In 2010, the United States Supreme Court heard the case Padilla v. Commonwealth of Kentucky. This case was groundbreaking in the sense that the court said it was a violation of the Sixth Amendment, if an individual's defense attorney failed to advise his or her client of the immigration consequences of pleading guilty to any criminal charge. This situation can be used as grounds to reopen a previous case. If you were deported or were prevented from re-entering the U.S., contact our firm for a free case evaluation.
