Certified Specialist Immigration and Nationality Law the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization


A skilled and experienced deportation lawyer is essential for your fight to legally remain in the United States. Today’s immigration climate is increasingly complex and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is initiating removal proceedings at an increased rate and for lighter infractions. A leading deportation lawyer in Los Angeles, Henry A. Posada is dedicated to aggressively defending clients who are faced with removal proceedings.

The DHS may initiate such proceedings for many reasons, ranging from visa overstay to illegal entry, immigration fraud, criminal history, and more. Hiring a reputable deportation lawyer with years of experience gives defendants the greatest chance to remain in the United States regardless of the grounds for which proceedings have been called. If you are trapped in a legal battle against deportation or removal, you deserve representation from an attorney with truly superior experience and expertise in this area of immigration law.

Deportation and Removal

There’s no way around it, deportation and removal proceedings are stressful and intimidating with family relationships and assets often on the line. Recognizing this, Mr. Posada will do everything in his power to make this period run as smoothly as possible while championing your defense. Here is how we can help:

Deportation and removal proceedings occur in two phases:

  1. A determination of whether the person is legally removable from the United States, usually by reviewing the individual’s immigration status and relevant history in the United States.
  2. Charges that are not successfully contested result in a second phase that determines if the client is eligible to remain in the US through an application for discretionary relief.

Mr. Posada will prepare a defense for both phases of the proceedings. The second contains many avenues for potential relief, including dangers or misfortunes clients may be subject to if forced to return to their country of origin. These avenues are very difficult to take full advantage of without the assistance of an attorney who fully understands this complex and evolving area of immigration law.

Our firm also handles appeals and motions to reopen cases for clients who have already received a final order for deportation or removal. Additionally, we are experts in securing a release for those who have been detained by the DHS. This may be done via bond proceedings conducted by either the Immigration Court or Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Upon successful release from detention, our firm can then aid in removal proceedings and if applicable, move for post-conviction relief which in some cases can render older convictions irrelevant to future proceedings.
