IMMIGRATION

LITIGATION AND APPEALS

The firm's immigration practice is headed by Nicolette Glazer, a Specialist in Immigration and Nationality Law certified by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization. 

 

We have built our reputation winning cases others deemed lost or hopeless; we excel at handling complex cases with a convoluted procedural history or novel legal and factual issues.

 

We handle appeals before the Administrative Appeals Office of the USCIS, the Board of Immigration Appeals, and in federal courts. In any appellate case time is of the essence: you have a specified period of time in which to perfect your appeal, and these jurisdictional time limits are typically not subject to extension. Before filing an appeal your entire case should be analyzed by an experienced attorney to determine whether a motion for new trial, a motion to reopen, or a motion to reconsider is advisable in order to present new arguments or to supplement the record.

 

Appellate work demands forceful advocacy and creative argumentation. Our principals, and only our principals, work together to prepare each appellate case.

 

For those who seek our services before poor decisions or inadequate representation jeopardize your legal standing we welcome the opportunity to handle your case properly at its inception.
