Our team at Gardner Law, PLLC is continuously educating ourselves on the current issues our clients face. As part of our ongoing efforts, our firm is attending two conferences on the latest strategies in defending clients in removal proceedings in North Carolina.
On September 9, our entire firm attended a conference at Wake Forest University School of Law in Winston Salem, North Carolina. The American Immigration Lawyers’ Association (AILA) Carolinas Chapter sponsored the event. The forum focused on removal defense specifically in the Charlotte Immigration Court, which covers immigrants living in all of North and South Carolina. Discussion leaders included NC board-certified specialists in immigration law, an immigration law professor, and a former Immigration Judge.
Our team will also be attending Building Community Networks for Women & Children from Central America Seeking Asylum in North Carolina. This seminar will be held on November 11 at the UNC School of Law in Chapel Hill. Panelists will discuss the newest developments at the Charlotte Immigration Court for Central American women and children seeking asylum, and share the best strategies for successfully defending these cases.
Since July 2014, over 3,000 women and children from Central America have had their asylum claims heard in Charlotte. Out of those, only 23 were granted asylum, and all of them had legal representation. None of those women and children that represented themselves won asylum in Charlotte. Therefore, it is vital for those seeking asylum to hire an attorney. Without one there is a 0% chance of success.
These immigration conferences are just two examples of how Gardner Law stays abreast of the ever-changing climate surrounding immigration law. If you are facing deportation or unsure about your immigration status, seeking counsel from an attorney that is knowledgeable and reliable should be your top priority.
