Aggressive Miami Deportation Lawyer Protects Immigrant Rights
Effective legal counsel to oppose removal
Noncitizens do not enjoy full constitutional rights, but they still have a right to due process. If you are a legal permanent resident (LPR) or temporary worker and you get into trouble with the law, you have the right to legal representation. The Law Offices of Arthur D. Lake, LLC defends immigrant rights. Because Attorney Arthur Lake is knowledgeable about immigration law and is a skilled criminal defense lawyer, he can defend accused immigrants in criminal court and in removal hearings. Attorney Lake is also an immigrant himself, so he understands how much your chance at life in America means to you. When your right to stay in the United States is in jeopardy, rely on a capable, caring attorney.
Aggressive defense to criminal grounds for removal
Certain convictions in criminal court trigger automatic removal and make an immigrant ineligible for all forms of relief. Therefore, you can only avoid removal if you beat the charges or have those charges reduced to offenses that give the immigration judge discretion to allow you to stay. Immigration law is often unclear about whether a violation of state law amounts to an “aggravated felony,” for which you must be deported. At this point, rather than choosing among Miami deportation attorneys, you should be looking for a criminal defense lawyer who can make a compelling case for leniency.
The Law Offices of attorney Arthur Lake is a determined criminal defense firm known for thorough preparation and high ethical standards. He does everything within the law to challenge the prosecution’s case, including how evidence was acquired and preserved for trial. If your civil rights were violated at any point, evidence against you may be inadmissible in court.
Fighting for relief from removal
If your removal hearing doesn’t go well, the immigration judge may find that you are deportable. You may be removed from the United States unless the judge grants you relief from removal. As an immigration lawyer in Miami, Arthur Lake is familiar with the several forms of relief available and their specific eligibility requirements. Attorney Lake has argued successfully against removal, citing an immigrant’s ties to the United States, evidence of rehabilitation, contributions to the community, military service, and the hardship that removal would cause the immigrant’s family members. He can apply for waivers where these would be helpful for a client’s case.
Defense in the event of lost conditional residence
Some immigrants are admitted to the United States on specific conditions. Conditional permanent residence is granted when a person immigrates on the basis of a marriage less than two years in length or when an immigrant promises to make significant investments in the United States that will produce jobs for U.S. workers. When these immigrants do not meet the conditions of their admission (e.g., the marriage fails or the business does not produce employment), their conditional resident status may be terminated, making them deportable, unless they qualify for a hardship waiver. Miami deportation attorney Lake is adept at presenting arguments of good faith on the part of immigrants and proving extenuating circumstances that prevented the conditions from being fulfilled.
