Deportation And Removal Defense

Leveling The Playing Field In Immigration Court

In immigration proceedings, we understand that your right to remain with friends and loved ones in the United States may be at stake. At the Law Offices of Suzanne L. Capriotti, LLC, we draw on nearly 15 years of experience to help you prepare a strong defense. From our opening statement through our examination of witnesses, we explore every opportunity for demonstrating why your removal would not be appropriate.

How The Removal Process Works

A formal removal proceeding before an immigration judge is intimidating. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security starts this process by filing a notice to appear with the immigration court. That notice typically contains allegations that you have violated one or more U.S. immigration laws, making you subject to removal. In other words, you are already on the defensive and facing possible deportation.

The first step in the removal process is typically the initial master hearing, where an immigration judge sets a schedule for future master hearings. It is important to prepare a legal strategy even at this first appearance. You do have rights, and my job is to protect your rights to the fullest extent of the law.

Each case is different, and each client is different. I listen to your personal story and discuss the legal options available to you. I strongly believe in what I do, so I work tirelessly for each and every client to fight for the best possible outcome. Regardless of the current political climate, I will continue to stand up for your rights.

Acting Decisively In Time-Sensitive Immigration Matters

We also know how to act quickly. In addition to removal hearings, our client referrals include immigrants facing withholding-only hearings. In that proceeding, the immigration judge has already ordered removal, and the immigrant's remaining option is to demonstrate a legal ground for withholding of removal under the Immigration and Nationality Act or the Convention Against Torture.
