NJ Immigration Criminal Defense Lawyer

Criminal Convictions & Immigration Consequences

If you have been charged with a crime as an immigrant, you need to retain the services of an experienced New Jersey immigration lawyer as promptly as possible to develop the best strategy for your case. A criminal conviction can have a catastrophic impact on your life and your future, making it crucial to work with an attorney that can go the extra mile to fight for your case. I have a history of success helping those who are facing criminal accusations and I am prepared to help you.

How Can Attorney Bertollini Help You?

At the Law Offices of Simone Bertollini, I represent immigrants that:

  • Have been charged with a crime
  • Wish to appeal their conviction
  • Want to file a petition for Post Conviction Relief

I am admitted to practice in New Jersey, New York, the Federal Courts for the Southern District of New York and the District of New Jersey, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second and Third Circuit.

What Can a Conviction Do to Your Immigration Status?

If you are not a citizen of the United States, a criminal conviction can trigger removal proceedings against you by the Federal Government. Even municipal ordinances and misdemeanors are considered "convictions" for immigration purposes.

There are very limited reliefs from deportation (Waivers) when a crime involves an act of moral turpitude or controlled substances are involved. Even in the toughest cases, a criminal defense attorney with experience in representing immigrants can negotiate a guilty plea to an offense that will not impact your immigration status.

I Have Defended a Variety of Complex Criminal Charges

In the last few years, I have handled many criminal cases including, but not limited, to:

Experience Working Directly With ICE

As part of the superior legal representation offered by my law firm, I can file a motion for bail review in the Superior Court of New Jersey in as little as 2 days after being retained. I also have experience working with ICE, when an immigration detainer prevents a client from being released from jail, and with appealing immigration bond determination to an immigration judge or to the Board of Immigration Appeals.
