Realizing that he had pleaded guilty with another lawyer to "trafficking" cocaine, it seemed almost certain that he would not be eligible to get out of immigration jail and would not be eligible to remain in the United States. The only hope for Mr. T was to see if the "trafficking" could be amended to "possession" somehow. Through long and hard plea negotiations with the Dallas County District Attorney's Office, we were able to both resolve the probation revocation and amend the charge to possession post plea so the client would have a fighting chance to stay in the U.S. when he got to immigration court. Result by Mr. Mathur and Mr. McLemore.

Our client was arrested by immigration and was about to be put on a bus to Mexico. We contacted the lead lawyers for immigration and detention and removal to have the client released while we tried to reopen the case. We argued to immigration that the basis for deportation was invalid due to a change in the law. Immigration agreed to reopen the case and let our client go. Once the case was reopened in court, we move to dismiss the case and get our client’s residency back. The immigration judge agreed and dismissed the case and the client has got his resident alien status restored. Result by Mr. Mathur.

The kitchen knife in Mrs. V’s carry-on bag was accidentally put there in haste, as she and her husband were moving from New York to Texas. Airport security stopped them.

Result by Mr. Mathur.
Immigration Judge Reversed
March 24, 2009

Our client had a deportation case based on hardship to his children. Our client had been illegal for over ten years but in his trial he attempted to show that he was a person of good character and that exceptional hardship would occur to his U.S. citizen daughter if he was not allowed to stay. Due to his failure to pay taxes each year, the Immigration Judge asserted, using strong words, that he would never allow the client to stay. The case was appealed to the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). The BIA agreed that the IJ was unfair and that did not give our client a fair hearing. The BIA reversed the IJ’s decision and ordered that the case be sent back to be re-tried before a new Immigration Judge. Result by Mr. Mathur and Mr. Hussami.

Felony Reduction and Deportation Win
March 16, 2009
Our client was put in deportation proceedings for felony theft. The case involved the professional sports jerseys. The case was in the local news media. After months of working with prosecutors on the case, we were able to get his felony case reduced to a "petty offense" as defined by immigration law. Through this criminal felony to misdemeanor reduction, we were also able to file for his immigration status without issues to his admissibility. We used an old petition filed by his uncle to his mother to allow for the paperwork to be filed in immigration court. We convinced the immigration judge that our client's visa petition filed by his wife, in conjunction with his uncle's old petition and the misdemeanor reduction allowed our client to get his residency in the U.S. The immigration judge agreed and our client was admitted to the U.S. as a resident rather than being deported. Result by Mr. Mathur.
USCIS Withdraws Denial and Grants Citizenship
March 10, 2009

Mr. L was denied citizenship in October 2008. USCIS denied based on lack of good moral character, citing five traffic violations including several for driving with a license invalid. We argued that these violations had no basis for a denial based on moral character as they were not crimes involving moral turpitude. Moreover, that many people in society of good moral character are cited for multiple violations of traffic laws. After the administrative appeal was heard, USCIS withdrew their original decision to deny the case and approved our client’s citizenship. Result by Mr. Mathur and Mr. Humble.

Citizenship Denial Overturned

Our client was stopped for a routine traffic violation. After the local officer realized that our client was not legally present in the United States, he requested Immigration and Customs Enforcement place a hold on him. After hiring our firm, we were able to have our client released. Thereafter, we found that he had been here over ten (10) years and had a U.S. Citizen child. We also had evidence that the child suffered from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). We set the case for trial before an immigration judge to prove that our client’s child would suffer “exceptional and extremely unusual hardship” if our client was not able to stay. The immigration judge agreed and our client was granted permanent residency. Result by Mr. Mathur.

Naturalization Granted
September 25, 2008

Our client had a federal conviction for a conspiracy to conduct a financial transaction affecting interstate commerce. After this was initially discovered, the client was put in removal proceedings. After winning the removal proceedings based on a trial relating to extreme hardship if removal was executed, our firm then filed our client's naturalization application. Our argument that good moral character requirement had been overcome worked. Now, our client went from deportation/removal to having his citizenship approved.

Deportation Win
September 17, 2008

Our client, a Canadian, was married to a US Citizen many years ago. After filing immigration paperwork through her husband and having residency granted on a conditional basis, she later divorced. Not realizing that she needed to remove the conditions, she later re-married and then did not attend to her expired status. After many years, she left to go to Canada on vacation. Upon leaving she triggered a legal bar to re-admission under 212(a)(9)(B) of the Immigration and Nationality Act. Officers at the border allowed her to seek inspection in Dallas, Texas. After many complications, it was determined that she was subject to a ten (10) year bar. There was also the obstacle of allowing her legally back in so that she could file residency applications before the immigration judge. After a long effort by our office, we were able to get the border patrol to allow her in legally and get the immigration judge to waive the ten (10) year bar based on hardship to her family. The immigration judge also granted her permanent resident status based on her marriage to her second husband. Result by Mr. Mathur.

Deportation Win
August 26, 2008

Client hired our firm after his application for NACARA and asylum had been denied. Client's case was later heard by an Immigration Judge in Dallas, Texas. The case was denied as the client suffered a criminal background. Client had two cases in California and one in Texas. On appeal it was argued that the Immigration Judge did not clarify his decision as regards the asylum. The appeal's court, Board of Immigration Appeals, agreed and sent the case back to the Immigration Judge. Once the case was back in the immigration court, it was argued that the criminal cases in California had now been dismissed as the client had rectified those cases. Further, that the criminal case in Texas did not make our client ineligible for NACARA, as it fell within the petty offense exception. The opposing counsel for Department of Homeland Security and the Immigration Judge agreed. About two and one-half years later, our client was given NACARA relief and adjusted to a permanent resident by the Immigration Judge.
