We are looking for an attorney who has experience handling immigration matters. We are an immigration firm that wins cases other attorneys won’t take. We are dedicated to our mantra of “never give up.” We’re looking for an attorney who can hit the ground running to give our clients outstanding representation. The right person will have compassion, the ability to build relationships with our clients, and know their way around the courtroom and USCIS.
Please read entire ad prior to submitting your resume. Please do not apply using this online system; we won’t see it. Instructions to apply are at the end of the job posting.
We need an attorney who can contribute to developing the strategy of a case and who knows where to find the code, cases, and rules of procedure to back up that case strategy.
You must have experience handling affirmative asylum, removal defense (asylum, cancellation of removal, etc.), motions to reopen, and family-based petitions. You will be expected to take responsibility for a client's case along the rest of the legal team – conduct client meetings and recommend strategies; oversee communication with all parties and the government; ensure accurate and timely filings; attend hearings; and delegate work to paralegals and legal assistants and monitor their work.
You also need to know how to navigate Immigration Court and how to project confidence and competence when dealing with clients and people on behalf of our clients.
This is not a position where you can learn on the job. If you do not have 3+ years of experience in Immigration Court and USCIS, please do not apply.
If you see a case file as an opportunity to help someone build a new life, you’ll like the way we think.
Skills and experience are important and valued, but your personality, character, intelligence, and integrity are also extremely important considerations.
If we can’t count on you to show up in court on time, don’t apply.
Low-maintenance applicants with a great sense of humor and an unshakable sense of self-confidence will love our firm.
You’re ready to roll up your sleeves to get our client’s matters resolved; the occasional need to scan your own documents or put more paper in the copier is never “beneath you.”
Salary Salary is commensurate with skill and experience and is negotiable. The compensation package includes base salary plus bonus compensation for production and performance. We also pay for continuing legal education, bar dues, and some approved voluntary bar memberships.

forward to reviewing your resume. Please follow these instructions.
