P. vs. Valle J & M

Practice Area: Landlord / Tenant
Date: February 13, 2015
Outcome: Dismissal

Clients came to our office after I had already left. My assistant called me and due to the urgency of the matter I turned around and drove back to the office. Clients had been served with a Summons because their landlord was trying to evict them. Landlord had been receiving rent and clients had receipts. Landlord wanted them out right away because she wanted to make upgrades to the property. After informing client of his rights, we prepared and filed (next day) his Answer to the Eviction complaint. Two days later we received a fax from opposing counsel that they were going to dismiss the case. Clients were grateful that they were able to remain in their home that they had been paying rent for.

J vs. Zavala

Practice Area: Family
Date: April 3, 2015
Outcome: Protective Order – Granted

She began receiving multiple threats from her husband’s family members that she was going to get arrested for abandoning her husband. We immediately filed a Domestic Violence Restraining Order to protect her and her daughter. Turns out, as expected, that the threats from the husband’s family members were false and our client is now lives safe protected by with her Restraining Order.

EOIR – W. Sanabria

Practice Area: Immigration
Outcome: Legal Permanent Resident

Client came to us at risk of deportation and we got him Legal Permanent Residence. Client was placed on ISAP (Intensive Supervision Appearance Program) and had to wear an ankle bracelet. He was doomed to be deported back to El Salvador. Prior attorneys had filed a Motion to Reopen his deportation case; but to no avail. An appeal was filed with the BIA (Bureau of Immigration Affairs) who also denied his Motion. He wanted to hire us to represent him at the 9th Circuit. After reviewing his file, we knew he didn’t stand a chance at the 9th Circuit. We quickly submitted a well prepared written request to the government attorney for a Joint Motion to Reopen. At the same time, a Motion to Stay Deportation was granted pending the government’s decision to join in the motion to reopen. The government agreed and Joint Motion to Reopen the Case and Terminate Deportation was granted by the Immigration Court. With the help of a Petition by his United States Citizen spouse, we were able to not only prevent his deportation; but get him a Legal Permanent Residence.
