Immigration and Customs Crimes Defense Lawyers

The lawyers at Murphy & Price, LLP, have proven themselves effective again and again against charges of immigration and customs crimes.

Immigration Crimes

Every immigrant knows that a criminal conviction can lead to immediate deportation, even if he or she has permanent resident status, and even if the immigrant has been here for years and has relatives who are U.S. citizens. Even if the individual is successful in preventing deportation, he or she may face years of stressful proceedings.

Three categories of crimes place an immigrant at risk of removal, or bar that person from permanent legal resident status:

  • Aggravated felonies, which may include offenses actually defined as misdemeanors. This category includes criminal acts that result in a sentence of a year or more of imprisonment even if the sentence is suspended.
  • Crimes of moral turpitude: These can include crimes such as theft, inflicting harm on another, and acts of deception, dishonesty, malice or lewdness.
  • Other offenses such as drug violations, domestic battery, violations of an order of protection, and firearms offenses.

Our lawyers have dealt successfully with all these types of charges. We are on your side, and we strive in every way to earn your trust and confidence.

Customs Crimes

Customs crimes often come down to acts of smuggling of money, goods, drugs, intellectual property and other valuables into the United States from abroad.

  • Import/export of stolen or pirated goods
  • Failure to declare or false declarations
