Motions to Reconsider and Appeals to the Administrative Appeals Office
Sometimes the government disagrees that an applicant or a beneficiary is entitled to a specific immigration benefit and denies an application or petition, giving a limited time window in which the denial can be petitioned to be reopened or appealed. Our office handles a number of motions to reopen/reconsider (MTRs) and appeals to the Administrative Appeals Office (AAO) here in Washington, DC.
Our office can review USCIS case denials and prepare an analysis of MTR/appeal options and draft a strategic plan. Often, a USCIS denial is so incorrect based on the facts of the case or the applicable law, that it should be appealed immediately. Similarly, sometimes USCIS makes clerical errors which require a motion to reopen/reconsider to be filed. Finally, there are case denials which, for strategic purposes such as ability to renew H-1B past 6th year expiration, are necessary.
We have handled a number of MTRs and AAO appeals and we would be happy to review your case and provide an action plan. Often this initial analysis and consultation service is free. However, our ability to help effectively rests on hearing about a denied case as soon as possible. Please do not hesitate to contact us.

M.H., Bangladesh (April 30, 2013). "“I am very happy that my long journey towards the green card finally ends here. You have always been courteous, friendly and professional. You always responded to my emails in a timely manner. Anytime I left you a voice mail, you called me right back. There has never been a lack of communication which I really appreciate. You also made me comfortable asking you any questions throughout the process. Any time I sent you something, you turned in around as quickly as possible. I could not have asked for anything more than the quality of service that you and your team provided. My wife and I would like to say thanks to you and your team members one more time. During my past 12 years in the U.S., I took help from numerous immigration attorneys and I can say without any hesitation that you and your team have been the best. If I ever come across someone seeking for immigration counsel, I will certainly refer to you. Thank you again."
