Immigrant Removal (Deportation) Defense

Immigrant Removal (Deport…

We can represent clients in immigration courts throughout the United States. We may be able to resolve some cases through filing of paper motions alone, but most cases will require us to appear in person.

Individuals are placed in removal (deportation) proceedings for a variety of reasons. These may include, but are not limited to:

  • Conviction of certain crimes
  • Overstay of a visa
  • Violation of the terms of a particular visa
  • Entering the U.S. without inspection

Removal proceedings are initiated by the government's issuance of a Notice To Appear (NTA) that is served on the immigrant and filed with the immigration court. The NTA includes details of the factual and legal grounds for deportation, as well as information regarding the date and location of the initial Master Calendar Hearing in Immigration Court. You can also check the date, time, and location of your removal case by calling the automated Immigration Court helpline at 800-898-7180.

If you have been served with an NTA, it is important to contact us as soon as possible for a consultation. Removal defense work is complicated and labor-intensive, so the sooner you meet with us, the better prepared we can be to assist you.

How We Can Help

  • We conduct a thorough analysis of your case to identify possible forms of relief and craft a defense strategy.
  • We review the NTA and circumstances of your encounter with immigration to identify possible Constitutional or procedural defects in the proceedings.
  • We communicate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to discuss the government's position on your case and the possible exercise of prosecutorial discretion.
  • We file motions, briefs, and applications for relief with the court.
  • We represent you at Master Calendar Hearings and Individual Hearings.
