A practice that keeps up with the times. We are experienced and qualified criminal and immigration attorneys who will personally handle both the criminal charge and the potential immigration consequences to the criminal case. Click below to learn more about immigration consequences to criminal convictions, deportation and removal defense and other “Crimmigration” services we provide.
In 2010, The Supreme Court of the United States decided Padilla v. Kentucky – a groundbreaking case that has forever changed the landscape of criminal defense – which holds criminal defense attorneys legally responsible to effectively advise their clients about any immigration consequences to a criminal conviction. The Padilla case has basically given birth to a new category of law, some people label as “Crimmigration.” Nowadays, and more often than not, when you decide to hire a criminal defense attorney for a criminal case, he or she may refer you to an immigration attorney to handle your deportation case (same thing happens vice versa). You end up paying twice the amount in legal fees than what you expected!

Because The EH Law Firm is a “one-stop-shop” for your “Crimmigration” matters, not only will you save on legal fees, but you will get personalized, efficient, and dedicated attention on both matters!
