Legal Services

The Law Offices of Norton Tooby provides several types of legal services:

  1. Consultations to determine a client’s exact criminal history, and the specific immigration damage it causes;
  2. More thorough investigations and reports on exactly what solutions exist for these problems, both in immigration proceedings and by reentering the criminal court to change the criminal history by obtaining post-conviction relief, and
  3. Developing a post-conviction strategy, providing samples of the necessary papers, and recruiting local counsel best suited to win the case, and coordinating the post-conviction effort with immigration counsel through to the final conclusion of the case.
