To make your immigration dreams a reality.
Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Requests
If you or your family member has ever had any kind of physical contact with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection or Immigration and Customs Enforcement, filed any documents with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service or the Department of State, or been in removal proceedings with the Executive of Immigration Review (immigration court), the U.S. government may have information about you. Since the 1940's the United States has identified non-citizens by assigning them "A-numbers" (or alien numbers) even if they are not aware of it.
In addition various U.S. agencies keep detailed records and information of every interaction individuals may have with them. Under the Freedom of Information Act, every individual has a right to request that government agencies provide a copy of the information they have collected about one's self (with some rules and exceptions). This information is very important because immigration attorneys require accurate and detailed information in order to properly analyze your case.
Ishola Law Group has over 20 years of experience helping clients deal with the immigration consequences of criminal charges and convictions. We specialize in this area of law that is colloquially known as “crimmigration.” If you or a loved one has been detained and would like to assistance in fighting your case, please give us a call. (801) 886-0500
Ishola represents both U.S. citizens and non-citizens alike. However all non-U.S. citizens should know that they are at significantly greater risk of being being placed in deportation proceedings if they are convicted of certain crimes. This applies to convictions that are many years old. Immigration officials may preform a check on you every time you renew your lawful permanent resident card (or “green card”) or when you return home after traveling abroad.
If you are a non-citizen currently charged with a crime in either state or federal court, we highly recommend you seek the advice of an immigration attorney before you consider any plea option or decide to exercise your right to a trial.
Representation in District and Justice Courts
If you are a non-citizen who has been arrested and detained by ICE, you may be eligible for an immigration bond. This is different and separate from bonds related to state or federal criminal cases. ICE or an immigration judge may grant you the privilege of a bond if they believe you do not pose a significant flight-risk. The difficulty of obtaining an immigration bond will vary from case to case.
Deportation Defense ~ Immigration Bonds
Anyone in the United States who is not a citizen can potentially be deported, even lawful permanent residents. ICE has the authority to detain you if they have sufficient reason to believe that you are deportable. However just because you are deportable does not necessarily mean that you will be deported. If you are placed into removal proceedings before the Executive Office of Immigration review you will have the right to be represented by an attorney of your choosing, but the government will not provide one for you.
