Deportable Offenses Defense Lawyer in West Palm Beach

You came to the United States for a better life, but as a non-citizen, you do not enjoy all of the rights and freedoms that U.S. citizens have. For example, when a naturalized U.S. citizen gets convicted of a crime, he or she does not face deportation, but the same is not necessarily true for non-citizens.

If you are charged with a deportable offense, you are likely terrified of what the future might bring. However, the charge does not mean automatic deportation. Instead, you can seek counsel from a West Palm Beach deportable offenses lawyer like Ronald Chapman who has more than 30 years of experience in state and federal courts and can help you fight the charge so that you can stay in the United States.

What Are Deportable Offenses?

The federal government has a long list of deportable offenses, including:

  • Crimes of moral turpitude
  • Aggravated felonies
  • Domestic violence
  • Drug offenses
  • Firearm offenses

Law enforcement is often aggressive when charging immigrants with deportable defenses. Our West Palm Beach deportable offenses lawyer is just as aggressive when defending his clients.

When To Contact A Deportable Offenses Lawyer

If you are not a U.S. citizen, it is important to contact a deportable offenses attorney in West Palm Beach as soon as possible after you have been arrested. Your lawyer can review the evidence to see if it supports a charge. If it does not, he can speak to the prosecutor about not pursuing your case.

Unfortunately, the prosecutor might not agree to drop your case. However, your attorney can mount a defense to challenge the state’s case against you. As a sole practitioner, you will work directly with Ronald Chapman during every step of the process. He will advocate for you outside and inside the courtroom to help you stay in the United States.

Crimes Of Moral Turpitude

You can face deportation if convicted of a crime of moral turpitude. In general, these crimes are defined as criminal conduct that is depraved, morally repressible, evil, or reckless. Unfortunately, this definition gives prosecutors and immigration authorities a great deal of latitude when determining if something fits into this category.

Some examples of crimes of moral turpitude include theft, fraud, conspiracy, kidnapping, murder, and child abuse.

If the state charges you with such a crime, retaining a West Palm Beach deportable offenses lawyer like Ronald Chapman is critical. Your attorney might be able to get the charges dismissed or reduced to a less serious offense. Contact our firm to discuss your case today.
