A pre-recorded streaming VIDEO replay of the July 2015 webcast, Crimmigration: The Collateral Immigration Consequences of Criminal Convictions in Virginia.

Topics covered include:

  • The importance of understanding immigration consequences
  • An overview of the deportation system
  • Understanding Deportability vs. Inadmissibility
  • Crimmigration categories
  • Advice on handling the non-citizen client
  • Practice aids to include a Crimmigration Checklist and templated Padilla-compliant warnings (in English and Spanish)

In Padilla v. Kentucky, 559 U.S. 356 (2010), the U.S. Supreme Court held that the defendant was entitled to post-conviction relief because he entered a plea based on his counsel’s erroneous advice regarding the immigration consequences of conviction. As a result of Padilla, a defense counsel has an affirmative duty to advise non-citizen clients of the immigration consequences of their criminal convictions, or risk IAC claims. Don't let this be you.

In this first-of-its-kind seminar, experienced immigration and criminal defense attorney Hassan Ahmad will explain the collateral immigration consequences of criminal convictions in Virginia so you are prepared to tackle the issues.
