Remove Convictions from Your Record
Immigration becomes much more difficult when you have a prior conviction. We review your record and file a motion in the county where you were prosecuted and convicted in order to help you have the conviction vacated, dismissed, or annulled. By doing so, you'll have the opportunity to either apply for or renew a green card -- or even apply for citizenship. We can also appear before the immigration court on your behalf and fight against the threat of deportation. Count on us to help you expunge a record or provide thorough immigration legal services.
Our post-conviction relief motion team has an excellent record of success when it comes to post-conviction relief. In the current political climate, now is a good time to file motions for post-conviction relief in California. Contact us today to get the process started with a consultation.
Find Out If You’re a Candidate
Not every conviction can be vacated, dismissed, or annulled. However, there are many circumstances where our post-conviction lawyers can make a big difference.
For example, we may be able to build a strong case that you were convicted or pled guilty due to “ineffective assistance of counsel” -- meaning your previous lawyer was so incompetent that they cost you your right to a fair trial. To find out if you may be a candidate for the post-conviction relief process, talk to our team today.
Most Common Forms of Post-Conviction Relief
Some people mistakenly believe that post-conviction relief means completely erasing the conviction from the record. However, it is far more complicated than that. The relief can take many forms, such as:
- Motion to Overturn the Conviction Due to Ineffective Assistance of Counsel
- Motion for Re-Sentencing
- Reduction from Felony to Misdemeanor
- Motion to Withdraw a Guilty or No-Contest Plea
- Habeas Corpus Petition
We build the best possible case based on your situation and represent you at your post-conviction hearing, if necessary. Our goal is to increase your chances for a favorable result that will protect your immigration status.
