Protecting Immigrants & Fighting on Their Behalves

The process for getting a U.S. visa or Green Card can be complicated. Without an experienced immigration lawyer, it can seem nearly impossible. At the law practice of Rhys Brendan Cartwright-Jones, Attorney & Counselor at Law, we will help you pursue your immigration goals and protect your rights when criminal charges threaten your future in the United States.

Whether you need a visa or you were charged with a crime in Northern Ohio, we will do everything we can to protect your rights. Call (330) 299-4077 or contact us online to schedule a free consultation.

Coming to the United States

The immigration process involves complicated paperwork and many steps. Whether you are an employer seeking to bring over a skilled worker or you are hoping to immigrate yourself, we have the experience you need to deal with the Department of Homeland Security and the Office of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration. We have handled many citizenship issues, including appeals for habeas corpus in the federal appeals court.

We will work with you to complete the application process for:

  • Student visas
  • Employment visas
  • Temporary work visas
  • Family and fiancé(e) visas

If you are currently in the United States facing deportation because your visa has expired, we will help you understand your rights and guide you through the legal process to fight against your removal.

Criminal Defense for Immigrants

Criminal charges can lead to your deportation. It is important to begin your defense as soon as possible. Do not plead guilty or say anything without talking with an experienced attorney first.

If you were arrested for a felony or misdemeanor in Northern Ohio, our first priority is to get you released from jail. Our Youngstown criminal immigration attorney will file a Writ of Habeas Corpus or work to have you released on bond.

With extensive criminal defense experience, we know what it takes to convince prosecuting attorneys, judges, and juries of our clients' interests. We will visit you in jail and work hard to help you get your freedom back while the criminal case is being decided.

Immigrants face unique challenges in the United States. Any minor criminal charge can pose a serious threat of deportation. If you are concerned about any threats to your visa status, contact our Youngstown criminal immigration lawyer to schedule a free consultation.
