Raymond Lahoud is a great immigration and deportation attorney. He well-versed in immigration and deportation laws and keeps current on every new law and updates to current laws.
From what I know, he has learned about immigration law by working for the best of people and earning a degree from one of the top law schools in the United States—Georgetown Law.
My family had a rather difficult deportation case that was focused on my brother. My brother was charged with several crimes in the late 1990s. After years, ICE came after him and arrested him. They brought deportation proceedings against him. Raymond Lahoud worked so well. He was able to secure my brother’s release from mandatory detention: something that is so hard to overcome.
While we are still in the middle of the deportation process, I am sure that Raymond Lahoud will keep working hard. Also, the costs are reasonable and he really works hard to make sure that all the work in the case is complete.
A definite recommendation. He is Allentown, Bethlehem & Easton, Pennsylvania's best immigration and deportation attorney.

I can't write any words that are strong enough to express how I feel about Raymond Lahoud and his ability to fight for his clients in Deportation Courts. My family hired Raymond Lahoud and Baurkot and Baurkot to defend against my sister's deportation to Nicaragua. She had a very difficult political asylum claim. First, my sister was subject to mandatory detention under the Immigration Law. Raymond Lahoud took it a step further and actually went to the federal district court for the middle district in pennsylvania and won one of the first habeas petitions in the country that succeeded in having my sister released from mandatory detention by immigration and customs enforcement. She was released from custody when all the odds were agtainst us. After that, he worked with our family and my sister to put together one of the most agressive deportation defenses that someone could ever put together. He is strong minded, more than capable, well-qualified, educated, responsible and above all, Raymond Lahoud is the miost dedicated attorneys I have ever had to deal with. He is certainly the BEST DEPORTATION ATTORNEY IN PENNSYLVANIA, NEW JERSEY AND NEW YORK and I know that as this law firm expands, Raymond Lahoud will be consiered, if he already is not, one of the BEST DEPORTATION ATTORNEYS IN THE UNITED STATES. I can not use any stronger words, but if I could, I would.

Mr. Lahoud is a top notch attorney and as a fellow immigration practitioner I've relied on his expertise and knowledge on complex removal defense issues. He's an asset to his firm and the immigrant community in his area.
