Mercedes S. Cano is the sole proprietor of the Law Office of Mercedes S. Cano.  She has extensive experience in the area of immigration law, and more specifically in matters involving deportation, political asylum, and criminal defense in both immigration and non-immigrations matters.  She has represented immigrants allegedly abused by United States citizens or permanent legal residents.  Ms. Cano has successfully represented immigrants in immigration courts in and out of New York State and before the Board of Immigration Appeals. In 1999, with funds from the Initiative for Public Interest at Yale University, Ms. Cano formed a not-for-profit organization that provided her with her first immigration issues. After forming a community center in Jackson Heights, Queens, New York, she created an immigration clinic that helped over 1700 immigration families. The research and handling of these immigration cases gave rise to the criminal and family practice she fervently developed after leaving the community center.

Her criminal and family practice has enabled her to be a strong advocate for the clients whose rights she skillfully defends.  Her legal talent and ability to relate to and empathize with her clients and community has gained her a solid reputation in her community.  (Please see award list).

Ms. Cano received her Bachelor of Arts in English Literature cum laude from Queens College and her Jurist Doctorate from CUNY School of Law.  She has lectured attorneys from CLRN, a community network of over 250 attorneys from CUNY School of Law, on immigration.
