. Sometimes an expungement is the only way to avoid deportation, or denial of immigration benefits.
