Deportation & Removal Defense

imm_courtOne of the most frightening experiences a person and their family can face is the threat of deportation or removal from the United States.

There are various reasons for which the government may commence removal proceedings against a person from the United States, including, but not limited, to:

    • Unlawful presence in the country
    • Certain Criminal Offenses
    • Misrepresentation at time of obtaining a visa or immigrating to the United States

A person in removal proceedings has a right to be represented by an attorney of their choice. However, unlike in criminal proceedings, the attorney will not be provided and paid for by the government.

At The Law Offices of Bernardo Merino we are here to provide you with experienced and zealous legal representation in deportation or removal proceedings, including bond and change of venue motions. We also assist in appeals or other post-order processes such as filing motions to reopen, motions to reconsider and motions for stays.

If you or your loved one is facing deportation or a removal proceeding, we encourage you to contact us for a consultation to determine whether we are fit for your needs.

To schedule a consultation regarding a deportation or removal hearing, appeals or other post-order motions, please contact us at our San Jose or San Francisco office. We are an experienced law firm in deportation and removal defense and look forward to being of help.
