DUI and citizenship

Question: I have green card in March was eligible to apply for citizenship but got a DUI (first DUI) in Glendale, CA. How will this DUI effect my citizenship application. I haven’t applied for it yet.
Answer: You will not be able to become a citizen with pending criminal charges or while you are on probation. I would recommend that you contact an immigration attorney to discuss options. Call me (a DUI defense attorney) to help fight your DUI case, potentially reduce or dismiss charges, and mitigate consequences.
