Removal Defense


ILG offers services in nearly all areas of US immigration law. While we specialize in  business and family immigration, ILG also offers removal (deportation) defense representation at US Immigration Courts and the Board of Immigration Appeals, as well as federal court litigation at the US District Courts and US Courts of Appeals.

If the DHS believes that you should be removed or deported from the United States, or an individual is found "inadmissible" to the United States, the DHS will issue a piece of notice called a "Notice to Appear" or "NTA" which initiates court proceedings to determine if an individual is removable/deportable or inadmissible from the United States. An Immigration Judge presides over these court proceedings which are held at US Immigration Courts across the country. These are formal court hearings and should be taken very seriously as your immigration record may be permanently affected and you can be physically deported from the United States. Only an Immigration Judge can determine if you are removable/deportable or inadmissible and whether you have relief from removal.


If the Immigration Judge denies relief, you may appeal to the Board of Immigration Appeals which has jurisdiction over decisions made by Immigration Judges.

We provide representation in the following areas:

  • Asylum

  • Withholding of removal

  • Voluntary departure

  • Granting an application for lawful permanent residence

  • Cancellation of removal

  • Waivers

  • Criminal immigration matters

  • Motions to Reopen

A notice to appear is a serious matter.  The US government is beginning proceedings to remove you from the United States.  Please contact us to find out how our immigration lawyers can help.
