Deportation Defense

Whether you have a hearing before the Immigration Court in Seattle or want to help a loved one who is in jail with an ICE hold or being detained at the North West Detention Center in Tacoma, you should consider hiring an experienced immigration attorney. At S&O we can help our clients and their loved ones get out of detention, get back to work, and prepare a valid defense for Immigration Court proceedings.

Finding Freedom

In many cases, the first step when representing someone during their immigration proceedings is getting them out of ICE custody and back with their family. Whether you are in jail with an ICE hold or detained at the Immigration Detention Center in Tacoma, our attorneys and staff can help you get out as quickly as possible. We accomplish this by filing formal legal requests with ICE and attending bond hearings before the Immigration Judge.

Back to Work

We know that once you’ve been released from detention, you will want and need to get back to work as soon as possible. We can help. If you’re among our many clients that qualify for a work permit, we can help you to apply for one. A work permit will also allow you to get a social security card. With this powerful combination, you may actually find yourself with the best job you’ve ever had.

Preparing Your Case

The majority of people qualify for some defense to deportation. Common relevant defenses include: Adjustment of Status, Cancellation of Removal, asylum, Suspension of Deportation, Temporary Protect Status (also known as “TPS”), and Voluntary Departure. An important part of what we do is to help you identify which defenses can work best and make the most sense for your individual situation. After that, we complete and file the correct forms and help you to collect the necessary evidence for your hearing. Our goal as immigration attorneys is to make the process go as smoothly as possible without causing you any undue stress or concern.

Your Day in Court

We know that going to an immigration court can be scary and that you have a lot at stake. We also know from experience that having a S&O immigration attorney and paralegal on your side can make the process a lot less intimidating. We can explain the process and tell you exactly what to expect during your hearings, as well as accompany you to each and every court appearance. In fact, we will do most of the talking with the immigration judge, so you won’t need to worry about anything. We’ll also be there to answer any questions you have and guide you every step of the way. Make the call to S&O today, and get us on your side.
