Aggressive Immigration And Deportation Law Attorney

A large part of the immigration law practice of Massachusetts immigration attorney John P. McKenna is the defense of people whom the USCIS (formerly known as the INS) is trying to remove from the U.S. through deportation.

As an experienced criminal defense attorney and former state and federal prosecutor, immigration and deportation law attorney John P. McKenna is exceptionally well-qualified to vigorously argue the cases of people at risk of being deported before U.S. immigration courts.

If you are not properly defended, a criminal conviction can result in your deportation, ineligibility for relief from removal and being barred from naturalization.

Attorney McKenna offers aggressive criminal and deportation defense. Few immigration lawyers have been prosecutors or criminal defense attorneys as Mr. John P. McKenna has. He understands how prosecutors think, and will force them to respect your rights and to prove every element of their case beyond a reasonable doubt.

Vacating Of Records For Legal Permanent Residents

When attorney McKenna successfully clears the criminal record of a non-U.S. citizen through aggressive defense of or motions to vacate past convictions, he effectively halts the deportation action against that person. The solution is usually in state court — before a matter reaches U.S. immigration courts.

For example, it may be possible to appeal to a state court where you were previously convicted and given a one-year sentence, and obtain a reduction in the sentence to 364 days. If the sentence is less than a year, you may be able to retain your refugee or asylum status, or legal permanent resident immigration status.

Attorney McKenna has been successful at vacating guilty pleas on constitutional grounds, modifying convictions, and reducing sentences — with the result that the alien at risk of deportation retained his right to remain in the U.S.
