A: Whenever there is an immigration issue involved it is a big deal. A lawyer cannot advise you as to what the best course of action is in you case until she or he looks at all of the evidence. I have handled DUI cases for dozens of immigrants over the years and I can tell that immigration issues are always complex and you will need to get advice from an immigration lawyer as well.
