Deportation Defense

We have personally seen the stress and emotional trauma that being threatened with removal can have on an individual and family members. Being placed in Deportation with the prospect of being removed from this country and losing everything that you have worked for and cherish is one of the most stressful events one could ever face. If you or a loved one finds yourself in this unfortunate situation you want to have an experienced deportation attorney on your side who will aggressively fight for you. We have successfully handled the most complex cases in the field often times involving novel or obscure issues. If you already have an order of deportation we can assist in filing for Motions to Reopen or as a last resort request for Deferred Action and Prosecutorial Discretion to ICE.
