In addition, our academic background allows us to competently handle transnational matters, such as international business litigation and international family law. As international litigators, also assist clients in enforcing foreign judgments and foreign arbitration awards in the United States. Our litigation attorneys earned academic qualifications in both European and American law schools.
Moreover, we have substantial experience with criminal immigration matters. We represent non-citizens in removal proceedings, as well as individuals charged with Federal immigration crimes, such as marriage fraud, documents fraud, and harboring an illegal alien.
We specialize in deportation and removal hearings in immigration court. We possess a thorough knowledge of the immigration consequences of criminal convictions and the waivers and the remedies available to individuals and families in immigration court proceedings. We also handle petitions for a Writ of Coram Nobis.
There are a number of reliefs from removal that allow a non-citizen to remain in this country. Individuals in removal proceedings may be able to avoid removal if they qualify for “cancellation of removal” relief. Immigration law provides for two forms of cancellation relief. One form of cancellation is for applicants who are lawful permanent residents and the other form is for non-permanent residents.
In order for a lawful permanent resident to qualify for cancellation of removal, she must show that she: (1) has been a foreign national lawfully admitted for permanent residence for not less than 5 years, (2) has resided in the United States continuously for 7 years after having been admitted in any status, and (3) had not been convicted of any aggravated felony.
For non-permanent residents to qualify for relief, a deportable or inadmissible applicant must establish that he or she: (1) has been physically present in the United States for a continuous period of not less than 10 years immediately preceding the date of such application; (2) has been a person of good moral character during such period; (3) has not been convicted of certain criminal offenses; and (4) establishes that removal would result in exceptional and extremely unusual hardship to the foreign national’s spouse, parent, or child, who is a citizen of the United States or a foreign national lawfully admitted for permanent residence.
We are experienced litigators with extensive, on-going experience in evaluating, preparing and trying lawsuits, both at the trial and appellate levels. In civil cases, this includes handling all phases of liability and damage evaluation, pleading, discovery, motion practice, trial or settlement. In criminal cases, we aggressively litigate our clients’ cases to ensure the best result possible. In representing non-citizens, we insure that our client does not plead guilty to a crime involving moral turpitude or aggravated felony, which could prejudice his or her immigration status.
We also handle appeals matters. Our litigators have superior writing skills and appellate advocacy. We successfully appealed before Appellate Divisions in New York and New Jersey, as well as immigration appeals in Federal Court and before the Board of Immigration Appeals.
