Are You Facing Deportation? We Will Prepare A Strong Defense
Deportation/removal proceedings typically are initiated after an immigrant has been charged with committing a crime. Regardless of whether an immigrant is in the country legally or illegally, they have certain rights under U.S. law.
At the law office of Steven P. Barsamian, we challenge the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and Justice Department in cases involving expired visas, criminal charges and unlawful entry into the United States.
Our team of investigators researches allegations of forged or inaccurate visa applications, participation in illegal activity and unlawful entry in the United States. In most cases, the government presents its case, providing little time to assemble documents and evaluate the evidence involved. If necessary, Mr. Barsamian will petition the court to grant a stay of deportation in order to thoroughly prepare your case.

The law office of Steven P. Barsamian represents and defends clients who have been charged with or convicted of the following deportable criminal offenses:
- DUI conviction

- Improper re-entry into the United States
- Expired visa
- Other criminal convictions and immigration offenses
Why You Need An Experienced Immigration Attorney
Immigrants arrested on criminal charges sometimes are told by their criminal defense attorney to plead guilty to a crime in exchange for either a reduced charge or sentence. This advice is often given, even when the individual is innocent.
This is a serious legal problem because some criminal convictions are removable offenses, even if they involve lesser charges. Consequently, in cases involving DUI, drug possession and assault, even if the charges against you are reduced to a misdemeanor, you could face deportation.
Before pleading guilty to any criminal charge, consult with an experienced immigration attorney who can evaluate whether or not the plea bargain will negatively affect your immigration status.
As your defense attorney, Mr. Barsamian will explain to the court why you pled guilty and how you were misled. He can challenge the validity of the initial charges and focus on procedural issues that call into question whether you received proper legal guidance.
