Deportation and Removal Defense

If the United States Department of Homeland Security deems an individual inadmissible, deportable or removable, it has discretion, but is not required, to issue a Notice to Appear (NTA), which initiates court proceedings against the individual before Immigration Court.

An Immigration Judge (IJ) will then preside over the proceedings, determining whether the individual is in fact deportable or removable—and if in fact the IJ denies the relief sought, an appeal may be made to the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA), which has jurisdiction over most decisions issued by the IJ.

We provide representation in the following areas that bear upon deportation and removal:

  • Asylum
  • Adjustment of Status
  • Administrative Closure
  • Bail Application
  • Cancellation of removal
  • Convention against Torture (Cat) Claim
  • Crime Victim Immigration matters including post convention relief
  • Criminal Immigration matters
  • Domestic Violence Immigration matters
  • Motions to Reconsider
  • Motions to Reopen
  • Motions to Terminate
  • Voluntary Departure
  • Waivers
  • Withholding of removal
  • AND other matters/relief impacting removal proceedings to the federal circuit court of appeals


While most immigration matters begin and end before the appropriate Immigration Court and the BIA, some immigration matters may be appealed to the federal courts, such as the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and the United States District Courts.  A decision issued by the BIA, for example, may leave an individual no option but to appeal to the Court of Appeals for further review.

We provide representation in the following areas as well:

Federal Circuit Court of Appeals
Habeas Corpus Petitions
Mandamus Actions
