Naturalization and expungement granted for crime for Client who can now travel to Canada without any problems.
Green card application granted for client who is married to a US citizen but had a deportation order from 1995. Client had two motions to reopen denied by the Immigration Court and his appeal was denied by the BIA. However, once at the 9th Circuit Court of Appeal, the Department of Homeland Security agreed remand and terminate his case so that he could apply for adjustment of status with USCIS. 20 years later, he is now a lawful permanent resident of the United States.

Naturalization granted after application had been pending for well over a year for Client who had repeated false claims to U.S. citizenship, including voting in federal and state elections. Client did not fall under the USC false claim exceptions but his application was granted on discretionary grounds.
Removal proceedings terminated by Immigration Judge. Client is an LPR and has 3 convictions; 2 battery convictions and 1 assault conviction. DHS charged him with removability as an alien convicted of 2 crimes involving moral turpitude and an alien convicted of a crime of domestic violence. We were able to bond client out and then get proceedings terminated because DHS could not establish removability by clear and convincing evidence; battery is not categorically a CIMT or a COV. While the new 9th Circuit case overruling Silva-Trevino helped, proceedings would have terminated regardless because DHS tried to bypass the second step in Silva-Trevino and did not submit the required docs.
