As an immigrant charged with a crime in Charlotte, there are two steps to take if you hope to avoid the consequences of a conviction and protect your immigration status. It is vital to exercise your right to remain silent, as you could make self-incriminating statements which could limit your options for defense, and it is advisable to contact an experienced Charlotte immigration defense attorney for legal guidance and representation. We are Attorneys Carnell Johnson and Elaine Nicholson, and we are dedicated to representing immigrants who are facing criminal charges. The effect of conviction on immigration status can be disastrous, resulting in deportation and removal. We understand that this is a frightening time for you and your family, and we will work tirelessly to defend you.

Our firm has successfully represented immigrants on legal matters such as DWI, felony DWI, and vehicular manslaughter. We can advise you as to the DWI penalties and how they could affect you, as well as what strategies could be initiated to seek to reduce the damage. We need to quickly evaluate how the charges could affect your legal resident status. We have defended those charged with possession, and cultivation, and we provide vigorous defense in or out of the courtroom for sex crimes such as child pornography and rape, as well as theft, robbery, burglary and shoplifting.
