With removal proceedings, the result may be that you will be returned to your home county. In many cases the United States government will not let you return to the U.S. for years.

Facing those facts you naturally feel frightened and scared. In many case you are here alone and isolated from your loved ones, who can provide you with the support you need when you are making difficult decisions.

With so much at stake you need to seriously consider the quality of the attorney you hire to assist you. You should try to hire the best attorney you can afford.

Mr. Sylva is prepared to help you obtain a bond for a loved one, who is being held on an ICE hold. He can represent you or a loved one in the Asylum office or in Immigration Court. He is also ready to file an appeal on your behalf with the Board of Immigration Appeals or if needed to represent you before the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.

Mr. Sylva believes that he can provide high quality legal services at fees that are reasonable and can be made affordable with a monthly payment plan or using a credit card.

Family-based and Business Immigration

In family-based and employment-based immigration the risk of being returned to your home country is real. Again, you should be careful about the attorney you hire because your attorney may affect what happens to you or your loved ones for years to come.

Although a deportation defense case can take many hearings and appeals to the Board of Immigration Appeals or the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, we will work just as passionately to assist you in your quest for a visa based on your family or business. Visa applications can take years to resolve, but you can be assured that we will work diligently and tirelessly to see to it that your visa is approved.

Over his career Attorney Sylva has helped many clients who seeking visas through the bureaucratic and legal systems. If you decide to retain him, he will work diligently for you. He will be accessible to you to answer your phone calls or to be available to meet with you.

An honest Assessment of your case

Mr. Sylva will give you an honest assessment of your case and will explain what you can reasonably expect to be the final result in your case. He will not give you false hopes of a successful outcome so that you will hire him today only to learn later that your case had little or no chance of success.

The need to act quickly

If you have a loved one in detention, then you know that the loved one wants to be released quickly, Mr. Sylva is prepared to act quickly to obtain the release of your relative.

Preparing your case for the asylum office takes time and cannot be done at the last minute. If your case is before the Immigration Judge, you must start to prepare for your hearing as soon as you. Appeals to the Board of Immigration Appeals have strict deadlines that must be obeyed. If your case needs to be appealed to the 9th Circuit, the court has similar strict deadlines.

If your case is family based or is a business immigration matter, you should meet with an attorney as soon as you can to enjoy a successful resolution of your matter.

Mr. Sylva asks that you call his office and schedule your initial meeting to see he can assist you. Please call (925) 300 8811.
