Even the simplest of misdemeanors that appear to have minor consequences per Florida Law can result in inadmissibility and deportation according to Federal Law. We at Coviello Law, P.A., are well aware of the Federal Immigration Code and its affect on clients and their families.
If you or a relative’s legal status is in question, or if you are a lawful permanent resident (LPR) and you or a family member have been arrested, or accused of domestic battery, any drug offense, felony or crime of moral turpitude, please contact our office to discuss your options.
