Immigration Attorney

Our immigration lawyers believe in working closely with our clients to give them the best possible chance of winning their cases.  Immigration court proceedings can be a life changing event in your life.  The outcome of your immigration case will have serious consequences because the right to stay, work and live in the U.S. can determine whether families are permitted to stay together.

Why Hire a Lawyer?

Immigration court can be very confusing for those not represented by an attorney.  An immigration attorney can use his experience to help you provide evidence to the court explaining why you should be permitted to stay.  Unlike criminal court proceedings, immigration court is an administrative court and there is no court appointed attorney, therefore you should hire your own attorney.

Cancellation of Removal

Legal permanent residents may be placed in removal proceedings if they are convicted of a crime of “moral turpitude.”  An immigration attorney can help you determine whether you qualify for cancellation of removal.  Once it has been determined that you qualify, the attorney can assist you in building a case on why removal is not appropriate.

Non-permanent residents may also qualify for cancellation of removal, however the requirements are different than for legal permanent residents.  Non-permanent residents do not have to be convicted of a crime to be placed in removal proceedings.  An immigration lawyer can help you determine your best course of action.
