Post-conviction motions are often an individual’s last opportunity to seek relief from a judgment and sentence entered by the trial court. Our Immigration law office has successfully vacated many convictions in order to save our clients from deportation.
A Rule 3.850 motion must generally be filed within two (2) years of the conviction subject to a few narrow exceptions. However, relief under a Rule 3.800 motion is not limited to the same 2 year rule imposed in Rule 3.850 motions, and thus can serve as an excellent alternative to vacating a sentence and conviction.
Mr. Murray’s experience as a former criminal defense attorney for the Miami-Dade Public Defender’s Office offers our clients the advantage of being represented by an immigration attorney familiar with the criminal justice system. Our experience in immigration law allows for a more thorough and convincing interaction with criminal prosecutors and judges regarding the immigration consequences of criminal convictions.
