New Relief for DEJ Drug Convictions - Penal Code Section 1203.43

Effective January 1, 2016, a new law was enacted, Penal Code Section 1203.43, which can provide substantial benefits for documented and undocumented immigrants who accepted "deferred entry of judgment" pursuant to Penal Code Section 1000 thinking it would keep their record clean of a drug or narcotics conviction.

If you have suffered a conviction for possession of a drug or controlled substance, and are either pursuing lawful status or wish to avoid serious immigration consequences such as deportation (removal), exclusion (inadmissibility), or denial of naturalization (citizenship), you may be able to petition the court to clear your record.

Contact the my law office immediately for a free consultation to determine if you are eligible for such relief.
