About Me

I have been practicing law since 1990 and LOVE cases that other attorneys have called impossible. Most of my practice involves immigration cases that have a criminal aspect and criminal cases that have an immigration aspect.


There is a terrible misconception that aliens with crimes cannot win their cases. This couldn't be further from the truth. However, winning immigration cases when there are crimes involved requires an in depth understanding of both criminal and immigration law.


Even if you've already lost your case and you've been told there's nothing more that can be done, visit us for a second opinion.

    I have worked with Mr. Berke for many years on several cases. Mr. Berke is a brilliant lawyer of the highest caliber. His precise and in-depth knowledge of Immigration as well as Criminal law is truly remarkable and he utilizes cutting edge legal theories to achieve success in even cases that are seemingly impossible. He works tirelessly to achieve the best results possible for his clients and will leave no stone unturned in doing so. He has an excellent reputation in the legal community, including amongst state and federal judges, and fellow attorneys who often call upon him for advice on their most difficult cases. I wholeheartedly recommend Mr. Berke’s services to anyone facing legal trouble.
