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!
