Protecting Your American Life
An Immigration Court deportation case (“removal proceedings”) creates fear of forced separation from home, work and family. Attorney Lynn S. Olinger relieves as much of this stress as possible by informing and protecting clients. We thoroughly explore whether and how to fight the charges, and if there were immigration violations, whether and how a client may remain in or return to the U.S. We discuss at length what will happen at each hearing. Through years of experience, clients and their families have expressed comfort and relief simply from knowing in advance what to expect.
