Experienced Deportation and Removal Defense Attorney
For noncitizens, there are few greater nightmares than facing deportation/removal from the United States. Anyone present in the United States in violation of the immigration laws may be subject to removal. Lawful permanent resident may also face deportation or removal. Lawful permanent residence in the United States is a privilege, not a right. This right can be taken away if you are convicted of a crime or charged with a violation of other sections of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).
Defending You from Deportation
Attorney Alex Solomiany has extensive experience defending immigrants in deportation and removal proceedings in immigration courts throughout the United States and Puerto Rico. He also handles appeals of removal orders before the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) and Petitions for Review before the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Mr. Solomiany is admitted to practice before the 11th, 2nd, and 6th Circuit Courts of Appeals.
Who is Subject to Deportation?
Anyone who is not a U.S. citizen can be deported if he or she is convicted of certain criminal offenses, such as crimes of violence, drug offenses or crimes of fraud. One may also be subject to deportation if he or she is here illegally or entered the United States legally with a visa but stayed longer than authorized.
If you commit fraud on a visa or passport application, you may face both deportation and criminal prosecution.
Filing a Waiver to Avoid Deportation
Depending on your immigration status and the crime you are charged with, you may be able to avoid deportation by filing for a waiver of the grounds of removal. In considering whether to grant a waiver, an immigration judge balances the positive equities, such as family ties, employment history and rehabilitation against the criminal conviction. As your lawyer, Mr. Solomiany will appear with you before an immigration judge and will zealously represent you and fight to avoid deportation or removal from the United States.
With over 25 years of immigration law experience, Mr. Solomiany can determine what types of criminal convictions would subject you to deportation and what defenses are available to keep you from being deported. He has successfully filed 212(c), 212(h), 212(i) waivers and cancellation of removal before the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and immigration courts throughout the United States and Puerto Rico.
If the immigration judge denies your deportation waiver, Mr. Solomiany can file a petition to review your case before the BIA and appellate courts. He has successfully represented immigrants in removal actions and appeals throughout the United States, including Florida, New York, New Jersey, Louisiana, Georgia, Texas, Oklahoma, Michigan, Puerto Rico, Nevada, Arizona and California.
Vacating Criminal Convictions
Sometimes the best way to win a removal case is to have the criminal conviction vacated. As your attorney, Mr. Solomiany will look for defenses that could lead to vacating your criminal conviction and reopening your deportation case.
