The immigration attorneys at Hill & Piibe engage in virtually all areas of immigration law practice. Specific information is available in select areas listed below. Please contact us to learn if we handle a particular area you are concerned with.
Green Cards & Citizenship – Our U.S. visa attorneys handle all types of applications for permanent residency (family, employment, etc.) and naturalization/citizenship. We do not simply fill out forms; we review your particular circumstances and present detailed, comprehensive packages that easily guide an adjudicator through your qualifications and issues, greatly speeding up the process.
Temporary Visas (Nonimmigrant Visas) The immigration law firm can help you determine which type of visa is best-suited to you, and then prepare a thorough application and guide you through the process, whether you apply from inside the United States or from outside its borders. Employers can also gain information about getting proper work documents for employees.
ICE Detention & Bonds (Resources on President Trump’s New Laws) – We commonly obtain last-minute stays of deportation/removal for clients detained by ICE, and assist them with obtaining bond orders for release from custody.
Immigration Court/Deportation/Removal – On average, the law firm litigates before an Immigration Judge every day, where we question the government’s interpretation of harsh new immigration laws, and whether these laws violate our clients’ rights.
Criminal/Immigration Issues – This complex area of law is handled every day in our firm. There are special rules in immigration law for those with a criminal record, and we stay current on the forefront of this area. We can also handle your post-conviction relief (“expungements,” etc.) in California criminal court, ensuring that such relief complies with the narrow restrictions of immigration law.
Waivers – Our firm is highly successful in obtaining waivers for clients, and our staff has great experience in building these cases to a powerful showing.
Appeals & Motions to Reopen – Our litigation department is strongly skilled in the complexities of motions to reopen, both before USCIS and the immigration courts, and has a long track record of successes in appeals before the federal Courts of Appeal, the Board of Immigration Appeals, and the USCIS/Administrative Appeals Office.
Asylum – The firm is intimately familiar with asylum law, as partner Susan Hill has supervised two law school clinics which assist people in seeking asylum relief. We have assisted asylum seekers from all parts of the world, and have obtained many successes.
Work Permits – Also known as “work authorization” or “EADs,” a work permit usually may only be granted in conjunction with a pending application for some other type of relief or benefit, such as asylum, adjustment of status, NACARA, etc.
NACARA – An application for this benefit should not be treated lightly, and Hill & Piibe has assembled numerous successful packages for their clients.
We handle many other areas of immigration law as well. Contact us if you would like further information on your immigration matter.
