McKinney Perry & Coalter, PA handles removal (also known as deportation defense) before Immigration Courts and the Board of Immigration Appeals, as well as federal court litigation at the US District Courts and US Courts of Appeals.
Removal Proceedings ("Deportation")
The Department of Homeland Security is more aggressive than ever in initiating removal proceedings against the undocumented and even resident aliens. Removal proceedings are formal court hearings and cannot be taken lightly. Failure to appear will result in an automatic order of removal and forfeiture of any bond. You can and will be physically deported from the United States. You have a right to an attorney before the Immigration Court, but there is no right to a court-appointed lawyer, as in criminal cases. It is your responsibility to retain a knowledgeable and effective law firm. Here at McKinney Perry & Coalter, PA , we provide representation in the following areas:
- Cancellation of Removal
- Voluntary Departure
- Adjustment of Status to Lawful Permanent Residence
- Criminal Immigration Matters
- Motions to Reopen
- Withholding of Removal and Deferral of Removal Pursuant to the U.N. Convention Against Torture
Although most of our cases are handled before the USCIS and our Immigration Courts, at times, we are forced to bring the Department of Homeland Security before the federal courts to fight for the relief our clients deserve. We provide representation in the following areas:
- Habeas Corpus Petitions
- Mandamus Actions
- Petitions for Review Before Federal Circuit Court of Appeals
Immigration litigation is perhaps one of the most specialized areas of law. It is critical to retain a firm with experience! Schedule a consult today.
