Daniel A. Meyer is our Associate Immigration Attorney, focusing on representing immigrants before USCIS, the Immigration Court and in Federal Court setting.
Born and raised in Queens, N.Y., Daniel brings a distinct passion for immigration law and an extensive experience in representing a broad range of clients in their immigration matters.
Mr. Meyer began his practice as an associate immigration attorney in New York, N.Y. in 2017, where he specialized in removal and deportation defense. Here, Mr. Meyer predominantly and successfully represented asylum seekers fleeing persecution suffered in their home countries prior to fleeing for the United States. Mr. Meyer’s immigration litigation focus in New York also included representing dozens of clients on a weekly basis in removal proceedings, including appearances in the New York, Newark, Philadelphia, Boston, Washington D.C., Cleveland, and Buffalo Immigration Courts. In addition, Mr. Meyer makes regular appearances before the USCIS, representing clients seeking immigration benefits through family-based petitions to the agency.
Mr. Meyer has provided successful and zealous representation on the behalf of a wide-range of clientele, including, but not limited to, asylum seekers fleeing from persecution on account of;
- the unauthorized practice of religion, violation of family planning laws, and/or the prohibited practice of Falun Gong within the People’s Republic of China;
- women and young adults being victimized by national policies allowing for systemic patterns of domestic and sexual abuse within Guatemala, Honduras, El-Salvador and Columbia; and
- having fled their native country as a result of their race, gender, and/or political beliefs.
Daniel also makes regular appearances in detained venues of the Immigration Court in both bond and removal defense proceedings. Among the applications for relief Daniel has successfully litigated are LPR and non-LPR cancellation of removal, petitions for adjustments of status, waivers/administrative closures, requests for prosecutorial discretion, motions for termination of proceedings and appellate appearances in front of the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). In fact, in May of 2019, the BIA issued a landmark precedential decision in Matter of Lourdes Suyapa PENA-MEJIA, in which Mr. Meyer challenged the interpretation of the Supreme Court decision reached in Pereira v. Sessions (2018).
Mr. Meyer now brings his seasoned immigration litigation experience from New York City to the Cipolla Law Group and continues to represent his clients with the same fervor and passion he has shown as a practitioner. He is duly sworn and authorized to practice law by the State of New York and has been provisionally approved for his Illinois bar license pending process.
