CITIZENSHIP GRANTED Matter of S.E. (2022)
S.E. is a native and citizen of Mexico who was admitted for lawful permanent residence in the United States. He was concerned that a previous domestic violence arrest would result in the denial of his naturalization application. Alex reviewed the records provided by S.E. and assured him that, based on the facts of his case, he should not have any issues in naturalizing. Accordingly, Alex prepared a complete filing that was sufficient to satisfy U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) that S.E. was a person of good moral character and otherwise established all of the elements for naturalization set out in section 316(a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act. S.E. is now a citizen of the United States.
CITIZENSHIP GRANTED Matter of L.C. (2022)
L.C. is a native and citizen of Vietnam who was admitted for lawful permanent residence in the United States on the basis of her marriage to a United States citizen. Having divorced shortly after obtaining residence, L.C. was concerned the agency would make an issue out of this when she applied for naturalization. Alex examined the case and assured L.C. that she would have nothing to be concerned of. He subsequently prepared a complete filing that was sufficient to satisfy U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) that L.C. was eligible to naturalize. L.C. is now a citizen of the United States.

A.R. is now a citizen of the United States.
BOND GRANTED Matter of H.C. (2022)
H.C. is a native and citizen of Mexico who was admitted for lawful permanent residence in the United States. He was concerned that a previous domestic violence conviction out of Arizona would not only make him ineligible for naturalization but even lead to his deportation. Alex reviewed the records provided by H.C. and assured him that, based on the facts of his case, he was not deportable under section 237 of the Immigration and Nationality Act and that he was, in fact, eligible for naturalization under section 316(a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act. Accordingly, Alex prepared a complete filing that was sufficient to satisfy U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) that H.C. was eligible to naturalize. H.C. is now a citizen of the United States.
WHAT I ADMIRE SO MUCH ABOUT ALEX IS HIS HONESTY
“I am originally from China, and I have been a lawful permanent resident of the United States for many years now. I was initially denied citizenship for a very complicated legal reason. Alex has helped make sense of all this to me. He first helped me through the administrative appeal, and when that was not successful, he filed a lawsuit in federal court. What I admire so much about Alex is his honesty through all of this. He explained from the outset that this is going to be an uphill battle. He predicted the denial of the administrative appeal and said that the only place we had a chance of gaining ground is in a federal court. Another thing I really like about Alex is that he shares all of his work product with me. This is why I am able to understand everything that is going on. Everything he files with the court, he shares with me. If I don’t understand something, he explains it well to me. I really feel like a have a champion on my side with Alex as my attorney.” – Client
