The U.S. Immigration System is extremely complicated and difficult to navigate through. The attorneys of Baret Law Group are experienced in the field of Immigration Law and are dedicated to serving our clients with all of their immigration and legal needs. With many years of experience in handling immigration cases, ranging from simple family petitions and naturalizations, to a variety of complex removal/deportation and federal litigation cases, we at Baret Law Group ensure that our clients’ rights are protected.
We do everything we can to make our clients feel confident that they are in good hands. The attorneys at our firm have over 20 years of experience in not only immigration law, but criminal law as well. This dual expertise ensures that our clients with pending criminal charges, who are not US citizens, receive the right immigration advice prior to entering into a plea agreement with the State or Federal government. Our clients are fully advised of the potential consequences of their criminal charges, and often, we will fashion a creative plea agreement that can minimize the harsh immigration-related consequences of criminal convictions.
Feel free to contact us 24/7 for any of your legal needs.
