Immigration Deportation Proceedings throughout

Long Island and the New York Area

Have you received a notice to appear for a deportation hearing? If so, it is vital to consult with an experienced New York immigration lawyer as soon as possible. You should never appear before an immigration judge for a deportation hearing without having an experienced immigration lawyer at your side. Even green card holders should seek legal representation to obtain proactively the available remedies and relief in their cases. For many immigrants, legal remedies or criminal defense strategies exist that can help them avoid deportation.

Deportation is the official removal of an immigrant from the United States and return to the person’s country of origin. When an immigration judge determines that you have violated certain immigration or criminal laws, deportability may become an issue.

  • Requiring need-based government assistance because of causes arising before U.S. entry

  • Other immigration law violations
