Criminal Immigration Attorney
KNOWLEDGEABLE, AWARD-WINNING COUNSEL
Are you a non-citizen who has been charged with a crime? You need an attorney that understands the immigration consequences of criminal convictions.
When you face serious criminal charges as an immigrant, you are in urgent need of strong and dedicated criminal immigration defense. Criminal defense for non-U.S. citizens require a deep understanding of how criminal State law interacts with Federal immigration laws.
Green Card holders can be deported if they are convicted of certain serious crimes. Also, illegal immigrants must be very cautious when they are charged with a crime, because a conviction for an aggravated felony or a crime involving moral turpitude can be a ban from ever becoming a lawful permanent resident.
In general terms, an “aggravated felony” refers to certain categories of offenses for which at least 1 year of incarceration is imposed. An aggravated felony is a permanent bar of inadmissibility to the U.S., and the most severe ground of deportation of non-citizens. A crime involving moral turpitude (CIMT) is a criminal offense that is intrinsically wrong and morally reprehensible.

Until a good friend recommended me Mr. BERTOLLINI. This extraordinary lawyer was able to study my case in a couple days. His honesty and reliability convince me to hiring him.

My case was a bit special, Computer hacking, so it was a very difficult case for any lawyer because it required advanced computer skills. I had contacted many lawyers, Americans, Italians, and everyone had confused ideas. After I contacted Simone, I had good feeling, I found him very prepared and reassuring and his fee was reasonable. I risked up to 70 years in prison. Simone saved my life by winning the FIRST CLICK FRAUD TRIAL in the United States. Before trial he was always present by email to discuss the case, he came to visit me in jail on WEEKENDS, which other lawyers do not do. It was available 24/7 for me. He managed to convince the judge to give me access to the discovery with a private computer in a private room inside the detention center; no one has this chance. During the 2-week trial, he was able to destroy the testimony of more than 10 experts from the US government, Italian authorities, and others. (Beating the government is virtually impossible given the resources they have). The government had infinite resources and were in 2 prosecutors ,1 FBI SPECIAL agent, another lawyer, and a host of young lawyers . The judge was in favor of the government, and did not let SIMONE the counter-test of the government testify, With all these injustices he managed to win the TRIAL! After the closing argument of the prosecutor, I really thought I was going to be found guilty, but after SIMONE delivered his closing, everything changed, the jury seemed to be convinced and nodded with a powerful. His powerful and loud speech lasted almost 2 hours; it was professional, truthful and very confident. At the end of the trial the outcome was >>>>> NOT GUILTY of the 5 felony charges. Now I am writing from my home in Italy, I’m freedom 🙂 If you have to entrust your life to someone, call SIMONE BERTOLLINI
