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.
Our Clients Love Us!
I got to be there on the first day that he and his team got three men out of immigration jail on their respective bond hearings in under an hour. He was on fire. I’ve also watched him win a criminal case. This man is grit and soul. He does not give up on his clients.

Although we had our initial skepticism at first, our friends words would turn out to be prophetic, “He’s unlike any lawyer you’ve ever met.” Thanks to Mr. Terezakis’ effort and dedication to his profession, my father’s deportation order was removed and for once we can live our lives in peace and pursue the American Dream that was once denied to us for so long.

Mr. Terezakis was nothing but dedicated to helping my family in our moment of crisis when we had no one. He helped us with immigration and fought for my fathers cancellation of removal and came out victorious! Not only did Mr. Terezakis win the case but, he jumped in and took over and fixed the mess the previous lawyer had made and he did an exceptional job!

I was referred to George from the National Lawyers Guild when I was facing criminal charges related to freedom of speech and political expression. George was very professional, treated me with respect and always kept in contact with me. I applaud George for his commitment to social justice and compassion. I highly recommend him!

HE IS THE MAN!!! … I had less than a 5% chance of winning my case. And guess what? He did it and he made it perfect! He is worth every penny.

Many lawyers told me that there was no way anyone could help me but since it’s God who gets the last word, I met George Terezakis.

My father lived every single day limited, in dismay of making any prosperous long-term goals, fearing that one day, he would be deported for a mistake he did in his teen years. Mr. Terezakis changed that, he gave us a peace of mind.

A Ticket Genius! George is a master of traffic court. He’s been our maestro of turning silly trumped up commercial tickets into no point (often no-fee) violations. We recommend him to everyone we know. A traffic court genius I say!
