Attorney Katherine P. Dwight enjoys working with clients, putting them at ease while guiding them through their immigration difficulties. She effectively represents her clients from the start to the finish of their cases. Her first priority at all times is to obtain the best possible outcome.


Immigrants Can Vacate Their Criminal Convictions

A criminal conviction not only carries fines and possible jail time but can also have immigration consequences. Our attorney has a thorough understanding of California criminal law and its consequences for immigrants. On September 28, 2016, Governor Jerry Brown signed into law Penal Code section 1473.7 that allows immigrants to challenge their convictions if they were not given proper immigration advice by their trial attorneys. With legal advocacy, tens of thousands of immigrants may benefit from this new law, even some who have tried in the past to vacate their convictions and were denied.

Another new law, commonly known as Proposition 47, turned many crimes that were previously felonies into misdemeanors. With our help, those affected can have their previous convictions reduced to misdemeanors resulting in important immigration benefits.

Also, for those who received Deferred Entry of Judgment for a drug charge and completed treatment as required by the judge, immigration consequences can be eliminated by filing a motion under section 1203.43.  Other remedies may be available for your particular issue.

This is a complicated area of law.  You need an attorney trained in immigration consequences of criminal convictions.  Katherine P. Dwight has learned from the best lawyers in the state.  She can help immigrants vacate their convictions and reduce their sentences. She is a committed and caring advocate that clients can trust to get the job done.
