Case Results

  • Cancellation of Removal
    Immigration
    On December 4, 2020 the Immigration Judge granted my client's 42b Cancellation of Removal case for non permanent residents. My client, a Mexican national, entered the United States by himself when he was 16 years old. He has lived in this country for over 25 years and is the father of 4 United States Citizen boys. My client works in the fields and is a leader in his community. He is a loving father and contributes to our society as a taxpayer and property owner. We were able to show the Immigration Judge that removing my client back to Mexico would result in exceptional and extremely unusual hardship to his four boys whose ages range from 21 to 3 years old.
  • Cancellation of Removal
    Immigration
    On July 30th, 2020 my client was sworn in as a United States Citizen. She was born in Cuban and had been a Permanent Resident of the United States for a long time. She was placed in deportation proceedings after being arrested and convicted of insurance fraud. We successfully represented her husband in a Cancellation of Removal case for Permanent Residents. Her husband and children are Citizens and Permanent Residents of the United States. All of her grandchildren were born in this country. The Immigration Judge gave her green card back and a year later she was sworn in as a United States Citizen.
  • Family Petition & Green Card
    Immigration
    My client became a Legal Permanent Resident of the United States on October 26, 2020. He was brought from Venezuela to the United States by his parents when he was 22 months old. He was the beneficiary of DACA and was able to graduate from high school and college. He works as an engineer in an aviation company. My client married his high school sweetheart on September 9, 2019. Our office filed a family petition and green card application on their behalf. After a very quick interview with the Immigration Officer both applications were granted and my client became a Legal Permanent Resident of the United States.
  • Charges Dropped
    Sexual Battery
    Sexual battery case not filed by State Attorney’s Office. Client was arrested for sexual battery. The clients had major concerns due to the fact that they were not a US citizen. Prior to the case being filed Magilligan Law contacted the State Attorney’s Office to discuss deficiencies with the case and reasons why it should not be filed. The State Attorney Office ultimately declined to filed charges.
  • Favorable Outcome
    Felony Battery
    Successful reduction of charge from Felony Battery to misdemeanor. Client was in his last year of medical school and was charged with a felony. A felony conviction would have prevented the client from becoming a licensed physician. Magilligan Law pointed out to the State Attorneys Office that alleged victim had no independent recollection of the events based on a statement he gave the police. The victim was able to resolve the case with a misdemeanor.
  • Not Guilty Verdict
    Battery Charges
    Client acquitted by Jury. Client was accused of battery. Allegations were client hit alleged victim with car and then proceeded to hit alleged victim with a baton. Successfully argued self defense to jury who came back with a verdict of not guilty.
