    I am committed to helping my clients get the Social Security disability benefits they need.

I can assist you in obtaining the benefits you deserve.

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).

He was sure to explain every step to me in detail and with patience, ensuring I knew what we were facing and how the legal processes worked.

Job Well Done
I highly recommend Mr. Radtke as an immigration lawyer. He is absolutely well educated, honest, and a knowledgeable lawyer. Mr. Radtke was recommended to me through co-workers to resolve my immigration situation. I had hired three other lawyers before him, wasted eight years, and none of them got me anywhere. I flew all the way to San Francisco to meet with Mr. Radtke and he showed alot of knowledge and confidence about how to resolve my situation. I put my trust in him and he came through for me. I am very happy with his performance, and attitude. I would recommend him to everyone I know. Please note that I consulted at least 10 other lawyers before him and none of them could help me. Thank you Mr. Radtke, I am on my way to getting my green card.

Great Service, Very Knowledgeable, Great Outcome
Stan represented us in a social security case. We had to go before a judge and we decided that we wanted representation. We decided to hire Stan based on his hard work and diligence. After hiring Stan he went to work right away collecting facts and researching our case. We met with him before going in front of the judge so he can set the expectations and guide us. When we went in front of the judge, he handled our case very professionally. After we were done , he said that I think we son. We did win!! thanks Stan very much Hal

my question was answered ,but not what i was hoping for ,thank you avvo for yourhelp..kerwin ,when will my refund post to my account?
Response from Stanley Radtke September 2, 2016
Unfortunately, this 15 minute consultation, advise session, was not what the gentleman wanted to hear in regards to his situation. I answered Kerwin's question clearly, concisely, and correctly. The fact that he was unhappy with the answer provided does not detract from the veracity of the legal advise given.
