Illinois and Wisconsin Immigration Lawyers
Starting a life in a new country is complicated, challenging, and stressful. So is fighting a criminal prosecution that could change your life if it results in a conviction. And so is filing a civil rights claim to protect fundamental freedoms guaranteed by our nation’s Constitution. Each of these three situations presents distinctive complexities, while each may be fraught with sweeping implications for your future. There is no need to confront these situations alone. A faithful, dedicated lawyer at your side can make a significant difference by bringing a wealth of professional knowledge and skill to serve you. Our Wisconsin immigration and criminal defense lawyers at Nicolet Lawyers believe in treating our clients with the integrity and respect that they deserve. Founder Spiro Nicolet is seasoned advocate, and their outstanding legal team is committed to providing you with high quality legal representation.
Citizens of other nations can take many different routes to the United States. They may come to join a family member or to start a new job. In other cases, they may be forced out of their home country by persecution based on their race, ethnicity, gender, or other characteristics. Sometimes non-citizens residing in this country are threatened with the prospect of abandoning the life that they have built here and returning to a world of turmoil that they had hoped to leave behind forever.
Immigration law is as technical and opaque as its real-world implications are immense. We can help you unravel its challenges in a variety of areas, such as deportation defense, citizenship applications, immigrant and non-immigrant visas, family-based immigration, and employment-based immigration. Our immigration lawyers—Spiros Nicolet, Ron Shapiro, Jason Sager—blend efficiency with a personal touch in seeking to answer the needs of each of our diverse clients.
Unlike many immigration firms, we are regularly in court handling deportation defense cases before the EOIR on behalf of foreign nationals all over the United States. We can represent people who are in immigration detention, not only in their efforts to stay in the U.S. but also in getting bond to be released from jail and securing work authorization to get back to their jobs. Our immigration attorneys have a strong record of success in removal proceedings, including several especially challenging cases in recent years. We can collect the full range of documentation, file an application on your behalf, and represent you at master hearings and hearings on the merits throughout the process. Our office can provide services in Spanish, Hindi, Urdu, Arabic, Russian, or Ukrainian for your convenience.
We also offer immigration and business advisory services to foreign investors.Your Allies for Fighting Criminal Charges
A person charged with a crime has a wide range of rights and protections available to them. They need all of these protections, for the consequences of a criminal conviction could extend through the rest of their lives, affecting areas as vital as employment and housing. We have crafted thoughtful, nuanced strategies to help Wisconsin residents defend themselves against charges of drug offenses, domestic violence, DUI, juvenile delinquency, and other crimes.
Prosecutors can be highly aggressive, yet even a case that seems to have strong evidence often has flaws that can be exposed. We take our responsibility as defense attorneys with the utmost care and work tirelessly to challenge the charges against our clients. Sometimes the police have obtained evidence through an illegal search, or sometimes the prosecution lacks credible witnesses. If you put your case in our hands, we will make sure to represent you with the vigor that you deserve.
An aggressive prosecutor can try to take away your freedoms, but sometimes other state actors can infringe upon your constitutional rights as well. When this happens, we can help you file a lawsuit to vindicate your rights. These actions cover a vast expanse from police using unreasonable force to detain you, to laws abridging your freedom of speech, expression, or religion. Again, the complexity of these cases and the magnitude of what is at stake mean that it is worth the time and effort to consult professional legal advice.Discuss Your Case with a Knowledgeable Wisconsin Lawyer
