Key to NM’s growth to the forefront of deportation attorneys across the United States is that, while NM has global capabilities, no case is treated as “minor.” We believe in personalized representation, with experienced attorneys who use modern approaches to solve your deportation problem.

If an Immigration Judge in any one of the many Immigration Courts across America finds an individual is not lawfully in the United States, the person is not automatically deported. All people, including immigrant, have rights. The Immigration & Nationality Act allows that alien to assert one or more of several types of “relief from deportation.” The Immigration Law and Deportation Defense Attorneys at Norris McLaughlin are well versed in all potential forms of relief, the elements that must be proven for each form of relief and the evidence necessary to establish each respective element.

“It is important that all proper forms of relief are asserted,” notes Deportation Defense Attorney Raymond Lahoud of Norris McLaughlin, “failure to assert a form of relief or all forms of relief that someone in deportation proceedings may be eligible for at the first hearing will deem that potential relief waived. You need the right attorney from day one.” It is important that one who is in deportation or removal proceedings retain an attorney as soon as the proceedings are commenced, so that all rights are preserved. “The Deportation Defense Team at Norris McLaughlin must be contacted as soon as an alien or someone’s loved one is arrested by Immigration & Customs Enforcement, because Norris’ attorneys will immediately step into action and fight for the alien,” notes Attorney Lahoud, who counsels individuals and families on all types of deportation situations.

If you are not now in removal proceeding and have never been, but are in the United States unlawfully, have been convicted of any type of crime or are facing a conviction, NM’s Deportation Attorneys have counseled many in the very same position. Many immigrants –those in the United States lawfully and those unlawfully—have found comfort in retaining us for any potential immigration issues that may arise in the future and may lead to the commencement of deportation or inadmissibility proceedings.
