Successful appeal

Successful appeal on behalf of an asylum seeker from Egypt

JSSAppeals: Partner David Schlesinger won a complex case for an asylum and cancellation of removal in the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit on behalf of an applicant from Egypt.
Mr. Schlesinger’s client, a native and citizen of Egypt, petitioned for a review of a decision by the Board of Immigration Appeals (“BIA”) denying his motion to reconsider and to reopen removal proceedings.
He argued that a defective Notice to Appear deprived the immigration court of jurisdiction over his removal proceedings. He also advanced two theories for overcoming the procedural bars: 1. an exception to the bars based on changed country conditions and 2. BIA’s abuse of discretion by failing to review evidence.
The Court has found that Mr. Schlesinger’s client has submitted sufficient evidence to warrant the application of equitable tolling and established that he is prima facie eligible for cancellation of removal. The Court granted the petition and remanded the case to the BIA.

EB-1 Visa Win

EB-1 Successfully Obtained!

Attorney Katie Spero successfully represented a self-employed client applying for an EB-1 extraordinary ability as an artist. This case was pending for over one year, during which time the applicant made important achievements in her career and built a growing reputation in the United States for her unique animation and illustration. We are excited to help artists and self-employed entrepreneurs find a pathway to success in the U.S.!


Successful Green Card Issuance

Attorney Katie Spero successfully represented a client who was awarded lawful permanent residence through a complex employment-based application. The position in this case works nationwide and has no fixed work site. A job offer of this type requires special considerations during each stage of the green card filing and can be difficult to explain properly to the Department of Labor and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. The beneficiary has been in the U.S. for 14 years, and this green card issuance is a new phase in her career and her ability to make the U.S. her permanent home.

Great 9th Circuit Result from Jacobs & Schlesinger’s David A. Schlesinger!
