We are here for them.

Uribe & Uribe APLC focuses the criminal defense section of its practice on the defense of non-citizen defendants in California Superior Court. The attorneys at Uribe & Uribe APLC are dedicated to putting forth an aggressive defense focused on achieving the client’s desired outcome even if that is avoiding adverse immigration consequences. The reality is that for many non-citizen defendants, the desired outcome in a criminal court matter equates to avoiding adverse immigration consequences as well as defending against criminal allegations to avoid penal consequences.
For non-citizen defendants in criminal court, the collateral consequences associated with how a criminal conviction and sentence will affect one’s immigration status often outweigh the penal consequence associated with the conviction. The United States Supreme Court has recognized that the most serious consequence a non-citizen defendant can face in a criminal proceeding is the immigration consequence attached to the criminal conviction. The reality is that a non-citizen defendant facing criminal allegations has a necessity to not only avoid criminal consequences associated with the conviction but to also avoid adverse immigration consequences such as deportation and removal from the United States. For instance, having a loved one removed from the United States can be devastating to an entire family emotionally as well as financially.
