Most attorneys handle either criminal law or immigration law. However, if you are an immigrant charged with a crime you want someone who handles and understands both. This is because the outcome of your criminal case can have a devastating effect on your immigration status. Of course the most serious ramification would be deportation but even smaller crimes that may not lead to deportation may make you ineligible for citizenship or disqualify you from obtaining a waiver or other lawful status. This is why it is important to have someone that understands these consequences you may eventually face from the start.
