Our client retained Attorney Frank Krajenke of Herman Legal Group after sitting with a criminal conviction for three years. Our client left Panama and came to the US as a child with lawful permanent resident status.
Our client retained Herman Legal Group after being convicted of a removable crime. Prior to consulting us, our client had been formally represented by a criminal defense attorney unfamiliar with immigration law. While a criminal lawyer may believe it is in one’s best interest to plead guilty to a crime in order to lessen the charge or sentence, when representing an immigrant, legal counsel must inform his client of possible removal consequences when pleading.
