Deportation / Removal Defense

Protection from Deportation or Removal

Experienced Immigration Attorney | New York and Nationwide

If you’ve received a Notice to Appear from ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement), that means the government has started deportation or removal proceedings against you. You may think there’s no point to hiring an attorney, as the government has already made up its mind. That’s not true. An experienced immigration lawyer may be able to raise a number of challenges to the removal proceeding.
At the Long Island City law offices of Jamal Jbara, we have more than 20 years of experience handling a wide range of immigration issues, including deportation/removal proceedings. We are licensed to provide immigration counsel in all 50 states.

An Honest Assessment of Your Case

We understand the personal and emotional consequences of the threat of being forced to leave the country. We will take the time to get to know you, to understand the unique facts and circumstances of your situation, and to learn exactly what you need. We’ll provide you with an honest and thorough assessment of your case, including your likelihood of success. We won’t agree to represent you unless we believe we can win your case and avoid deportation/removal.

Over the past two decades, we have helped hundreds of people get positive results in immigration matters. We will work closely with you throughout the legal process, keeping you involved and informed at all times, carefully explaining your rights and options, so that you can make good decisions about how you want to proceed. We know that the immigration laws and procedures are often subject to change, and we work hard to stay current with all developments, so that we can provide timely and accurate counsel.

Let Us Help Fight for You in Deportation/Removal Proceedings

We take an aggressive approach when representing individuals facing deportation/removal. We will conduct a thorough investigation of the facts and circumstances of your case to determine whether the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) allegations are accurate. We will also consider the circumstances of your personal life to determine if there are unique factors that might provide a valid defense to deportation, including:

  • You are an American citizen because of a parent or grandparent (as a general rule, citizens cannot be deported)
  • You qualify for asylum because of persecution in your country of origin
  • You qualify for a green card, or for cancellation of removal because you have lived in the United States for a number of years and have exhibited good moral character
  • That you have not been accused of any criminal act, that you have family and community ties in the United States, that you have a good job and pay your taxes, and that you provide no real threat to American society
We will handle all matters throughout the deportation/removal process, gathering and preserving evidence to support your case, preparing and filing all required documents, and acting as your voice in all hearings, meetings and proceedings.
