    I am an immigration lawyer and have had the pleasure of working with Mitri. He is very sensitive to potential immigration consequences of certain convictions and will work to craft a "safe plea" for the noncitizen facing criminal charges. I do not hesitate to refer my clients to him as i know he well serve them well.
