Read about one of our successes.

Our client came to us after he learned his immigration lawyer had been negligent with the visa paperwork.  The lawyer had failed to meet certain deadlines, and USCIS rejected the visa filing because it was late. The lawyer filed requests for reconsideration, and appeals, but the harm was done. By the time the lawyer confessed to the mistake, the client had been in the U.S. for more than a year past the expiration of his visa.  As a result, he now faced deportation and a 10-year bar on reentering the United States.  We stepped in and obtained a settlement that covered the financial harm and also gave the client an opportunity to resume his life in the U.S.

Sometimes, quick action may prevent deportation.  But sometimes deportation is unavoidable and the only remedy is a lawsuit for financial compensation.  We fight to help you recover from the harm caused by immigration malpractice.

We also help when immigration malpractice occurs due to

  • mishandling applications to obtain or renew a visa
  • mistakes that lead to removal proceedings or deportation
  • missing deadlines for filing applications, petitions or RFE responses
  • errors causing the loss of visa status
  • mistakes in securing employment authorization documents
  • pursuing an inappropriate visa for the desired status
