Immigration – Removal/Deportation Defense and Inadmissibility Issues

The attorneys at Walker & Associates represent people on all matters relating to removal, deportation, and inadmissibility.

Legal Representation throughout the removal proceedings may include, but is not limited to, the following:

  • visit the person in jail or detention
  • request a bond from the immigration agency or judge so the person may be released from detention pending a decision in their removal case
  • evaluate and advise on the availability of any relief which might enable the person to avoid removal and remain lawfully in the U.S.
  • prepare all legal filings and prepare all witnesses for all court hearings
  • appeal an adverse decision to the immigration appellate agency and/or the appropriate federal court

Consultation with individuals and with criminal defense attorneys to avoide subsequent immigration consequences, including removal/deportation/inadmissibility: 

  • visit the person if he or she is detained in jail or prison
  • evaluate the state or federal criminal charge along with the pertinent immigration laws to determine if there are likely immigration consequences to a plea/conviction and how to minimize those consequences,
  • discuss legal immigration research with the criminal defense attorney verbally or in writing,
  • appear at criminal proceedings for immigration consulations, upon request

Admissibility issues at a border or airport:

  • advise people on proper methods to lawfully enter the U.S., especially if they were previously denied admission
  • advise lawful permanent residents who have remained outside the U.S. for an extended period of time – and wish to return – of any and all immigration consequences
  • advise people in the U.S. (with or without documentation) who wish to leave the U.S. and safely return, of their immigration risks and protections
  • advise people who were denied entry to the U.S., despite obtaining a visa to enter
  • facilitate the return of people who received an expedited order of removal at a point of entry
  • represent people who had property or money confiscated at the border and wish to retrieve it

Supervision and enforcement:

  • represent people who must report to ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) and meet other requirements under an Order of Supervision,
  • represent persons under an Order of Removal who are not yet removed due to certain complications,
  • advise and represent persons ordered removed who may be eligible for deferral from deportation
