Immigration law is a complex area of law, and in instances where criminal charges arise, the situation immediately becomes much more challenging to deal with. Mostly handled in the federal court system, criminal charges involving visa and immigration fraud can prevent an individual from being able to return and stay in the United States. Those facing charges need a strong legal advocate on their side who can effectively guide them through the legal process.

He has a successful track record handling complex cases involving alleged federal crimes concerning real estate fraud, federal tax crimes, federal drug crimes and more.

We handle immigration cases concerning the following:

  • Businesses that bring workers to the United States on a lawful work visa can be prosecuted if a migrant worker overstays his or her visa after leaving the business’s employment
  • Businesses that bring in workers on a work visa can be charged with “selling” that visa if the government thinks the salary/wages paid are too low relative to the cost of the process
  • Businesses that outsourced the visa application process to a vendor claiming to know the arcane rules that govern bringing in foreign workers can be prosecuted if that vendor made paperwork mistakes
  • Illegal re-entry into the U.S.
  • Falsifying immigration visas
  • Visa fraud
