Key Practice Areas

Deportation Defense: The federal government deports thousands of people each year. Many of these individuals had legal alternatives to deportation that were not properly explored because they didn’t have a qualified immigration attorney on their side. Don’t let this happen to you or your loved one! Even if your loved one is already in ICE custody we can help fight to stop the deportation and build the strongest possible defense against the underlying immigration-related charge.

Cancellation of Removal for Lawful Permanent Residents: Have you received a Notice to Appear in Immigration Court? The best thing you can do to protect your future in America is contact an immigration attorney. At The Law Offices of Patrick S. Aguirre, we know the best strategies for securing a cancellation of removal for lawful permanent residents.

Cancellation of Removal for Non-Permanent Residents: Even if you do not have permanent resident status, it may still be possible to secure a cancellation of removal. As your immigration attorney, we can help you understand your rights under the law and handle all the legal steps required to exercise these rights.

Political Asylum: Are you hoping to immigrate to the US in order to escape persecution in your home country? This is a highly specialized immigration process and you will need a knowledgeable immigration attorney on your side. At The Law Offices of Patrick S. Aguirre, we can assist you with every phase of the process, from understanding if you qualify to seek political asylum to preparing you for your asylum interview to representing you in court before the immigration judge.

Detention Bond Hearings: Being sent to an immigration detention center is an extremely stressful and frightening experience. The good news is, with help from an immigration attorney, you have an excellent chance of successfully petitioning for a bond hearing. At The Law Offices of Patrick S. Aguirre, we understand what evidence the judge needs to see in order to grant bond and allow you to be released from detention.

Release from Detention: As a non-US citizen, it may feel like you and your loved ones are at the mercy of ICE. While it is true that any non-citizen can be arrested and detained by ICE with the proper warrant, it is also true that all detainees have the right to request a bond hearing. As your immigration attorney, we can help with this process, giving you the best possible chance of not only being granted a bond hearing, but also winning that hearing so that you can be released from detention.

Adjustment of Status: Applying for permanent resident status in the US can be a confusing and stressful experience. After all, you may be in considerable suspense as to whether your application will be approved. The adjustment of status process allows legally admitted foreign nationals to stay in the US while their applications are being considered, which helps relieve some of the pressure and uncertainty. For best results, you will definitely want a skilled immigration attorney like The Law Offices of Patrick S. Aguirre handling your adjustment of status application.

Temporary Visas: Are you interested in visiting, studying in, or working in the US? You will need a temporary visa. At The Law Offices of Patrick S. Aguirre, we have a detailed understanding of the numerous different types of temporary visas that apply to different situations. We can help you select the best type of visa for your situation and make sure your application is filled out correctly and completely.

Arizona DREAM Act & DACA: The Arizona DREAM Act and DACA provide important immigration protections for individuals who immigrated to the US as children and have since met certain qualifications. The best way to understand your eligibility for the Arizona DREAM Act or DACA is to consult a skilled immigration attorney from The Law Offices of Patrick S. Aguirre. If you are eligible, we will guide you through the entire process and work hard to secure the protection against deportation you deserve under these laws.

U Visas (Victim Visas): By cooperating with law enforcement, immigrants who have been the victims of certain crimes may earn the ability to qualify for a U visa or victim visa. Naturally, you will not want to approach the police, DEA, district attorney, or other government entity about this possibility on your own. Instead, you will want an immigration attorney helping you. As your attorney, we can approach the relevant agencies for you and secure the appropriate paperwork regarding your usefulness to the investigation and your eligibility for a U visa.

Green Cards: For an immigrant seeking a green card, the goal is simple: legal permanent resident status including permission to work in the US. However, the means of reaching that goal can be very complicated. That’s why it is best to enlist the aid of a qualified immigration attorney. At The Law Offices of Patrick S. Aguirre, we understand the rules and requirements for green cards in detail and we will do everything in our power to help you secure your green card status.
