Your immigration attorney told you to get it done. So why would you ask strangers if it would help? By the way it could help.
The above information does not establish an attorney client relationship nor is it meant to provide legal advice.
Judges will rarely reduce your sentence nunc pro tunc if your request is based on immigration consequences. That was not always the case. You may be eligible for cancellation of removal or other post conviction relief. Talk to an immigration attorney familiar with post conviction remedies. Call Fernando Leone at 951.764.2342.
If it were not helpful, why would your attorney tell you to do it?
You have an attorney. He/she knows the facts of your case. We do not. You need to ask your questions from your attorney.
You are essentially asking us to second guess your attorney without having all the facts. No competent attorney is going to do that.
You certainly are entitled to a second opinion. However, rendering a second opinion requires an analysis of all the facts, including any filings by your present attorney. That is not something that can be done for free through Avvo. You would need to retain an attorney for the purpose of giving you that second opinion.
J Charles Ferrari Eng & Nishimura 213.622.2255 The statement above is general in nature and does not constitute legal advice, as not all the facts are known. You should retain an attorney to review all the facts specific to your case in order to receive advise specific to your case. The statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship. Answers on Avvo can only be general ones, as specific answers would require knowledge of all the facts. As such, they may or may not apply to the question.
