Re-Opened Criminal Case, Deportation Proceedings Terminated

Case Conclusion Date: 06.12.2012

Practice Area: Immigration

Outcome: Case won. Deportation proceedings dismissed. Criminal Conviction vacated. Green card returned.

Description: Client was convicted of distribution of cocaine in Texas. This is an aggravated felony under US immigration law because it is a drug trafficking crime. He was a green card holder, but placed into deportation upon returning to the US from a trip to Mexico. I successfully filed a Writ of Habeas Corpus in criminal court. We re-opened his criminal case and got the criminal case dismissed. My client had his green card returned to him and was able to go home to his family here in the US.
