Motion to Reopen

A motion to reopen an immigration matter is an approach we take to fight certain immigration rulings that have been issued previously. For example, removal orders and USCIS rulings in denial of claims can be considered for a motion to reopen. We are a premier immigration law firm with decades of legal experience, including federal litigation, representing clients in immigration court. We do extensive research and prepare our filings very carefully in order to successfully represent our clients in court and give them their best opportunity to win their motion to reopen cases. Reopening immigration cases comes with risk. Our lawyers and staff are some of the most experienced in the field of immigration litigation and routinely achieve success on behalf of our clients. Read below for many examples of the cases we were honored to work on.
