Deportation Defense

Defense against Deportation and Removal (Litigation).
In today’s immigration climate of heightened enforcement and security, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) frequently initiates removal proceedings against many foreign nationals for numerous reasons ranging from technical violations of the immigration laws, such as illegal entries and visa overstays, to more serious grounds such as immigration fraud, alien smuggling, and criminal history grounds. Michael G. Murray handled hundreds of criminal cases while working as an attorney for the Miami-Dade Public Defender’s Office. Thus, we not only offer experienced litigation skills, but also a unique perspective for criminal related immigration charges. It is this combined experience that contributes to our firm’s success in getting proceedings terminated at the earliest stage of representation. If necessary, our firm is prepared to vigorously defend against removal by filing any and all relevant applications for relief.

Appeals and Motions to Reopen.
Our firm handles appeals to the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) and to federal circuit courts of appeals, as well as motions to reopen for people who have already received a final order of deportation or removal.

Detention and Bond Hearings.
Have you or a family member been detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement or placed on an ICE hold? Our legal team is well versed in the conditions you must meet in order to be released on a bond, and will vigorously argue that INA 236(c) mandatory detention for crimes involving moral turpitude or aggravated felonies do not apply to your case.

Criminal Defense.
A criminal arrest often carries the threat of deportation. Our firm draws on prior experience handling misdemeanors, juvenile offenses, and felonies so that you don’t have to seek separate counsel for pending cases affecting your immigration status.

Jun 18, 2015 /  “How my internship taught me the importance of hiring an attorney for immigration services,” by guest writer: Samantha Jean Francois
The article below was written by Samantha Jean Francois, a promising law student at St. Thomas University and summer intern at Michael G. Murray, P.A.. Being a law student is said to have many advantages. One is that we are said to understand legal terms better than the average person without any legal experience.  Every law student has gotten a random phone call from a friend or family member looking for legal advice. The biggest misconception about law is that ...
