The decision whether to admit you to the US is discretionary on the part of the Customs and Border Protection Agent with whom you interact. This means that regardless of whether you have a criminal conviction, a Border Agent can deny your entry to the US for a variety of reasons.

That said, US Customs and Border Protection has clearly stated that a criminal conviction for impaired driving will not prevent a Canadian citizen from being allowed into the US. This is due to the fact that impaired driving is not considered to be a crime of moral turpitude. For more information on an impaired driving conviction and US travel, please consult the US Customs and Border Protection agency’s webpage:

Glowing Reviews From Our Clients

My career depended upon the successful resolution of my matter, and I couldn’t have been happier with the way Michael handled my case. He knew right away the best strategy to take to allow me to have my charges withdrawn, and was able to follow through as he promised, for a very reasonable cost. I would highly recommend this law firm.

S.A.

I would definitely recommend Michael Oykhman and his team. Not only were my charges dropped but the professionalism and empathy I was shown gave you confidence knowing someone was working just as hard as you would be to obtain the best possible result. For anyone looking for lawyer he is one of the best hands down.
