Rafael Tirado & Associates, PLC is one of the leading immigration law firms in Arizona. We represent individuals of diverse nationalities and companies of various sizes, from small businesses to Fortune 500 in all types of immigration matters, including immigration court bond proceedings, deportation defense, family-based, citizenship and naturalization proceedings, as well as business, foreign investment or employment-based petitions.

We have extensive experience in immigration law and have successfully handled appeals of complicated cases, overturning decisions of the Immigration Courts in matters that other lawyers have not been able to successfully resolve.


Immigration Bonds


When an individual is detained by the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), release on bond or parole is an option for many detainees.

This allows the person to regain their freedom and enables us to define a strategy to defend them effectively in the Migration Court during their removal proceedings.

Rafael Tirado & Associates, PLC has extensive experience in immigration bond hearings. Do not sign for voluntary return or departure to your country; contact us to discuss the possibility of bail if you are detained.


Deportation Defence and Removal Cases.


Rafael Tirado & Associates, PLC has extensive experience defending clients in deportation proceedings in the Immigration Courts, both for individuals who are at liberty, as well as in cases where the case must be fought in the detention centre.

We have extensive knowledge in various defences in deportation proceedings such as:

  • Bail procedures
  • Cancellation of Removal for Non-Residents
  • Cancellation of removal for permanent residents
  • Political asylum and defence under the Convention against Torture (CAT & Withdolding)
  • Status Adjustment
  • Administrative closure and termination of removal cases

Family Immigration


Family reunification is an important goal of Rafael Tirado & Associates, and we use the tools provided by the U.S. immigration laws in that regard. According to the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), some family members may apply for permanent residency for their loved ones.

Our firm has years of practice in representing clients in Adjustment of Status cases within the United States, consular processing and waivers of inadmissibility, also known as waivers, as well as NACARA and TPS for Central American nationals.


Citizenship and Naturalisation


Becoming a U.S. citizen is the dream of millions of immigrants. If you are a permanent resident, call now for a consultation and we will discuss the possibility of representing you in your naturalization process.

Citizenship has multiple advantages over permanent residency, such as voting, political rights and is not lost through criminal activity or abandonment like permanent residency. Don't miss the time to apply for this important step in your life.

Rafael Tirado & Associates, PLC handles Citizenship and Naturalization applications, including applications under the Child Citizenship Act of 2000. We also have extensive knowledge of the immigration consequences of criminal activity, so we will carefully analyze your criminal history prior to initiating naturalization representation to ensure that your permanent residency is not at risk when you begin your citizenship application.

Call (602) 266 0292 for a consultation on any immigration case. We have offices in Phoenix and Tucson.
