Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Inaugural Post: Welcome to my new Blog!

Rate this Entry

Welcome to my new blog at  I just wanted to introduce myself and give you an idea of what you can expect to see here.>>


First off, my name is Matthew Kolken, and I am an Immigration Lawyer.  I am admitted to practice in the courts of the State of lace w:st="on">New Yorklace>, the United States District Court for the Western District of New York, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. I have been a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) since October 1, 1997.  >>


My firm, Kolken & Kolken, is principally located in Buffalo, New York but I travel all across the lace w:st="on">United Stateslace> to represent individuals in Immigration Court proceedings.  Unlike many immigration lawyers the focus of my practice is deportation defense, and waivers, although I do handle cases in all areas of the immigration law.>>


The main subject matter of this blog is going to be issues relating to Immigration Court proceedings, deportation defense, and issues of inadmissibility and deportability (known under the generic term "removability" ).>>


I will attempt to speak in plain language and will avoid legalese whenever possible.  That being said, things will at times get technical, and when appropriate I will be utilizing the correct terms of art for any immigration practitioners who may be reading the blog.  >>


Feel free to ask me non-case specific question right on the blog, but understand that there is no actual or implied attorney/client relationship formed by reading this blog, and past successes do not guarantee future results.  >>


If you would like to speak to me about a case specific question, you are going to have to call my office to schedule an appointment to speak to me.>>


I'm excited to be here, and will do my best to put new content up on the blog as often as possible, so be sure to check back often.  Also, you may follow me on Twitter at, and my firm website is >>
