Protecting Your Rights in U.S. Removal/Deportation Proceedings in San Francisco Bay Area

From our Petaluma, California law office we serve clients throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. Call us at (707) 775-4531 or fill out our online form to schedule an appointment. Se habla español.

Our Deportation/Removal Defense Practice

We handle all matters related to removal defense proceedings (also known as deportation, exclusion or cancellation proceedings). The cases that we handle tend to fall into two broad categories:

  • You have been unable to get a green card. You entered the country illegally and have applied for a green card, but your application has been denied.
  • You can't keep your green card. You may have entered the United States legally, but have overstayed, committed a crime that subjects you to deportation, or the government has ruled your marriage to an American citizen to be fake.When you bring your removal defense concerns to us, we will use our experience to carefully assess your case, so that we can give you an honest indication of whether you should challenge the deportation action. We will not unnecessary get your hopes up if we don't believe you have a reasonable chance of succeeding in your claim.

We have considerable experience in removal defense proceedings, including situations involving allegations of criminal acts. We have extensively represented parents with special needs children, or parents whose children were born in the United States and would suffer "exceptional and extremely unusual hardship" if you are not allowed to stay in the country.
