Recognized as one of the foremost firms practicing at the intersection of criminal and immigration law, we are the firm people turn to with the most difficult cases. We are frequently called upon by criminal defense attorneys to advise them of the immigration consequences of a proposed guilty plea, and to help them find a disposition which will avoid deportation for their non-citizen clients. Additionally, immigration lawyers refer to us their non-citizen clients to defend when they face criminal charges, because they are confident we will be mindful of the immigration consequences of any disposition. Also, our litigation experience translates into a high success rate in both our criminal and deportation defense cases.
Respected and well-known in the community, national and local Bar Associations regularly call upon Mr. Terezakis to teach Continuing Legal Education seminars to attorneys who practice in the fields of criminal and immigration law and who wish to learn cutting edge developments in this complex area of the law. Community leaders, Judges, and other attorneys regularly refer clients facing complex criminal-immigration issues to our firm confident that the client will receive personal and zealous representation. Mr. Terezakis is a past-president of the Nassau County Criminal Courts Bar Association, a former member of the Board of Directors of the NYS Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, and is currently serving on the Board of the Immigration Section of the Federal Bar Association.
Sometimes clients come to us when their last hope for avoiding deportation-removal is to vacate a prior criminal conviction. Our experience in criminal and deportation defense enables us to analyze their situation, and in many instances we are able to vacate the prior conviction and help them to avoid deportation. We believe it speaks volumes that the majority of our clients are referred to us by previous clients, community leaders, Judges, and fellow attorneys. We are here for you when you need us. Our experience and commitment will help you through one of the most difficult, and trying times in your life.
