Drug Possession & Immigration: Margolis Law saves man from deportation by having marijuana conviction overturned

Our client came to the United States legally as a teenager. In 2017, he was one of dozens of Iraqi Christians arrested in a roundup by federal authorities. Our client was threatened with deportation on account of a charge for marijuana possession. Margolis Law mounted an aggressive defense under the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act and had the criminal charge dismissed, allowing our client to remain in the country with his wife and children.
