Removal, or deportation proceedings, begin when the U.S. government serves a Notice to Appear on an individual. It is very important to hire an experienced and competent attorney when in removal proceedings. Deportation defense is a large part of our practice. Mr. Karpouzis spends much of his time in courtrooms across the United States fighting for immigrant rights in these proceedings. Available relief includes 42(b) Cancellation of Removal, 42(a) Cancellation of Removal, Asylum, Withholding of Removal and Relief under the Convention against Torture.
