HOUSTON, TX – Trade Press, Inc. has lauded a 1993 graduate of the University of Houston Law Center, Jacob Monty, for his recent success in a foremost immigration case. He is said to have defended the African native, the husband, and father of a US citizen who was expelled in absentia by an Immigration Judge for missing his day in court, as a former legal counsel gave an incorrect trial date.
The United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit stated, “Because he received two documents — the notice of hearing containing the information missing from the notice to appear — and neither document was independently sufficient to trigger the 'stop time rule,' my client may be eligible for cancellation of removal. Thus, we remand to the BIA to determine whether my client is eligible for cancellation.”
The client's petition for review recently was granted in partial, providing eligibility for a June 24 deletion, which was previously unavailable.
In his statement, Monty said: “After fighting this case in court for many years, it is extremely rewarding to give our client and his family good news. They placed their faith and trust in us, and I am proud that our firm was able to keep their family together.”
Having a Board Certificate in Labor and Employment Law, Monty has been practicing immigration, labor, and employment law for over 20 years. He is widely recognized nationally for employer-related issues with large Hispanic workforces.
In addition to founding Monty & Ramirez LLP, he has also collaborated with bilingual partners on employer advocacy, from business and family immigration to union issues, labor disputes, and workplace safety.
He has held the governorship and presidential appointments for the University of Houston Board of Regents, the Texas Higher Education Coordination Council, and the Texas Private Security Council
Monty is also known for leading the Center for Latin-Jewish Relations and becoming Outside Counsel for the Mexican Consulate in Houston.
