Removal Defense

The focus of the Removal Defense Team is to represent unaccompanied minors, children and adults in removal proceedings who are pursing humanitarian forms of relief, including Asylum, special immigrant juvenile status, and relief for victims of crimes under the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protections Act. We represent Non-Detained, Detained, and Bond Hearings clients.
