Federal Litigation

The attorneys at HaleyNelson & Heilbrun, LLP are seasoned appellate advocates who have successfully represented clients in cases before the Administrative Appeals Office, the Board of Immigration Appeals, U.S. District Courts, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and Sixth Circuits.  Both partners have litigated important immigration cases resulting in positive published opinions and have obtained successful outcomes for clients who may have been initially denied immigration relief. Because of this, we often receive referrals from other attorneys to take on cases at the appellate level. 

In addition to direct appeals, we also represent clients in Motions to Reopen and Motions to Reconsider before the Immigration Judge (IJ) and the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA), and in District Court actions where there is significant delay by immigration in making a decision on an application.

When your case is on appeal, or requires a motion to reopen or district court action, you have likely already been on a lengthy, complicated journey. We appreciate how essential it is to ensure that the appeal or motion to reopen is thorough, skillful, and creative.  You need to know that you are in capable hands. It is our goal to give you our honest opinion about your case at the onset based on our experience, and to use our expertise to prepare the strongest appeal or motion based on the most up-to-date research of applicable laws that pertain to the unique facts of your case.
