Deportation Defense

Ms. McGill has represented hundreds of immigrants in the immigration courts including permanent residents that the US government is trying to deport because they have been convicted of a crime or those that are sent to the immigration court because they are undocumented. Both attorney McGill and attorney Vittoria appear frequently in the Los Angeles immigration courts and periodically in courts throughout the U.S. Learn More

Criminal Defense of Immigrants

If you or a loved one is being charged with a crime you should look for legal advice as soon as possible. Even more so if you are not a United States citizen as certain criminal convictions that appear to be minor can have grave consequences for an immigrant. Here, at the law Office of Angela McGill, we have experience with the intersection of criminal and immigration law and, if a client is charged with a crime, we would try to negotiate an immigration neutral offer from the D.A.

If you are an immigrant who has an old conviction you should consult with an experienced criminal and immigration lawyer to assess what consequences, if any, your conviction may have regardless of when it happened. In California there are several vehicles whereby one can go back to the criminal court and obtain relief such as expungements, motions to vacate the conviction or sentence, reduction of felonies to misdemeanors and certificates of rehabilitation.

Attorney McGill has assisted residents of Long Beach and cities in Los Angeles and Orange counties for over twenty-three years.

Affordable, friendly and informative! I've been dealing with immigration on my own for years, I wish I linked up with this firm sooner! I would like to highlight Maria, who handled my case with care, listening, knowledge and flexibility. This was a tough road with a lot of emotions, but with her help my application, which was not standard at all, was approved within a month of submission! Obviously, that has a lot to do with USCIS, but if I didn't have Maria and Angela to guide me on the right path, it wouldn't have happened at all.

Dear Novis McGil

Thank you once again for the GREAT service. We were very impressed by you and you staff. Less than 13 months from our first meeting with you to GREEN CARD. Brilliant, fast, smooth and friendly.

We really appreciate all the time spent answering our questions during the process. Having you at our meeting with INS was super. The fact that you had everything we needed for the government was important to the smooth flow of the process.

Thanks again, Paul & Rene
