The ADDA is an organization of and for deportation defense attorneys in the New York City metropolitan area.

Our focus is on improving the practice of deportation defense through access to local as well as national information and practice resources, and fostering an environment of mutual support and encouragement.

We meet monthly for dinners with lively discussions on issues relevant to our practices, and lectures on current issues, given by some of the immigration bar’s top deportation defense attorneys. 

Our website plans include links to immigration blogs, a brief bank, an expert bank, and discussion sites.

NEW MEMBERS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME
