We Defend Criminal Charges For U.S. Citizens and Immigrants being accused of a crime is troublesome for both United States citizens and immigrants. If convicted of a crime, you may face substantial penalties and life-altering consequences. If you are an immigrant to the U.S., you may encounter the additional immigration consequences such as the risk of deportation and removal, or an ICE hold. Even as a legal resident with a green card or visa, if you are charged with a crime, you may suffer aggressive prosecution, harsh sentencing and eventual deportation. If you have been arrested or the police are investigating you regarding a crime, it is crucial that you protect your rights.
The Díaz Firm, PLLC, is passionate about defending Austin, Texas, residents from infractions of their rights and unfair criminal processes. We understand that under U.S. immigration laws, a variety of crimes can lead to detention and permanent removal from the country. We aggressively defend these types of charges, including:
- Aggravated felonies
- Driving While Intoxicated (DWI)
- Capital murder
- Drug charges
- Possession and trafficking
- Domestic violence
- Assault or aggravated assault
- Sexual assault and aggravated sexual assault
- Crimes against minors

Serious Penalties For Criminal Convictions
If you are a U.S. citizen that is convicted of a crime, you may be sentenced to years in prison and face steep fines. If you are a foreign national, you may face more severe immigration consequences. Immigrants may be forced to pay fines and spend time in an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention center, awaiting removal from the country. Usually, one is barred from returning to the U.S. after a conviction involving crimes of moral turpitude or aggravated felonies, even if the crime was not considered an aggravated felony at the time of conviction.
We Defend Against Deportation
Our skilled attorneys will fight aggressively to keep you from being wrongfully convicted of a crime. We can also explore strategies to mitigate the charges or find fair plea bargains or settlements, when necessary. We understand that being deported means that you may risk losing everything you have worked so hard to gain in America and that you could be separated from your family and friends indefinitely. It is vital that you speak with a lawyer right away if you have been charged with a crime, no matter how serious.
