Often times a Criminal Practice goes hand by hand with an Immigration Practice. Your criminal attorney should either work with an immigration attorney or be experienc...ed in immigration law. These cases are tough, but if properly addressed at the State Court level, a lot of issues can be avoided with Immigration and Customs Enforcement, especially when it comes to drug charges or other serious criminal matters. At Rafael Tirado & Associates you will get an experienced representation both in criminal and immigration court.
