Being charged with a crime can be a confusing and frightening process. A criminal conviction can cost you employment and future employment opportunities. A felony conviction can cost you federal housing, student loan eligibility and the right to vote. In addition, you could face jail or prison time. At Mazzei & Polk, LLC, we have built our firm on defending our clients’ rights to the utmost. Often, the overall process can be confusing, but we can help. First, it is essential to understand the terms and consequences.
Many things have changed since the days of Ellis Island when all that was needed to become a resident was $25 and a clean bill of health. The immigration system in the United States has become a confusing patchwork of laws and regulations and people who would otherwise qualify for residency will linger for years in legal limbo. Every day, non-citizens face removal proceedings and are sent back to their countries of origin without a lawyer ever looking at their case. Moreover, thousands more never inform themselves of their rights and remain illegal often when they have legal grounds to stay in this country.
