Immigration:  Removal & Deportation 


Victory in Alien Smuggling Case

On January 2, 2009, a 67-year-old Jamaican native (“Jane”)* a Jamaican native, citizen of Canada, and lawful permanent resident of the United States attempted to cross the US/Canada border at the Detroit Ambassador Bridge with two undocumented Canadian nationals (“Paul” and “Sally”).  The border patrol seized Jane, and after a lengthy interrogation, charged her with alien smuggling. Specifically, the government alleged that on August 13, 2010, Jane “knowingly encouraged, induced, assisted, abetted, or aided Paul and Sally enter or try to enter the United States in violation of the Immigration and Nationality Act (“INA”) Sec. 212. [8 U.S.C. 1182](a)(6)(E).  In June of 2011, the court commenced removal proceedings against Jane after she admitted to the first four claims that were filed against her. 

Appellate Success

Litigation Success

Successful Juvenile Defense

Following a two-day jury trial, we successfully defended a Taylor youth charged with two counts of aggravated assault whom police said used a pencil to stab his opponent during a youth football game.

nationwide scam aimed at black churches.  Read the Detroit FreePress Article.
