About Me

My principal practice areas are immigration, deportation defense, and appellate work in both immigration and criminal defense. In addition, I practice in Social Security Disability Appeals and personal injury claims. 


My law review article, published by a legal journal for the University of San Francisco Law School, was cited by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal in an en banc decision. 


This article on what constitutes Membership in a Particular Social Group under U.S. asylum law was cited twice in the dissent by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in their recent en banc decision, Henriquez-Rivas v. Holder, 707 F.3d 1081, 1095 (2013)


The title of my article was Defining a Core Zone of Protection in Asylum Law, 10 J.L. & Soc. Challenges 22 (2008)

    Stanley Radtke is an intelligent, diligent, creative, and capable attorney. I've worked with Stan in a variety of settings over a number of years. I've reviewed appellate briefs he's written for the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, as well as the petitions for writs of certiorari he has submitted to the United States Supreme Court. In all cases, Stan has presented the courts with solid and sometimes novel arguments. I wouldn't hesitate to refer my friends to Stan for assistance.
