At Harris & Schroeder, we have seen firsthand how a DUI/DWI can disrupt the lives of non-citizens. Such convictions can lead to being classified as inadmissible or deportable, depending on various factors, including the number of offenses and the presence of aggravating factors, such as harm to others or property damage.

Our team is committed to fighting for your ability to stay in the U.S., knowing that your hopes and dreams may hinge on the outcome of your case. Trust in our experience to help navigate the uncertainties and regain a sense of control over your life and immigration journey.

A DUI/DWI conviction can throw a wrench in your immigration plans, leading to terms like "deportability" and "inadmissibility" becoming a part of your vocabulary.

We will work diligently on your behalf, striving tirelessly to safeguard your citizenship prospects. Your aspirations are our priority, and we will employ all our resources to keep those dreams within reach.

Creating a strong legal defense doesn't happen by accident; it's a deliberate, carefully orchestrated process. At Harris & Schroeder, we start with a comprehensive review of the evidence against you, including police reports, breathalyzer results, and witness statements. This thorough analysis enables us to identify any procedural errors or rights violations that could work in your favor.

Meticulous evidence examination not only strengthens your defense but can sometimes lead to charges being reduced or dropped. We are devoted to ensuring that every rock is overturned in pursuit of your defense.

An essential element of our defense strategy involves challenging the evidence presented by the prosecution. This could mean questioning the accuracy of a breathalyzer test or highlighting issues with the arrest procedure, such as lack of probable cause or improper administration of field sobriety tests.

Our seasoned attorneys have a deep understanding of the technology and protocols behind DUI/DWI arrests, equipping them to challenge evidence that might seem irrefutable at first glance.

No matter your citizenship status, you have rights that must be upheld in any legal proceeding. Knowing these rights inside and out is crucial to any defense, and our lawyers are here to educate you, ensuring that your rights are respected every step of the way.
