    Humanitarian Parole Granted
    Description:
    Represented a refugee stranded in a foreign country seeking reentry to the United States after being severely persecuted in his home country.

    Description:
    In this case I represented a Refugee and Green Card holder with a debilitating medical condition who wished to become an American citizen. Her case had previously been denied by USCIS.

  • Overstay with serious I-94 issue

    Practice Area:
    Immigration
    Outcome:
    Approved for Lawful Permanent Residence
    Description:
    In this case the client had entered on a visitors visa many years ago and was now married to a U.S. citizen. However, the client had made a serious (though innocent) mistake in sending the I-94 back with another person without having departed the U.S. I prepared the client's case in a manner carefully eliciting testimony and proof that the action was innocent and not fraudulent. USCIS agreed in the first instance and approved the client for lawful permanent residence without the need for a waiver and without placing the client in removal proceedings.
  • Difficult I-601 Waiver case

    Practice Area:
    Immigration
    Date:
    Feb 01, 2013
    Outcome:
    Waiver approved and client granted Lawful Permanent Residency
    Description:
    Client had come to the U.S. as an infant. He had gone through a rough patch as a young adult and had multiple criminal convictions. He had completely turned his life around and was married to a U.S. citizen and had 2 U.S. citizen children. USCIS found him to be inadmissible because of his past convictions. I was able to overcome this finding and after a difficult process I was successful in convincing USCIS to waive his past and admit him as a Lawful Permanent Resident. Client is now a Lawful Permanent Resident with a new purpose in life.
