Immigration law is extremely complex and takes years for attorneys to learn. As a result, even after the Padilla ruling, not all criminal defense attorneys have been advising their clients correctly and immigrants still plea to crimes without understanding the potential immigration consequences. For years, immigration and criminal defense attorneys have been fighting to reopen the convictions of immigrants not properly advised of the immigration consequences of their convictions. Yet, Georgia courts were extremely resistant, consistently denying petitions to reopen convictions that they should have granted.
