Immigration Litigation

Deportation and Removal Defense

What Are Removal Proceedings?

Removal proceedings are legal processes used by the United States government to determine whether a non-citizen should be removed (deported) from the country. These proceedings are a critical component of immigration law enforcement and are typically initiated when an individual is deemed to violate immigration laws. This can include overstaying a visa, entering the country without proper authorization, or committing certain crimes.

Envoy Immigration provides unparalleled removal defense that advocates for any client facing deportation and removal from the U.S.  Our team is distinguished by its unique composition of former prosecutors, bringing a depth of legal insight and a breadth of experience to our removal practice. More importantly, we understand the gravity of facing removal proceedings in immigration court for both the individual client and their families.

Effective legal representation is a crucial element in these cases, and our firm has years of experience practicing before immigration courts across the United States, successfully representing clients in such challenging situations. We explore every possible avenue for relief under current immigration laws in order to find the most viable option for your case including Cancellation of Removal, Waivers, Asylum, and Adjustment of Status. Our knowledge, honed through years of specialized practice, is leveraged to give you the advantage needed in these complex legal matters.

Our services encompass several key areas:


Detained Defense

For individuals held in immigration custody awaiting removal proceedings, facing the complexities of the U.S. immigration system can be overwhelming. Our team is capable of navigating the unique procedural and logistical challenges of detained immigration cases.


Bond Hearings

We are committed to securing the release of detainees from custody while their immigration cases are being processed. Through bond hearings, we aim to reunite families and provide our clients with the freedom to prepare their cases outside of detention.


Removal Defense

Skilled in removal defense, our attorneys assist individuals who are facing deportation or removal from the United States in a non-detained setting. This legal process involves a range of strategies and defenses to challenge the government’s case and provide individuals with an opportunity to remain in the country. Our skilled attorneys navigate complex legal grounds to argue for relief or protection, including asylum, cancellation of removal, waivers, and adjustment of status, among others. With a deep understanding of immigration laws and a commitment to the rights of immigrants, our law firm offers comprehensive representation in removal proceedings.


Emergency Legal Interventions

In scenarios that demand urgent legal response, such as imminent deportation or stays of removal, our response is immediate and decisive. We understand the critical nature of these situations and are prepared to act swiftly to protect our clients’ rights. 


The Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) is the highest administrative body for interpreting and applying immigration laws in the United States. It primarily reviews appeals from decisions made by Immigration Judges and certain Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officers. Navigating an appeal before the BIA requires an in-depth understanding of complex immigration laws and meticulous attention to procedural details.

At Envoy, our team analyzes the case and decision to identify any and all grounds for appeal. We take honor in crafting persuasive legal arguments and compiling comprehensive briefs to present your case effectively before the BIA. Most importantly, we firmly believe in providing continuous updates and explanations throughout the appeal process, ensuring our clients are informed and involved at every stage.

Federal Litigation and
Petitions for Review

In the landscape of U.S. immigration law, a Petition for Review (PFR) is a crucial legal instrument that allows individuals to challenge decisions made by the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) in a federal appellate court. This process is typically the next step for individuals who have received an unfavorable decision from the BIA and seek to contest that decision on higher legal grounds. Petitions for Review are filed directly with the appropriate United States Court of Appeals and represent a critical juncture where immigration cases can intersect with broader aspects of federal law. 


Envoy Immigration excels in skillfully managing the intricacies involved in Petitions for Review. We meticulously assess the legal basis for challenging BIA decisions and strategically prepare your petition to present a compelling case to the federal appellate courts. Our expertise includes crafting detailed legal arguments, ensuring adherence to procedural requirements, and providing robust representation throughout the federal review process.
