Question
What are examples of "moral turpitude" cases that can bar someone from immigrating to the US? Specifically, is being convicted of reckless imprudence resulting in homicide  (related to medical negligence) included? If yes, would getting an immigration lawyer help?

Answer
Please see:

You would surely need an immigration attorney expert in criminal matters; whether it would help, depends on conviction and charges, and whether you pled guilty or went on trial.  Your attorney would need to review all your documents before making any suggestion and/or opinion.  

Best wishes,
