At the Law Offices of Robert Tsigler, Michael Zigismund is an integral member of both the criminal defense and immigration teams.

For the firm’s criminal defense department, Mr. Zigismund handles a wide variety of matters at both the state and federal levels. He has represented clients facing charges including Murder, Assault, Weapons crimes, Drug crimes, Sex crimes, and Theft crimes, among others.

Mr. Zigismund’s unique expertise in immigration consequences for criminal defendants is indispensable for clients who are simultaneously struggling with both immigration and criminal issues. He also advises the family department on these issues.

For the firm’s immigration department, Mr. Zigismund directs all cases. As an immigrant himself, Mr. Zigismund personally understands the hardships facing anyone caught in America’s immigration system. His cases include removal defense, applications before USCIS, Department of State, ICE, and CBP, and appeals before the BIA and Circuit Courts of Appeals.

Practicing in over 50 jurisdictions, Mr. Zigismund often works on post-conviction relief, clemency, record sealing, SORA (sex offender registry) modification, subpoenas, out-of-court settlements for criminal activity, victim representation, extradition, and government investigation with such agencies as NYPD, ACS, DMV, Department of Labor, FBI, ICE, CBP, HSI, and the USPS, among others.

Before joining Tsigler Law, Mr. Zigismund practiced a wide range of fields, including corporate transactions, tort and contract litigation, bankruptcy, insurance, and landlord-tenant, among others. As such, he carries a legal sensibility few other lawyers possess. His broad base of knowledge, experience, and singular passion for criminal justice and immigration, atop his significant experience in both, are key to Mr. Zigismund’s success when fighting for the rights of his clients.
