Our practice includes:

1. Filing appeals and motions in the agencies themselves, including appeals, motions to reopen, and motions to reconsider in the Board of Immigration Appeals and the Administrative Appeals Office;
2. Challenging final removal orders in the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, including petitions to review adverse Board of Immigration Appeals orders on direct appeals and motions to reopen, as well as orders in reinstatement proceedings and administrative removal orders;
3. Litigating habeas corpus, mandamus, and Administrative Procedure Act actions, among others, in the federal district courts and federal appellate courts; and

Joshua Altman

Drawing on his layered immigration and litigation expertise, Joshua A. Altman represents Altman Immigration Law, PCs clients in litigation and appellate matters. He focuses his practice on complex administrative appeals and motions, federal court actions, and federal appellate review. He also provides technical assistance to attorneys and serves as appellate counsel at trial.

Throughout his career, Josh has worked diligently to advance justice both in and out of government service. After becoming an attorney, Josh joined the Department of Justice, Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR). This federal agency houses both the Immigration Courts and the Board of Immigration Appeals. He first clerked locally, for the immigration judges at the Immigration Court in San Diego. Next, he moved to the agency’s headquarters near Washington, DC, where he wrote decisions for the Board of Immigration Appeals and worked on policy and litigation in the agency’s Office of the General Counsel and Office of the Director. After almost 10 years of government service, Josh left to practice civil litigation in Orange County.

During his service at the Immigration Court and at the Board, Josh drafted decisions addressing issues including custody and parole, visa eligibility, treatment of vulnerable populations, removability, various forms of relief and protection from removal, and motions addressing each of the same. In particular, he cultivated expertise on cases within the jurisdiction of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, the federal appellate court overseeing many western states, including California. Within EOIR’s Office of the General Counsel and front office, he advised on issues related to Comprehensive Immigration Reform; vulnerable populations; Congressional testimony, inquiries, and reports; disclosures under the Freedom of Information Act and the Privacy Act; regulations and forms; interagency planning; and litigation. In his civil practice, Josh litigated on behalf of his clients about wide array of state practice areas, including charitable solicitations law, employment law, and juvenile delinquency. He then spent two years serving as the senior attorney at Jacobs & Schlesinger LLP, a highly regarded full services immigration law firm in San Diego.

Josh received his J.D. degree with cum laude honors from Washington University in St. Louis in 2008 and his Bachelor of Arts degree from Duke University in 2002.

Josh is a member of the State Bar of California. He is admitted to practice before several federal courts, including the United States District Courts for the Southern and Central Districts of California and the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Josh is also a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association and the Federal Bar Association.
