Hi everyone! Check out our latest article on the Terezakis Law Firm website about our two most recent wins!

"CANCELLATION OF REMOVAL: TWO TRIALS, TWO SECOND CHANCES!

For lawful “permanent” residents, a criminal conviction often means deportation, banishment from this country and permanent separation from their family and friends. Fortunately, the immigration laws provide the opportunity to seek a “second chance” for long term permanent residents with certain convictions..."

The Most Meaningful Award I have Ever Received….

Yesterday, one of my clients stopped by my office and presented me with a framed award she had made for me herself! When I met her, she was being held in detention and faced imminent deportation. First we were able to vacate her in absentia removal order; next we applied for an immigrant visa on her behalf through her U.S. citizen husband; then we had her deportation proceedings closed so we could apply for a provisional, 601(A), waiver of her unlawful presence in the U.S., required before she could become a lawful permanent resident. After showing her husband would suffer the requisite hardship, she was granted the waiver, and then we were able to terminate her deportation proceedings. We prepared her for her consular interview, and then she made the leap of faith and returned to El Salvador where, at the U.S. Embassy, she passed the final stage of the proceedings and was granted status as a lawful permanent resident. She was able to return to this country to live with her husband and children as a permanent resident. After many years of uncertainty and fear, she finally has peace of mind! Yesterday she stopped by our office, and she personally thanked me and the members of our office staff who made this possible for her. She presented me with this framed award she had made for me – words from her heart – the most meaningful award that I have ever received.

Translation:

"Dear George A. Terezakis, I extend these words of gratitude for the excellent work, thanks to God, and to you my esteemed attorney George, who with the vocation, endeavor and the efforts made every day….in three years, you were able to stop the deportation order I had pending …..and you made my dream a reality: to remain with my family in the United States, and to achieve becoming a permanent resident of the United States, on September 14th, 2018. They say miracles can happen, and yes, they do! Without you we would not have succeeded.

My family and I will always be very grateful. May God bless you, your family, and your excellent staff who always treated me with great respect and always gave me the best answers to my concerns.

With great affection:
Elsy and Nelson”

4th of July: It’s More than Just Hamburgers

On July 4th, we celebrate a group of rebels who risked their lives for their dream of a free and democratic form of government: one that would safeguard individual liberties and promote the common good. Let’s never break faith with them. Let’s continue to take pride in the fact that we are a nation that has historically offered refuge to those fleeing persecution and seeking freedom. We must remain vigilant and safeguard our liberty. Let’s keep children out of cages, and remember: “When fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag.”

The Terezakis Law Firm Wins Asylum for Salvadoran Fleeing Persecution by MS-13 & Salvadoran Military

In Spanish, there is an expression: “Entre la espada y la pared,” which means: “Caught between the sword and the wall.” Recently we won a grant of asylum for a young man who witnessed members of the MS-13 gang as they chased down a Salvadoran military officer, moments before he was murdered. The gang members later threatened our client to remain silent....

After mounting public outcry, Trump signs executive order ending his cruel and inhumane policy on separating children from their parents. We need to continue to fight for the fair and humane treatment of immigrants in our country.

FOUR IMMIGRATION CLIENTS RELEASED ON BOND THIS PAST WEEK!

Last week The Terezakis Law Firm obtained release under bond for four of our clients. All four had been picked up by ICE and were being held in detention while their cases were pending at the Varick St. Immigration Court. In a short time, working with our clients’ families, we put together winning bond packages, and convinced the Judges our clients were not a flight risk, or a danger to the community. In one case we expedited a psychological report, and within a week documented the extraordinary hardship our client’s daughter was suffering due to her father’s detention. We know that when someone is detained, their family suffers and they risk losing their job, their home and the life they have built in this country. It is also far more difficult to win a deportation-removal case when your client is detained. Our office worked as a team to make this happen. Now all four of our clients are home with their families.

If you know someone who needs help with a deportation-removal case pending at the Immigration Court at 26 Federal Plaza, or at 201 Varick St., in Manhattan, call The Terezakis Law Firm. Experience makes a difference, and we are committed to keeping our clients’ families together.

“Q. And toddlers?”

“A. And toddlers.”

Sometimes our government goes too far, and the fervor of the zealots leads them to engage in criminal conduct; to violate accepted, bedrock, principles of decency and international law. When Central American families come to our country seeking asylum because they are fleeing persecution, rape and murder at the hands of vicious gangs, such as MS-13, it is unlawful and immoral for our government to separate young children from their parents, and hold them in cells, like criminals. Our government is doing this today, in our names, and it is wrong. Organize; speak out; and commit yourself to prevent this continued, intentional, infliction of severe trauma on innocent, desperate, children.

From The New York Times:
Taking Migrant Children From Parents Is Illegal, U.N. Tells U.S.
The Trump administration treats all undocumented border crossing as a crime, jailing adults and splitting families. The U.N. says that violates the children’s rights.
