Charles Richard Conroy

About me

My primary area of practice is immigration and nationality law. More than 50 percent of my work involves litigation. I represent detained and non-detained clients before U.S. Immigration Courts, the Board of Immigration Appeals, and Federal Appellate and District Courts.

With respect to Immigration Courts and the Board of Immigration Appeals, I represent non-citizens seeking asylum, cancellation of removal, waivers, and adjustment of status. In Federal Courts I represent clients with regard to petitions for review, direct appeals from federal district court decisions, complaints for declaratory judgement and injunctive relief, mandamus actions, and petitions for habeas corpus.


I also represent clients before U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services with respect to affirmative asylum applications, petitions for immigrant and nonimmigrant visas, applications for adjustment of status and naturalization, requests for humanitarian relief, and requests for extensions of status and temporary forms of relief.

Prior to my practice as an immigration attorney, I was a corporate lawyer working primarily in the areas of securities law, commercial litigation, bankruptcy law, and real estate transactions.


While no attorney can guarantee results, I believe strongly in providing personal service and putting in the time and effort for a successful outcome in a client's case. As an immigrant myself, I know how important it is for my clients to find the security and stability they seek through legal status so that they may move forward with their lives and pursue their own American Dream.

    I have known Charles for almost ten years. He is without question the most aggressive attorney I have met in the world of immigration litigation. Fearless, tenacious and ingenious. If I was in removal proceedings, I would hire him to be my attorney. Period.

    Charles is not only a very knowledgeable immigration attorney, but he is deeply passionate about fighting for the rights of his clients. He fearlessly pushes back against the "forces that be" of the U.S. immigration world where many other attorneys might give up and give in. I highly endorse Charles Conroy!
