ASYLUM AND WITHHOLDING OF REMOVAL APPLICATIONS

Our Asylum and Withholding of Removal team assists individuals who have experienced past persecution or who have a well-founded fear of future persecution in their home country. We handle both affirmative applications with the US Citizenship and Immigration Services and defensive cases in the Immigration Court.


IMMIGRATION CONSEQUENCES OF CRIMINAL CHARGES

The nexus between criminal law and immigration law is ever-changing and requires immigration attorneys to be up-to-date on a large body of case law. Our office regularly works with criminal defense attorneys to ensure that an alien charged with a crime is able to avoid negative immigration consequences from pleas or convictions, whenever possible.
