Attorney at Law, Of Counsel
Practicing criminal defense in the Bay Area requires special consideration for non-US citizens. The criminal court system is challenging enough, but immigrants may face additional problems that other defense attorneys do not consider.
That is why if you are not a US citizen, your Summit Defense legal team will include our immigration attorney Scott Mossman, who has extensive experience counseling non-citizens facing criminal charges.
Non-citizen clients may ask questions such as:
- Is my employment visa status at risk?
- Will I be able to become a naturalized citizen with a criminal conviction?
- Is there any chance of deportation?
Mr. Mossman regularly answers these and other questions for Summit Defense clients allowing them to make educated decisions regarding their defense strategies.
Scott received his Law Degree from the University of California, Davis, where he graduated in the top 5% of his class. He received his undergraduate degree, magna cum laude, from California State University, Sacramento. Scott is an active member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) and is on the Board of Directors for the U.C. Davis Immigration Law Clinic Alumni Council.
Scott gives back to the community by volunteering at various organizations such as Centro Legal de la Raza, the Asylum Program of the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights, and the Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC).
