 I have always advocated against the  the Government by defending individuals charged with crimes. I have been doing so for approximately 40 years and may go at it for another ten.. I defend immigrants against deportation/banishment  from the United States  It is our due process system that affords us the opportunity to enjoy a vigorous adversarial legal  system that facilitates justice.

Why do I  oppose the deportation of immigrants? One compelling reason is that many immigrants were brought to the United States as children and subsequently placed into deportation proceeding following criminal convictions on  minor criminal offenses although they are as American as anyone born here.  One worst case,albeit all too common scenario, is the immigrant is not told pre plea that he/she is virtually certain to be deported if he/she entered into a plea "bargain". . The plea is entered into for a resolution to a criminal case that carries potential prison time and the immigrant gets probation. But, this is just the beginning of deportation looming over the immigrants' life here in the US. The US Supreme Court has rightly stated that deportation  "deprives one of all that makes life worth living". 


I represent clients  in criminal court, immigration court, appellate court and file to set aside past convictions for individuals who  did not accurately receive the virtually certain immigrantion consequences of their criminal conviction pre plea. I have represented immigrants in the Circuit courts throughout the State of Oregon, before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals  in immigration courts in Oregon and Washington and in State appeals in both Oregon and Washington. I have appeared in the Superior Courts in the State of Washington and before their appellate courts.

Before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals I have been able to reverse a deportation order to China which might have saved my client's life. I prevailed in front of the Board of Immigration Appeals in a important published case, In re Hadi Eslamizar 23 I&N 684 BIA (2004) which held that "aliens" convicted of "violation" offenses are not deportable.

 The Ninth Circuit held that Oregon Delivery of a Controlled Substance is not an "aggravated felony" in Sandoval v Sessions 866 F3d 986(2017)., as well as in Cortes Maldonadov Barr 978 F.3d 643(2020), both of whom I had the pleasure of representing.

I have represented clients in Tacoma Washington at the NW Detention Center, who had already been ordered deported, who through my efforts on their behalf, are now citizens of the United States.

I highly recommend Mr Bryan
Years ago, in 2000, my husband had a DUII and DV IV, we were recommended Mr Bryan for a friend as one of the best, and they are not wrong, my husband was already detained in Tacoma for deportation and Mr Bryan was able to rescue his permanent residence that the judge had taken from him, I highly recommend Mr Bryan since they explained the process to us very well step by step and always answered all our doubts, now we are happily married and have a kid, 10 years old, Thank you Mr Bryan, if was not for you, my husband will be deported!

Successful Immigration Case
My time with Brian Conry was positive even in the during the stressful times. He and he's team always make me feel positive and my case important. Good communicators, keeped me updated on progress with my case. My tipe of case was not one that it could be easy to get it done and not many attorneys take that kind of cases to get resolved. Brian he never give it up and always been positive for my case. They are many representatives/attorney's out there; but I recomand Brian Conry with all my hearth to anyone needs any kind of help with the immigration law and you'll be happy.

Best Criminal and Imagination attorney in town!
I was in he prosses of depression for having an aggravated felony on my record. I was 16 when my first original crime occurred. i was old enough to be charge as an adult. At the time it didn't seem like ICE would ever be involved. My court appointed lawyer assured me that he got me the best deal when In all reality he was crap. We could have went to trial and gotten better charges. I mean I wasn't innocent but the punishment did not fit the crimes. Anyways I thought I would just do my time and take what ever punishment they through at me. After having been released I was doing fine but ended missing a very important court date which caused a warrant out for my arrest. The judge was simply going to have a talk with me about the importance of my probationary guide lines and release me but it was out of the judges power when ICE got involved. You see I had just turned 18 witch meant that ICE was now was able to go after me. why they didn't before is because they don't tend to go after minors. Little did I know that one mess up would start a much bigger prosses. The only reason I'm letting you know all of this information is because Brian Conry was able to go back to where my previous lawyer messed up and get me a better deal. This brought my charges down. My old lawyer kept pressuring me to take a plea deal that he gotten for me. He could've gotten me something a lot less severe. Brian was able to accomplish this for me. After lowering my changes Brian petitioned the immigration Judge for my release. Which happened pretty quickly. Brian is a outstanding lawyer. Me and my Family are grateful to have found him. Worth every penny.

*highly recommend him.
My family and i were looking for an attorney to help us apply for our residency card and we hired Brian Patrick Conry to help us apply. We were unsure of the process but we put our trust in Brian and he delivered. My family and I are currently permanent residents because of Brian's hard work and dedication to our case. We are more than happy with his services, he puts in time and work. He is very experienced and knows what he's doing, always answered our questions and kept us in the loop. He put our minds at ease when we had our doubts, he insured us that everything was going to go well, though it wasn't easy for us or him he kept his word. We don't regret hiring Brian and will most definitely hire him again when we apply for our citizenship.

Free at last
I was accused of a crime I did not commit and was sentenced to 14 plus years. My relatives and very closed friends contacted Brian Conry. after I was sentenced Brian picked up my case. Brian Conry worked on my case immediately and found out with concrete evidence that the people who accused me did this to get u-visas to be able to stay in this country I sincerely recommend Brian Conry, his crew are very aggressive when it comes to finding overlooked evidence. I am back to my family after spending 6 years in prison with a clean record.

Immigration case
Brian is passionate at what he does and he fights for you. He spent a lot of time on our case. I know he spent more time on the case than what we could pay him. He put in a lot of his own time. Like I said he was passionate and determined to win our case. It was much appreciated. I recommend Brian Conry.

Excellent criminal and immigration lawyer
Brian Conry represented me on my criminal Post-Conviction Relief (PCR) Case and immigration case. He did an excellent job handling both cases. Statistic says that only 5% of appeals and Post-Conviction Relief Cases are successful, but Mr. Conry was able to win my PCR case, and my criminal felony convictions were dismissed with prejudice. Brian was also able to help me get my citizenship regardless of felony criminal convictions. I would highly recommend Mr. Conry as an excellent attorney.

I recommend this law firm 100%
Brian P Conry was hired by my family to fight for my brother’s legal status. My brother was detained in Texas where the immigration judges are much tougher (heartless) so our priority was for his case to be transferred to Oregon as well as for our brother to be released while we fought his case to obtain his permanent legal status. Mr. Conry and his team worked very hard to not only have the case transferred to Oregon, have our brother released in the US while we fought the case but best of all WIN the case. Because of the professionalism, knowledge and many more qualities Mr. Conry and his team won our brother’s case. Our brother is now a legal permanent resident of the United States of America and can now continue to be the positive role model for this Country and be with our family without fear. The law office of Brian P Conry provided our family with guidance every step of the way. Mr. Conry was always professional, understanding, straight up, honest & respectful. His immigration law experience was evident since the beginning. Hiring Brian P Conry was the best decision our family could have done. We will always be thankful and recommend his services without a doubt.

Free again after five years
I hired Brian along with other friends to defend a man wrongly imprisoned for five years in a complex criminal case where the accusers were trying to avoid deportation by claiming child abuse. The first trial ended with a hung jury, the second trial resulted in conviction. Both of these were handled by public defenders with juries. We hired Brian to appeal the conviction which was successful. The third trial in April 2016, without a jury, was skillfully researched and professionally argued over a six day period resulting in the judge swiftly ruling acquittal on all counts. Our investment in Brian proved that truth and justice wins out in the end. Brian's bilingual staff were also important factors in this process. Brian's deep knowledge of immigration law and his thorough investigation of the charges dating back almost 20 years prove that you must secure competent legal help to defend against such claims.

Horrible attorney
Strongly recommend not to hire him! He took a very large amount of my money (around $30000)and still lost my case. Later when i hired a new attorney I found out that he made lots of mistakes, and the biggest one was that i was not deportable with the charges i had, And he still lost my case. I mean how bad of a lawyer do you have to be to lose something that cant be lost? Anyway after i hired a new attorney for appeal i won my case in less than 6 month!!!
