Raleigh Immigration Law Firm

Do you love everything about removal defense except for actually going to court and dealing with clients?

Do you have 5+ years of immigration court experience, but are at a point in your life where you'd like to just focus on the legal arguments and preparing awesome evidence packages, possibly while in your pajamas or on a remote island?


We need someone to do the "behind the scenes" work for our removal cases. Your job will entail:

  • Creating suggested evidence lists.
  • Reviewing declarations and providing follow-up questions for staff to ask declarants.
  • Overseeing creation of the TOC and evidence packets.
  • Answering questions from staff.
  • Writing pre-hearing statements.
  • Writing an outline of the arguments for the closing in court.
  • Discussing case strategy with other attorneys at the firm. TBH, you will often be the one who knows the answer.
  • PD requests, MTCs, MTTs, MTRs, etc. That is, all types of motions.
  • All areas of removal defense may come up, but primary case types are 42Bs and 589s.

There are an average of 1-2 IHs per month and an average of 1 BIA appeal per month. These are the most common matters, but additional matters will come up. If you want to do the occasional PFR in the 4th or 11th circuit, that's also on the table.

We pay $1,250 per 42B or 589 in court, $1500 per BIA appeal, and $250 per I-246 or parole request. Other types of cases will be paid along these lines depending on the typical amount of work involved.


5+ years of immigration court experience, including 42B and 589s. You also have solid overall knowledge of immigration law (this will be tested), and a willingness to continue researching and learning.

To apply, please email with your resume and 3 references, ideally including a former employer and someone that you've done contract work for. (Applicants won't be excluded for not being able to provide these specific references.)

Please put "I'm a geek for removal defense" in the subject line.

We'll likely make a decision by May 20.
