Robert J. Maher, counsel to Saland Law PC, assists clients in navigating the complexities that arise when New York State criminal law and Federal immigration laws collide. Understanding the impact of a New York State or Federal criminal conviction on a person’s immigration status in the United States can mean the difference between simply addressing the consequences of a criminal arrest or effectively facing banishment from the United States. The stakes are genuinely that high and the price of making the wrong decision are potentially that drastic. Being permanently removed from the United States without the opportunity to return is a grim consequence for many people accused of and ultimately convicted of a crime. Simply, that is why it is extremely important to get competent legal advice from an immigration attorney when you are not a citizen and have been arrested for even what might even seem like a minor offense. In the context of ICE and immigration law, there are no “minor offenses”. In fact, the immigration consequences of certain criminal convictions in New York can be catastrophic, resulting in far more dire consequences than the actual state law conviction itself.

Robert Maher is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), an organization dedicated to making sure that immigration practitioners work together to provide the best results possible for their clients. He is a graduate of St. John’s University Law School and has been practicing immigration law for the past ten years.
