Yes but you would be better served by a criminal defense attorney in this setting.

It depends on the crime. If your immigration attorney knows criminal law and your conviction has immigration consequences, then absolutely yes.
For state law criminal issues your attorney has to be licensed in that state, whereas immigration is federal and your attorney can be licensed in any state.
If you pay him and he agrees to do it, he can do it.
This answer is provided as a public service and as a general response to a general question, it is not meant, and should not be relied upon as specific legal advice, nor does it create an attorney-client relationship. Your communications with me are not protected by the attorney-client privilege since they are on a public forum and I have not agreed or even offered to be your attorney. No attorney client relationship exists or is intended to exist until I specifically state that a conversation is privileged. You may not agree with my answer and you may not agree with how I answer your question. I know that my bedside manner can be very abrasive to some people. However, if you decide to send me a personal e-mail to call me names or tell me where to shove things or tell me that I need to go back to law school because my answer doesn't comport with your google search, I reserve the right to publicize your message in any way I choose.
