V.A.V., a native and citizen of the Mexico who had been a lawful permanent resident of the United States for more than three decades, sought the aid of Alex to file an Application for Naturalization (“Form N-400”). He was concerned, however, because he had sustained multiple convictions for driving under the influence in various jurisdictions as well as a battery conviction in violation of Nevada law. Alex prepared the Form N-400 filing, taking special efforts to explain in a memorandum of law why V.A.V.’s convictions did not preclude him from establishing good moral character. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) agreed, approved V.A.V. for naturalization, and he has been sworn in as a United States citizen.

M.S., a native and citizen of Japan who had been admitted as a lawful permanent resident of the United States, sought the aid of Alex to file an Application for Naturalization (“Form N-400”).

BOND GRANTED Matter of P.J.R. (2020)
P.J.R. is a native and citizen of Guatemala who had been arrested for battery on a protected person in violation of Nevada law. After he was released on his own recognizance in the pending criminal case, he was transferred to immigration custody where the Department of Homeland Security refused to release P.J.R. on a bond. Alex filed a motion seeking a custody redetermination hearing with the Las Vegas Immigration Court on his behalf, arguing that P.J.R. did not pose a danger to the community or a risk of flight. Satisfied with the evidence presented, the presiding immigration judge set a bond. P.J.R. was released from immigration custody after posting this bond.


“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
