The Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR), is an agency within the United States Department of Justice, and presides over immigration courts.

The U.S. government is represented in deportation proceedings by attorneys, and most individuals caught in the system go unrepresented.

Unlike criminal proceedings, there is no right to counsel in deportation proceedings.  We offer exhaustive deportation defense for our clients nationwide.

If you or a loved one is dealing with a pending deportation, contact us at 866-580-4203.

Consular Processing

Navigating the U.S. State Department Consular Processing is a bureaucratic maze of procedure and timelines.  The National Visa Center plays a vital role in preparing consular officials abroad with your Visa once it is approved and available.

We walk our clients through this maze and have assisted clients in over 21 embassies and US Consulates abroad with their visa applications.

There are many grounds of Inadmissibility under the Immigration Nationality Act, which are applied by the interviewing officer, and prevent many people

from entering the United States, even though they won an approved Immigration Petition via a family member or sponsoring employer.

A thorough analysis is required to save valuable time and heartache to know before-hand which type of waiver may be available, clearing the way for entrance into the United States.

Examples: convictions of prior crimes, prior illegal entries into the United States, living in the U.S. out of status on a prior visa, living in the U.S. with no legal status, etc.

Non-Immigrant Visa Waivers

Foreign nationals applying for visas to temporarily enter the United States (students, tourists, H-1B, investors, entertainers, intra-company transfers, etc) with prior immigration offenses can obtain a waiver under the Immigration and Nationality Act and be allowed to return to the United States.

Specifically, section 212(d)(3), allows many of the grounds which normally would bar reentry into the United States, to be waived.  The grounds include unlawful presence, immigration fraud, misrepresentation, and criminal violations.  These grounds have serious consequences with regards to an Immigrant Visas, and result in denial of entry.  If you, or someone you know, would like to re-enter the United States, please call.


Appellate work requires extreme caution to detail, as any issue not raised initially with the Board of Immigration Appeals, cannot be later brought to federal Circuit Courts on a petition for review.  We advocate aggressively for our clients providing an exhaustive record used to preserve your issues to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and all other Circuit Courts, including Writs of Certiorari to the United States Supreme Court.

We also assist anyone who has every received a denial from a USCIS adjudicating officer, appealing directly to the Administrative Appeals Office.  This includes any denial for an Adjustment of Status, Waiver of Extreme Hardship, US Citizenship, family based petitions, employment based petitions, and any other denial of an immigration benefit.
