How We Can Help

We can fight to keep you from being removed.  Some of the defenses we use include:

  • Uninformed Guilt - If a person plead guilty to a crime, but was not clearly informed at the time of their guilty plea that the criminal conviction would result in their removal from the country, they may be entitled to relief.  To prevent removal, we try to have the conviction set aside.  An uninformed plea is not constitutional.
  • Not Guilty - We review the criminal conviction to find grounds to have it overturned. 
  • Hardship - If removal would result in "extreme hardship" to the persons spouse or parents and the family member is a lawful permanent resident or U.S. citizen. 
  • Small Crime - If someone not convicted of an aggravated felony, has been continuously in the country for more than seven years, has been a lawful permanent resident for more than five years, and is not inadmissible from the U.S. on security grounds, the court may allow the person to stay.
  • Asylum - A person who has a real fear of persecution if they return to their home country may apply for asylum if the fear is based on their religious beliefs, political opinion, race, nationality, or membership in a social group.  Asylum may prevent to person from being deported to their country, but can result in the person being deported to a different country.
