    Answered . You may be able to reopen the case based upon the misadvice but seek the help of a local attorney. Doing the immigration matter on your own? A mistake. Seek a criminal defense attorney who also practices immigration.

    There is no confidentiality online. Volunteering to answer this question does not create an attorney-client relationship. The accused is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. The likelihood of a positive outcome- postconviction relief and naturalization- is increased with the help of an experienced criminal litigator. Seek out an experienced criminal litigator for a free consultation. If you cannot find one on Avvo, search at the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL.org) Speak to several attorneys and hire the one that makes you feel confident and comfortable.
