Our Renewed Commitment in the Face of the Recent Immigration Raids

The raids in Los Angeles and other major cities across the United States which began on February 10, 2017 as well as the malformed executive order which was recently frozen in the Court of Appeals have placed our offices and our staff on high alert. We stand ready to represent and advocate for any persons, or family members of any persons who may be harmed in the coming days, weeks, and months of the current enforcement environment.

Berke Law Offices, Inc., has been representing immigrants since 1990 with passion and intelligence. As proud members of the American Immigration Lawyer's Association we stand with our brethren in the Immigration Bar in fighting any efforts of the present administration to exceed its legal and constitutional authority to enforce the current law and to fight passionately against those aspects of the law which are unjust and unfair to our immigrant communities.

It is more important than ever that all aliens, residents, and even citizen KNOW and EXERCISE their constitutional rights (see an excellent primer published by the ACLU here.)

Now, more than ever, it is important to consult with an experienced immigration attorney who can help you to prepare for what may come. We stand at the ready to examine your unique circumstances and work with you toward a strategy for withstanding these trying times. If our offices are not convenient to you, there are many excellent immigration attorneys to be found at AILA.org.

Finally, as it has always been, make sure you are consulting with a licensed attorney and not an immigration consultant or notario. Only licensed attorneys are permitted to give you legal advice.
