3919 Woodside Ave Woodside, NY 11377 (917) 475-0325 Mon – Fri 08.30 a.m – 7.00 p.m, Sat 9 a.m - 3 p.m Cash, all cc, checks From the many types of clients that appear in my office, some of the saddest stories are probably from clients that are seeking asylum in the United States. It is true that every personal story has its own tragedies. However, most of the individuals I meet seeking asylum have lived through some horrific events unlike most. These cases should be taken extremely serious as someone’s life is likely at stake. Returning an asylum seeker back to the country that they are scared to return to is something that I just can’t live with. It is because of this, that I feel that I have a great obligation to try to protect my client and their family. There are various types of removal proceedings where an individual may be deported from the United States, including administrative removal, judicial removal, expedited removal, removal proceedings under the Section 240(a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, and removal pursuant to entry under the Visa Waiver Program. The most common form is removal proceedings before the Immigration Judge. These cases are initiated with the issuance of a “Notice to Appear” which is issued by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and served/filed with the Immigration Court. It is very important to be represented by competent and experienced lawyers in any removal proceedings. Individuals have a right to an attorney at no cost to the government, which basically means that unlike criminal court, an individual has a right to hire and pay for an attorney. The government will not pay for the individual to be represented by a lawyer.
