Weinstein, Bronx, for appellant. Cyrus R. Vance, Jr., District Attorney, New York (Alexander Michaels of counsel), for respondent. Judgment, Supreme Court, New York County (Gregory Carro, J.), rendered May 5, 2015, convicting defendant, upon his plea of guilty, of attempted criminal possession of a controlled substance in the second degree, and sentencing him to a term of six years, unanimously affirmed. Defendant's claim that his counsel provided him with ineffective assistance regarding the immigration consequences of his plea (see Padilla v Kentucky, 559 US 356 [2010]) is unreviewable on direct appeal because it involves matters not reflected in the record, and thus requires a CPL 440.10 motion (see People v Pastor, 28 NY3d 1089, 1091 [2016]). Defendant's assertion that a Padilla claim may be established by the absence of any record evidence of counsel's immigration advice is contrary to law.
