What is Appeals?

Appeals means that you have a case or motion that lost in immigration court and want to have a higher court review the decision. The reason for your appeal may be because the immigration judge incorrectly applied the law, there is a procedural issue, or your attorney was incompetent.

Client Reviews
"My experience with Lavy Law was extremely positive. After finding them through a Google search and reaching out to them, Kara Lavy responded soon after, assessed my case and she immediately came up with a collaborative strategy. Ms. Lavy was in close contact while preparing to present our case. The motions she filed on my behalf couldn't have been more thorough while leveraging her relationships with local DA and justice contacts to ensure a smooth process in the courtroom. All motions were granted in my favor, and I offer the highest recommendation to anyone looking for professional, responsive, dedicated and experienced attorney services." Javier M. (San Mateo, CA)
