Immigration Cases That Require Federal Litigation

If you have entered the United States: (1) legally after being issued an immigrant visa or non-immigrant visa and have overstayed your visa status; (2) illegally without any visa or inspection by U.S. immigration officials; or (3) legally or illegally and committed a crime in the U.S., you will need an experienced immigration lawyer to act on your behalf in federal court proceedings to challenge potentially adverse immigration decisions affecting your liberty and right to remain in the U.S. with your family or pursue job and business opportunities.

Our federal court immigration litigation practice extends to cases involving:

Federal Immigration Appeals

If an Immigration Judge has issued an order of removal against you and your administrative appeal to the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) has been denied, you have the right to file a Petition for Review before a federal appellate court having jurisdiction over the case.

U.S. District Court Litigation

  • Habeas Corpus Petitions — Individuals seeking relief from removal orders, bond denials, unlawful detention and other adverse federal agency immigration decisions may file petitions for writs of habeas corpus in the appropriate federal district court.
  • Mandamus Petitions — If your application for a visa, permanent residency, asylum or any other immigration benefit has been delayed by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) or Department of Homeland Security (DHS), you have the right to compel these federal immigration agencies to make a timely ruling in your case by filing petitions for mandamus in the federal district court with jurisdiction over the case.
  • Denaturalization Proceedings — If you are a U.S. naturalized citizen and subsequently commit a crime in the U.S., you may be subject to a federal court denaturalization proceeding in which your citizenship and right to remain in the U.S. may be in jeopardy.

We also help clients present successful defenses in federal court Removal and Deportation actions (where your freedom and ability to remain in the U.S. are in jeopardy) and in strategizing and advancing petitions for Asylum and Withholding of Removal under both the Immigration and Nationality Act and the U.N. Convention Against Torture (where you are given the chance to justify your right to stay in the U.S. because of a legitimate fear of being persecuted or tortured if you were to be returned to your homeland or last foreign residence). We have the experience, determination and fortitude to represent you in these and other federal court immigration litigation cases.
