Non-citizens and criminal charges


 A criminal conviction can result in the deportation of an immigrant legally residing in the United States. If you are a legal permanent resident, or are undocumented or overstayed your visa, and have been arrested on a criminal charge, you should seek representation by a criminal attorney for the criminal charge, and representation of a knowledgeable immigration attorney who understands the consequences of criminal convictions. Mr. Phillips has over 30 years successfully representing individuals charged with crimes never losing sight to be supportive and nonjudgmental.

The fact that Michael Phillips started his career as a criminal defense lawyer in addition to his present day practice as an immigration lawyer makes him a valuable asset if you or a loved one are in immigration court or facing deportation.
