The consequences from criminal convictions that don’t arise until after you’ve served your sentence are sometimes referred to as “collateral.”
But for the people who are actually affected by them, they are anything but that.
They can be devastating.
I understand this because I’ve spent my entire career helping clients and their families avoid or mitigate these consequences.
What I Do
For non-citizens, even minor misdemeanor convictions can lead to deportation. I have worked with dozens of non-citizen clients from around the world to successfully vacate (un-do) these convictions to avoid deportation and other immigration consequences.
Who I’ve Helped
I’m proud of the results I’ve been able to obtain for my clients.
But I’m also proud of helping my clients and their families navigate through difficult times with kindness, patience and empathy.
When I first sat down with Laura for my consultation, her compassion was apparent and her willingness to assist me was evident. I worked with Laura for a little over one year and throughout that time Laura proved to be dedicated and disciplined in her expertise and was very knowledgeable. She provided guidance throughout the court process and ensured I understood next steps. Her fee was also quite reasonable. I would highly recommend utilizing Laura’s services.
Thank you so much for your help and believing in this case. It’s still hard to believe that the sentence has been vacated. This was only possible because of the hours and time you put into your cases.
Being represented by attorney Laura Mannion has been a great experience. She is very intelligent, knowledgeable, and extremely productive, and specializes in SORB cases. She’s very professional, and dedicated and able to convey all the options and possible results in a very understandable manner and she would keep me updated throughout the process. I’m really satisfied with the outcome on my case and I would highly recommend Laura to others.
I remember the day I was in a desperate situation with my immigrant situation when I was recommended to this amazing attorney. I didn’t know what to expect or what we were going to do with this old case that was being used against me in immigration court. Laura was able to overturn the conviction and help me win. I couldn’t be more satisfied and could not recommend a better attorney than Laura. She really went above and beyond and even when the odds were against us she pulled through. She was passionate, she was knowledgeable and presented a very good case. Now I can relax and be at ease knowing that I was in good hands thanks to Laura.
Laura Mannion was an amazing criminal defense lawyer for me. I am very grateful to have her to be my lawyer. She helped represent my case in 2018 when I was denied citizenship three times by an immigration officer due to a drug conviction. I learned that I could not become a citizen and could even get deported. I was very disappointed and frustrated when reading the letter that the immigration officer sent me. I felt like living in America for me came to an end of the road. I have no voice if I never became a citizen in this country. I could not be able to vote, get a job, work in the public office, and most important of all, that I will can get deported. I was introduced to Laura through my church friend who was a prosecutor. He referred me to a program who then referred me to Laura. She said that Laura Mannion is the best criminal attorney for my type of case. She specializes in this area.
