Theft Crime Defense For Green Card Holders

If you are a non-U.S. citizen accused of theft or shoplifting, it is important that you contact an attorney who provides criminal defense and immigration services. I represent individuals and families dealing with a range of legal issues, including theft charges and how they affect immigration.

Even if you are charged with a relatively minor theft crime, your immigration status could be at risk. A theft conviction can lead to deportation, and I can explain your legal options for protecting your green card.

Important: not every attorney provides criminal defense and immigration services. I do.

The sooner you contact me, the sooner I can start working to protect your rights and future.

Defending Against Misdemeanor And Felony Theft Charges

In Arizona, theft can be a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the value of the items allegedly stolen.

The possible penalties for a theft conviction include heavy fines and jail time, but even if you are not required to go to jail, you could be forced to leave the country if you are not a U.S. citizen.

Many people are surprised when immigration officials get involved after a minor theft conviction, but even a minor theft crime could be a deportable offense.

I help accused individuals understand their rights and defend against theft charges, and I develop legal strategies to help green card holders avoid deportation. Make no mistake: theft charges are very serious, and you need a strong legal advocate on your side if you are accused of a theft offense.

A note on juvenile charges: young people may also face serious consequences if charged with shoplifting or theft. If your child has been accused of a theft crime, call or email my office today. I can explain the available options for safeguarding your child's future.
