There must be a basis for your application - usually an immigrant visa based on a family relationship or employment. You did not mention the reason for the denial or the basis upon which you were applying for adjustment. You may need the help of an attorney.
The answer provided here is general in nature and does not take into account other factors that may need to be reviewed for a more precise answer. You should consult with an immigration attorney before taking any action. The answer here is not intended to create an attorney-client relationship.
