Federal Appeals

Has Your USCIS Court Case or Application Been Denied?

When an immigration judge unjustly denies your application for asylum or some other form of relief you are seeking in removal proceedings, you’re suddenly facing deportation.

It’s a frightening experience, but that doesn’t mean it’s over. You have the right to appeal most immigration court decisions. With the trusted guidance of the experienced legal team of Nalbandian Law, you’ll automatically improve your chance of winning your appeal.  We will fight for you until justice triumphs in your immigration case.

Depending on your type of case, expert immigration lawyer Sassoun A. Nalbandian will present your appeal in one of these legal venues:

  • Administrative Appeals Office (AAO) of U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) reviews denials of petitions and applications. The AAO requires a case to be very well documented for you to even have a chance of overturning USCIS’ initial decision. We have won the most difficult appeals to the AAO.
  • Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) – This is the highest administrative body for interpreting and applying U.S. immigration laws. BIA decisions are binding on all immigration judges and Department of Homeland Security officers. We have a very high success rate* at the BIA for all types of appeals, including hundreds of asylum cases.
  • 9th Circuit Court of Appeals – Headquartered in San Francisco, this is the largest of the 13 federal courts of appeals. We handle Ninth Circuit cases on a regular basis and have won a large percentage* of our cases, including ones that went to oral arguments in front of three-judge panels.
