Our criminal practice includes defending individuals charged with misdemeanor and felony offenses in the Nassau, Suffolk and Queens County criminal courts. We also provide criminal defense attorneys with an assessment of the immigration consequences their noncitizen clients face if they are convicted, and with strategies to prevent their clients from being rendered deportable.
We handle post-conviction relief: frequently the only way a noncitizen can avoid deportation is to vacate a prior criminal conviction. We also defend motorists with traffic tickets returnable at the Nassau and Suffolk County Traffic Violations Bureaus, or whose licenses have been suspended.
Our attorneys and paralegals are fluent in both Spanish and English. Our ability to speak directly to our clients, in their native language, ensures clear communication. Each client is assigned an attorney and a paralegal to provide them with individualized assistance. There will always be someone familiar with your case to answer your questions and to keep you apprised of any important developments.
For nearly 35 years the Terezakis Law Firm, founded by George A. Terezakis, has helped our clients with their complex immigration and criminal defense matters. We have earned a reputation as a firm that works tirelessly for our clients, and we have an established record of success, even with the most difficult cases. Our former clients refer us their friends and relatives, because they are confident our experienced attorneys and paralegals will provide them high quality representation. Both Mr. Terezakis, and Associate Attorney, Yesenia Maldonado, have been selected for Metro New York “Super Lawyers”, and are well respected in their fields.
Our practice focuses on family based immigration, including applications for a “green card” or to become lawful permanent resident; deportation – removal defense; bond proceedings; cancellation of removal; asylum; waivers and provisional waivers of inadmissibility; naturalization; and appeals to the Board of Immigration Appeals.
