“After a U.S. Senator could not help us get out of our country, someone told our friend in Port Townsend to contact Seifert Law Offices to help. The office immediately started my case. In less than a month the paper work was done and we were out of Guinea by January 2001. Had we not obtained the visas and stayed in Guinea we would not be alive to tell this story. Thank God we are now in the States, united with our daughter, sound and safe and thank God for Seifert Law Offices.”
We represent individuals who challenge the government’s attempts to force them to leave the United States. Our job is to defend our clients in Immigration Court, at the Board of Immigration Appeals and in various Federal Courts. We insist that the government officers, lawyers and immigration judges do justice and uphold the constitutional rights of all of our clients.
We help people in removal proceedings whether in the detention center in Tacoma (the Northwest Detention Center) or in Seattle. Immigrants have limited rights in Immigration Court. For example, they do not get free lawyers. We do our best to defend immigrants by insisting that the judges and prosecutors provide due process at every step. This is especially critical when the government or political groups work against immigrants and refugees.
In Immigration Court, an immigrant might apply for political asylum, withholding of removal or protection under the convention against torture (CAT). Other remedies include cancellation of removal, criminal and other waivers, and even adjustment of status. A case in Immigration Court can take years to resolve, and our office is ready to assist you during the long process.
