Immigration Practice

As an immigration attorney, Ms. Richards is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association. In 2015, she was cited on the Facebook page "Cool Immigration Lawyers" for being the first attorney to convince the Denver Immigration Court to dismiss a child's case after the Department of Homeland Security repeatedly failed to observe this child's rights under current Immigration Laws. This was an enormous and meaningful victory for immigration advocates throughout Colorado and throughout the United States. Ms. Richards supports immigration reform and advocates this with local and national politicians.

If you are in immigration court, NEVER GO IT ALONE! The government attorney and the immigration judge are not there to help you navigate the complicated immigration system. Hiring an attorney increases your chances of winning exponentially. Hire an AILA attorney to accompany you to court. It may be expensive, but it will increase not only your time in the U.S. with your family, but also your chances of being able to stay in the U.S. with them permanently.

Ms. Richards' immigration practice focuses on

  • Family Immigration
