This is only a brief overview of the various immigration options for individuals wanting to come to the USA either on a permanent or temporary basis. The information is neither intended to be complete nor exhaustive, and is not intended as legal advice.


Mercedes began her law practice in Miami where she attended Nova Southeastern University Law School.  In law school, Mercedes won the Silver award for over 80 pro bono hours and worked on the Innocence Project.   Shortly after graduating law school Mercedes was hired as Assistant Attorney General for the State of Florida working in the Criminal Appellate Department. There, she handled criminal appeals and argued before the Third District Court of Appeals. 

Mercedes relocated to her native New York where she worked as an Associate with McBreen & Kopko, a boutique aviation law firm located in Jericho, Long Island.  After working with two prominent Long Island based Immigration Firms, Mercedes decided to go into private practice exclusively practicing Immigration Law.

Deportation and Removal cases are of the most complicated immigration matters one could have. Once you are placed in removal proceedings, you must appear in Immigration Court before a judge. It is then imperative to show the court how you may be eligible for relief from removal/deportation from the United States.
