We represent our clients in Texas and California within the U.S. federal immigration courts. We personally handle all immigration matters throughout the entire immigration process.
Whether our clients are seeking a family-based or employment petition, nonimmigrant visa, naturalization, or representation within the Immigration Courts we will be able to zealously represent and help them navigate through the U.S. immigration system.
Further, we provide our clients with an open communication policy in which they are free to call or e-mail to discuss their case when they feel the need to do so.
We feel we are partners with our clients through this process of achieving their goals for themselves and members of their family.
We zealously represent our clients in removal or deportation proceedings in seeking relief from removal.
An arrest and/or detainment with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) can be very stressful not only for the person detained but his or her family as well. Further, a Notice to Appear can be just as stressful because most people do not know what the future may hold.
The most important thing to do is find proper representation before the Immigration Courts so there may be an opportunity to seek relief from removal proceedings.
Further, for those who have been removed from the United States, there may be an opportunity to seek Permission to Reapply to the United States after Deportation or Removal. These are extremely complicated cases, but it does provide a chance for someone to be reunited with his or her family.
We provide our clients with such representation, seeking such relief if possible. If relief is granted, then we further help our clients by assisting them in the remainder of their immigration needs.
Also, for those who have received notice of date, time, and location of a Master Calender Hearing, we may be able to represent you in contesting such charges or requesting relief from removal.
Immigration Attorney and Counselor
A person may be able to become eligible for permanent residence (green card) through a family member, job opening or offering, refugee or asylum status, or many other special provisions.
It is important to understand the current position in which that person finds him or herself and creatively find ways to help them achieve this within the immigration system. Further, those seeking such permanent status must satisfy requirements that they are admissible into the United States.
This can oftentimes become a very complicated process. We enjoy the complexity of individuals cases and in helping our clients achieve their dreams.
If you are no longer able to work because of your physical or mental disability and have been denied by Social Security, we provide representation in your appeal to obtain your back and future payments.
For those seeking representation because they have been denied by Social Security and have a valid claim of physical or mental impairment that causes them to no longer be able to work, we represent them in their appeal.
Because Burke Barclay is a registered attorney/representative with the Social Security Administration, you will not have to pay attorney fees unless your case is successful.
We understand what you are going through and will provide zealous representation of your case. We work personally with your physicians to help build the best possible case.
If you have been denied your right to Social Security disability, we can help.
How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?
Before having the opportunity to practice law, Burke worked side by side with people wishing for a better life in the United States. Now practicing immigration law, our firm seeks to help those seeking to improve their lives. We hope to be an asset to those who seek our assistance.
Does your firm provide pro bono legal services or otherwise participate in your community?
Yes. For those qualifying for T (victims of human trafficking) or U (victims of crimes) visas, we may offer pro bono services if they would not be able to afford legal representation otherwise.
We seek to assist those who may not be able to qualify for help from charitable organizations, but at the same time do not have the resources to pay for a private attorney.
We believe we may be the only source of help they may have and if the client is willing to pay for all filing fees, then our services are offered free of charge.
What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?
Our website is always continuing to educate our clients so that they may assist themselves in furthering their case within the U.S. immigration system. Once someone becomes a client, they have access to our client area in which they are free to use the resources we have compiled.
We believe our relationship with our clients is a partnership. Working together, is the means by which we both can achieve the desired goal.
