Matthew Borowski Admitted to United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit

Buffalo, New York based immigration lawyer Matthew Borowski was admitted to practice in the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit on January 25, 2019. The San Francisco, California based federal appeals court exercises jurisdiction over Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Washington State, Guam, and the Northern Mariana Islands. The Ninth Circuit is by far the largest of the thirteen courts of appeals, with 29 active judgeships.

This admission allows Matthew Borowski to represent clients for Petitions for Review of administrative agency decisions, most notably appeals of Board of Immigration Appeals decisions in cases that arose within the Ninth Circuit's area of jurisdiction. Mr. Borowski has already filed appeals of decisions in two cases that arose at the Adelanto Immigration Court in Adelanto, California, which is a detained immigration court situated within a privately owned immigration detention facility (owned by GEO Group).

Matthew has already been licensed to practice before the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit since January 2015. The Second Circuit and the Ninth Circuit together exercise jurisdiction over portions of the United States with a population of over 85 million.

If you need to appeal a Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) decision to the Ninth Circuit, Second Circuit, or any other federal court of appeal, contact Borowski Immigration Law today to discuss your options. We can handle cases nationwide.

Borowski Law Featured in Media for Representing Dreamer Whose Status Was Revoked Despite Criminal Charges Being Dropped

UAlbany student detained, ordered deported despite dropped criminal charges

Read an article by Mallory Moench at the Albany Times Union about Omar Helalat, a Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipient and member of the Tau Sigma National Honor Society at the University at Albany, who is represented by Borowski Law. Omar Helalat was detained by immigration authorities, had his DACA revoked, and has been ordered removed

From the article:
"When he cheated on his girlfriend of a year, she accused him of trying to strangle her. In March, he was arrested on domestic violence charges and sent to the Albany County jail. His father came from Rockland County, just north of New York City, and paid to bail his only son out of jail, but Helalat was already in immigration detention. The government revoked his DACA and started his deportation.

The charges against Helalat were dismissed when his ex-girlfriend wrote a letter in his defense to the court. The case was unable to proceed without victim cooperation, a spokesperson for the Albany County District Attorney's office said."

The story was also covered by News 12, who interviewed Matthew Borowski. View the story here.
