Practice area


Our immigration practice has helped hundreds of individuals facing deportation in detention centers throughout the country. We routinely represent immigrants in Colorado - and throughout the world - dealing with US consulates abroad and those with visa and citizenship applications pending with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services ("USCIS"). A large portion of our practice is dedicated to asylum and protecting the right of refugees to remain in the US.  We also handle immigration appeals to the Board of Immigration Appeals, the Administrative Appeals Office and the US Court of Appeals.  

Whether you are facing deportation or hoping to build a better life for your family in the United States, we can help you achieve your dreams. Specifically, we can:

  • File applications for citizenship, green cards and visas
  • Interpret criminal laws and their effect on immigration status
  • Appear in court for necessary proceedings

A criminal charge or conviction can prevent you from entering or remaining in the United States. Therefore, it is critical that you hire a lawyer who possesses a deep understanding of the connection between these two ares of law. 

Our criminal defense practice represents those accused of misdemeanor and felony crimes, including drug trafficking, domestic violence, DUI and other offenses. We are particularly suited to represent defendants who are immigrants, helping to insulate them from the potential negative immigration consequences of a criminal case.  To that end, we are available for consultation with criminal defense lawyers regarding the propriety of plea agreements.

Couldn't do without him, green card holder now
My family is so incredibly grateful to Michael. I am a permanent resident now thanks to him! Michael helped me with my asylum application, work authorization and marriage green card application. Along the way, I moved couple times, had a typo in my paperwork, had some lost paperwork, etc and Michael guided me through all that. On top of that, he doesn't charge crazy fees like some other lawyers do and he's very responsive. I can't express my gratitude enough. Thank you so much, Michael!!!

Knowledgeable, understanding and gets the job done.
My husband and I had a difficult case and Micheal walked us through ever step of the process. He always made time for us and addressed our concerns. With Micheals help we received my husband’s permanent residence in less than a year. He was also very fair when it came to price. We would highly recommend Micheals services.

Amazing immigration lawyer
Michael McCarroll is a great immigration lawyer who I would highly recommend to everybody who needs an immigration lawyer. My husband was in ICE detention and we were told he would more likely not be able to bond out but if he could he would get a bond of $20,000-$30,000 and we hired Michael and he got my husband out on a $5,000 bond which is rarely ever heard of. Then of course we kept Michael on as our attorney to keep my husband out of removal proceedings and to obtain his green card. Even though my husband could have switched his case to California which is where we live but we kept his case in Denver Colorado because we wanted Michael to represent him. Yes we spent more money traveling back and forth to Colorado but it was worth every penny. I know a friend whose husband was fighting his case in California for 10 years and paid $15,000 and still got deported. So going to Colorado in order to have a great lawyer was worth it. Michael was always on top of everything. Made sure we had papers handed into him on time...had phone conferences with us...meetings...and advised us on what to do with my husband's DUI case which is what got him in ICE detention in the first place. He is very straight forward and will tell you how it is and doesn't sugar coat it which I liked a lot because that's what we needed to hear. He wasn't afraid to say "hey if you don't do this he will get deported so get it done" lol. Great motivation. Honestly though It motivated us harder to do what we needed to do and get the paperwork we needed to get. He is very knowledgeable about immigration laws...what helps your case and what doesn't and he will do everything he can to help you win your case. Most lawyers charge $10,000 we we're lucky enough to be one of his first clients back in 2016 so we got a great deal but by far he is the cheapest around. Plus he actually cares about the individual cases and people he represents. He was always checking on my husband's DUI case and making sure he was being represented well for that case. Most cases like my husband's case take 5-6 years to get resolved and my husband's only took exactly 3 years. It would have been 2 1/2 years but my husband's immigration judge retired so his case had to be continued with another judge. But 3 years later my husband recieved his green card yesterday all because of Michael. Without Michael's advice on completing A.A. meetings and community service there is no way my husband would have received his green card. He is the best because of his knowledge about immigration laws and knowledge about how to prove to the judge he deserves his green card. The night before his trial he met with us for about 3 hours to prepare us for that day. He was there with us until late and had court early the next day. His dedication to his clients is astounding. I can't even begin to explain how grateful we are to him for everything he did for us. We are forever in his debt. I really do mean it when I say He is THE BEST!!! and we plan on using him again for when my husband becomes a citizen.

The best immigration lawyer I ever talked to
Attorney Michael McCarroll is an amazing and dedicated hard working professional, I decided to be represented by him after reading his excellent reviews and a free face to face consultation with him, and he helped me win my asylum case in 5 months just 3 days back, during these times he was all the good things I read about him. He was well prepared for the final hearing and was even complemented by the immigration judge as "the most organised documentation I have seen in quite long time" thank you attorney Michael, you were the best.

The Best Immigration Attorney in Denver!!
We hired Michael one month ago to represent my fiancé in a immigration deportation case that has been going on for 6 years. Our previous attorney was getting nowhere and actually closed her business doors and left town after we paid her several thousand dollars to represent him. With a court date in four weeks we interviewed several attorneys to ensure we went with the best one. In the end we hired Michael because he was the most knowledgeable and up to date with current immigration laws. He was also the most affordable. We couldn't be more happy with our decision! After our consultation, with our next court date in just a month Michael quickly filed a notice to terminate citing recent changes in immigration laws. We had court this morning at 9am and I am so happy to say my fiancé's deportation case was dismissed!! We didn't even have to go through a trial, it was just dismissed. We were in and out of court in 20 minutes. I couldn't believe it when the judge said he was terminating the case. Had it not been for Michael's knowledge of the recent changes in the immigration law who knows what could have happened if it went to trial. This whole process has been a learning experience for us. So many attorneys out there quoted us $8,000-$10,000 to represent my fiancé, Michael's fees were nowhere near that. NONE of the other attorneys we met with were aware of these changes in immigration laws that benefited my fiancés case. All the other attorney's we interviewed charged a $50-$100 consultation fee, Michael did not charge us anything for the consultation. Our first phone call with Michael we knew he was going to be a sincere and caring attorney, he must have spent 30 minutes on the phone while we explained the case, this was before we even went in for our consultation. Bottom line is this, we have met with many many immigration attorney's in Denver. Michael was by far the most knowledgeable, sincere, caring, attentive and affordable attorney in Denver. We would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone who finds themselves in deportation proceedings. He really knows his stuff and is up to date on current immigration law. We have learned these laws change frequently and you need an attorney who stays up to date on the changes. Unfortunately there are too many immigration attorney's out there who take advantage of their clients. They really don't know the law, they over charge their clients, and don't care the way they should about their clients. I can assure you this will never be the case with Michael. He has given us our life back. For 6 years we have lived in fear that my fiancé may be deported. We can't thank him enough!

Amazing lawyer !
Michael is an amazing lawyer ! I struggled with my case for 4 years. In fact, I was denied for the first time so my case was much more complicated. For the second time around, I was awaiting for interview for a year, after hiring Michael I got the interview scheduled within a month. Not only that, he helped me gather all the essential documents and proofs of my marriage. He gave me clear list of information about what does USCIS expect and want to see. He is and clear fast at responding and communicating. Always stays on top of everything and WILL make sure you and your spouse are prepared for the interview ! Couldn't thank him enough for resolving my case. Very kind and humorous person, easy to talk to as well as professional and hard working.

Excellent Immigration Lawyer, Help us tremendously.
My wife got her green card in about six months time. Mr. Michael facilitated in all aspects of the INS applications, was very clear and helpful in focusing us on getting all the information required. His Guidance, counsel and most importantly review of all the applications made this possible as we had full confidence they were turned in correctly. They were no delay and we were confident going to our final interview, as even before we coached us through. Best Experience, thanks again Mr. Michael J. McCarroll.

Immigration Lawyer Review
Michael was amazing. My fiancé and I received him as our lawyer after our case had already begun and he helped speed the process up. What should have taken 8 months to a year only took 5 months. He responded to all of my emails, even the ones which were more unnecessary and mostly just me panicking of getting the process done as quickly as possible. I am exceptionally happy to have had him as my lawyer.

Mr McCarroll provided assistance to me in my application for naturalization. While this is a fairly straight forward procedure, he was very detailed and accurate in what information was required and what to expect in the process. During the interview, he spoke up to clarify several issues and asked for them to reword certain sections of their written statement to more accurately describe the situation. I certainly felt that I had a strong and knowledgeable advocate during this process and would definitely recommend him to others.

Michael J McCarroll
Michael was a great lawyer to work with. He is very dedicated to his clients. He is easy to get ahold of and keeps you informed of how your case is going. I would highly recommend Michael for a lawyer!

Señor McCarroll es un luchador. Aunque ICE quería deportarme a todo costo y el juez me ordenó deportada, el nunca se detuvo en luchar por me. Yo me decepcioné y estaba a punto de rendirme, pero el me pidió que tuviera fe y paciencia. Después de mas que un medio año de estar encarcelada por ICE en Aurora, el obtuvo mi libertad y el permiso de quedarme aquí legalmente, Les recomiendo Señor McCarroll a todos que necesitan un abogado que va a luchar sin cesar para obtener resultados. El es justo, inteligente y muy entregado a su trabajo.
