Immigration & Deportation

Breaking News!
Deferred Action

Young people in America who are not citizens but were brought to the United States as children can now apply for deferred action. This means that they can have deportation postponed for 2 years. This is not related to becoming a citizen but is a step in the right direction for immigrant’s rights. The program does allow people to obtain a work permit and legally hold a job in the United States. Please give us a call today for more information.

Today, I.C.E. (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) agents seem to be everywhere; airports, train and bus stations and at all the prisons and jails, causing many non-citizen people with spouses and children, who have been in this country for several years with good jobs, to be deported in record numbers every day. Successful and well respected trial lawyers are ready to help you.

I.C.E. No Bail Holds

A non-citizen can be arrested for only drunk driving, or domestic violence and never be charged with any crime- yet still be kept in jail without bail. This is truly tragic and grossly unfair to law-abiding, hardworking people who will lose their jobs if not released.

When this happens, we go into immediate action to get the person released from jail.

Deportation Defense & Bail

When I.C.E. picks up a loved one, one of the first things we do is make a motion for a bail hearing. Getting the person out of jail is our first priority, and we do this as fast as we can.

Criminal Convictions

As Certified Specialists in Criminal Law, we know what to do to get rid of a criminal conviction that may be the reason for the deportation proceeding. Bad advice from your prior criminal lawyer regarding immigration consequences of your plea is good cause to set aside the prior criminal conviction- even if it occurred many years ago.

Political Asylum

A claim, supported by evidence that you have a well-founded fear of persecution based on race, religion, national origin, membership in some group or political opinion. Political asylum will, if proven, will cancel deportation. Our criminal defense law firm thoroughly prepares and documents all asylum claims.

Withholding of Removal

This remedy is available if the Judge finds a significant probability that your life and freedom would be threatened if removed to your country of origin.

Convention Against Torture

You need substantial grounds for believing you would be tortured if deported in order to help you remain in the country. Sometimes, this is based on the religion of your country of origin.

Cancellation of Removal

This procedure is probably the best defense to deportation. It involves the discretion of the Court to allow a person to stay in the United States if the factors favor cancellation of the Government’s attempt to remove you. Typical factors are hardship to U.S. citizen children, U.S. citizen spouse or relatives, length of time in the United States, job history and present status.
