Los Angeles Ineffective Counsel Lawyer

What to Do if Your Immigration Attorney Has Made a Serious Mistake

The ineffective assistance of counsel argument is a powerful tool that can be used to prevent deportation. If your attorney has made a serious mistake that resulted in the denial of your immigration petition or the issuance of a removal order, and you have not yet been deported, it may be possible to successfully appeal the denial or removal order.

At Sarian Law Group, APLC, we are strong advocates for people who have been denied effective counsel. When you retain our firm to represent you, we will use all available avenues to prevent your removal or to obtain a reversal of an adverse immigration decision.

Contact Sarian Law Group, APLC, to schedule a consultation with a lawyer.

Act Quickly to Obtain Capable Legal Representation

If your immigration petition has been denied or you have been issued a removal order, you have only 30 days to file an appeal to the Administrative Appeals Unit (AAU). In certain circumstances, it may be possible to successfully appeal beyond the 30-day deadline based on ineffective counsel, but you should not delay.

Regardless of the specific facts of your case, you should act quickly to obtain the advice of an experienced immigration attorney.

Nationwide Lozada Motion Lawyer

In 1988, the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) established the procedural requirements for filing a motion to request a reconsideration of an adverse immigration decision. This is called a Lozada motion, and to succeed, it must satisfy very specific requirements.

Artem M. Sarian can review the circumstances of your case and advise you concerning your legal options. If your case has merit, Mr. Sarian can file a Lozada motion and begin preparing your immigration appeal.

Avagyan v. Holder — A Successful Appeal to the 9th Circuit

Attorney Artem M. Sarian succeeded in a successful appeal to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in a case involving ineffective assistance of counsel. In Avagyan v. Holder 646 F.3d 672 (2011), the court ruled that Mr. Sarian's client had been the victim of ineffective counsel regarding her adjustment of status petition, and that she had not had adequate time to consult with a competent lawyer.
