Immigration issues and deportation occurs when the federal government formally removes an alien from the United States for violating immigration laws. Once deported, an alien may lose the right to ever return to the United States, even as a visitor. Livelihoods and families may be impacted, and in some cases, a deported alien may end up living in a "homeland" that he or she has little familiarity with.
Deportation is a legal proceeding, and anyone who is subject to the procedure has a legal right to challenge it prior to being removed from the country. A legal challenge involves appearances before a government body and the laws involved are complex and constantly changing. As a result, legal representation is essential for your best chance of avoiding deportation.
We take your representation very seriously. You need the most experienced deportation lawyers to be on your side in this decisive process. You deserve no less, and we welcome the chance to represent you, and to represent you well. Because mistakes or ineffective assistance by a lawyer can mean removal/deportation from the U.S.A., you deserve better than an unprepared or inexperienced lawyer. You have the right to change your ineffective lawyer.
Let us study your detention case and determine your eligibility for relief right away.
