Deportation Defense

Deportation/removal is a process used by the US government to remove individuals form the United States. Our attorneys are familiar with this process and are passionate advocates for immigrant rights.

Immigration Appeals

We represent immigrants and organizations before a variety of immigration appellate forums including the Board of Immigration Appeals (“BIA”) as well as the USCIS Administrative Appeals Office (“AAO”).

Citizenship & Naturalization

Naturalization is an extremely important process that requires the attention of an experienced citizenship and immigration attorney.

Criminal Convictions & Immigration

If you are a resident alien, or are undocumented or overstayed your visa, and have been arrested on a criminal charge, you need help in two legal areas — representation for the criminal charge, and the advice of an experienced immigration attorney.

Search & Seizure Issues

The laws regarding searches and seizures of property by police are numerous and change often.  Many arrests throughout Michigan are the result of illegal searches and seizures that violate the U.S. Constitution. We understand the ever-changing laws and can assist in closely evaluating your encounter with the police.


Under U.S. law, asylum may be granted to foreigners who can establish a well-founded fear of persecution if they were returned to their home countries.  Our experience gives us the ability to properly prepare, file, and present an asylum case, which can greatly increase your chances of obtaining asylum in the U.S.

Diversity Lottery

Almost anyone who has completed the equivalent of a U.S. high school education, or has worked for at least two years within the last five in a qualifying occupation, is eligible to enter the Department of State’s annual visa lottery program, but as a winner you must act quickly to be among the first to qualify. We can help.

Family Law

One of the most common ways to immigrate to the United States is through a family member. We have considerable experience helping immigration clients pursue their dreams. We know what to look for in evaluating your situation, and can provide step-by-step guidance for you and your loved ones.


  • One Call, That's All.

    I needed help with a case and it took one phone call to Mani. He is very knowledgeable and reliable when handling my case. I was not sure how to the case would go but Mani relieved me by being right there every step of the way! My charges got dismissed, ONE CALL THAT'S ALL!

  • Not Guilty!

    Mani is a great attorney! He was always well prepared and attentive to all my needs and calls. He explained the whole process to me in a very clear and simply way. He is truly the "Peoples Lawyer"!

    I attempted to handle a simple misdemeanor myself, however, the prosecutor would not take me seriously and told me I had to plead guilty to the charge. I asked for a trial and called Mani immediately after leaving the courthouse. After meeting with Mani, my worries went away. The day of the trial, Mani got the charge dropped.
