Aggressively Defending Illegal Re-Entry Cases

If you, a family member or a loved one was deported for any reason, then attempts to re-enter the United States, he or she may face illegal re-entry charges. Re-entry after deportation is a federal offense, and it is important to have a lawyer on your side who understands how the federal criminal justice system works.

I am federal criminal defense attorney Neil W. Morrison. I defend people living in Greensboro, Greenville, Raleigh, Durham and across North Carolina. I can help protect your rights and the rights of those you care about in the Eastern and Middle Districts of North Carolina from Winston-Salem to Wilmington. Contact me online, or call 252-565-4441 to schedule an appointment to discuss your case.

The Consequences of an Illegal Re-Entry Conviction Can Be Harsh

The federal government treats illegal re-entry cases very seriously. A conviction can carry anywhere from a two-year prison sentence for people with no felony convictions to up to 20 years for individuals who have an aggravated felony conviction on their record. Further, anyone convicted of a federal illegal re-entry charge will have to complete their federal sentence and then be deported. With this much at stake, it is essential to get help from someone who has experience with federal criminal cases.

Helping You Build a Strong Defense

I understand how to develop a strong defense against these types of charges. I can argue that a prior criminal conviction was mistakenly charged as a felony. Further, I can challenge the application of whether the existing felony conviction is, in fact, an aggravated felony for illegal re-entry purposes. I can argue that you did not fully understand the consequences of entering a guilty plea for a previous felony criminal charge. There are a number of arguments to challenge federal illegal re-entry allegations and build a necessary and proper legal defense. I can build that defense for you.

No matter what the circumstances are surrounding your particular case, you can rely on me to take the time to explain the charges and to help you assert your rights. For clients who are Spanish-speaking, I work with an interpreter.
