Fighting Deportation Actions in Missouri
Deportation can have an immediate, traumatic impact on immigrants and their families. If you are detained, you will not be able to support your family financially. If you are deported, you will be taken away from them completely. The threat of deportation is scary, and can be life altering. Even if you have a green card, one mistake can place you in deportation proceedings, and can lead to detention by the Immigration Service.
While illegal immigrants and legal residents alike do have options, the right defense can make all the difference in your case.
At Cofman & Bolourtchi, LLC, we are nationally recognized and known throughout the St. Louis area for our zealous representation in difficult cases. Our lawyers are experts in deportation defense, and are highly successful in getting relief for our clients.
One way to fight deportation is to obtain a waiver. If you are facing removal or immigration authorities have threatened to bar you from entering the U.S., we will work to obtain the waiver you need:
Removability waivers let us ask the judge to allow you remain in the U.S. despite the removable violation that you committed.
Waivers of inadmissibility apply to our clients who have been denied entry to the U.S. for various reasons. We can ask an immigration judge to ignore the factors that were cited for refusing you legal immigrant status.
Every client comes to us with a unique situation. We have the experience to defend you, and to help you avoid deportation or removal.

Immigrant criminal defense
Defending Non-Citizens in St. Louis Criminal Defense
Criminal charges can have serious consequences for anyone. But for immigrants, a conviction can be devastating and possibly lead to deportation or removal. Many misdemeanor and felony arrests and convictions result in deportation, no matter how many years you have lawfully resided in the United States.
If you are a foreign national or illegal immigrant, an experienced criminal defense can make the difference for your future. Do not let your rights go unprotected.
Criminal defense attorneys do not always know the immigration consequences of criminal convictions. We have extensive experience fighting convictions with motions to reopen, and advising clients and even other attorneys on these difficult and confusing issues. We know how to protect your rights in Missouri state and federal criminal courts as well as at immigration hearings.
Mr. Bolourtchi has written articles and is a frequent speaker on the Immigration Consequences of Criminal Convictions, and is regarded as an expert in this area by his peers. When an immigrant is facing criminal charges, experience does matter.
