After the horrific tragedy of September 11th, 2001, Mr. NeJame, long established as a civil rights activist and vigorous supporter of the United States Constitution, found himself in the midst of a national dilemma. With the real threat of domestic terrorism, also came a real new threat to our civil liberties and freedoms. Representing a large number of individuals from a variety of religions, ethnicities, cultures and countries, Mr. NeJame commenced representing numerous innocent individuals who suddenly found their liberties being challenged and their rights being threatened. Immigration matters became paramount and the Firm started handling many immigration related matters. Having lectured to hundreds of Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents in San Antonio, Texas, regarding law enforcement and their relationship with ethnic communities, to working with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) and regional law enforcement to prevent profiling and civil rights abuses, Mr. NeJame came to understand the very genuine need for the creation of a strong, knowledgeable and talented Immigration Division for the Firm. He approached this charge with the same commitment to excellence and vigorous representation which the Firm had already established. He sought out an amazing team to efficiently, honestly and competently handle the tremendous challenges, inequities, delays, backlogs, and evolving laws which define immigration in America today. Whether it is any one of a variety of types of visas, deportation, asylum, corporate compliance or any other business related issue, it is imperative that every client receive the respect, attention and answers they are entitled to and deserve.
