Mr. Khan currently works as an associate at Youman, Madeo, & Fasano, LLP. He specializes in all areas of removal defense, petitions and applications before USCIS, guardianship proceedings in family court, and federal appeals. He has litigated in immigration courts across the country as well as in family courts in various counties throughout New York. He regularly writes appellate briefs before several federal circuits, the foremost being the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, from which he has obtained a number of successful remands.
 
Mr. Khan is originally from Long Island, New York. Having grown up in a family of immigrants and having spent much of his childhood at his father’s pharmacy located in the heart of the Dominican community near Washington Heights, Mr. Khan was intimately exposed to the struggle inherent in the immigrant experience from a very early age. These experiences impacted him profoundly and ultimately informed his decision to practice immigration law.
 
Mr. Khan's formal study of immigration law began at the William & Mary School of Law, which he attended as a Graduate Research Fellow and where he served as an Associate Justice on the William & Mary School of Law Honor Council as well as a member of the William & Mary Environmental Law & Policy Review.
 
Mr. Khan draws from his prior training in philosophy as well as his prior experience in criminal and transactional law in devising creative strategies and solutions in the course of his daily legal practice. He believes deeply that the plight of immigrants today - particularly in our loaded political system - is the new frontier for civil rights. He provided assistance to the immigrant community long before he was a licensed attorney by way of various volunteer ventures, including regularly advising immigrant detainees with the Capital Area Immigrants’ Rights Coalition during law school, assisting with free naturalization clinics throughout Virginia, lobbying in Congress for comprehensive immigration reform, and working with convicts through the Innocence Project Clinic.
 
Mr. Khan is proficient in Spanish and Urdu. He is licensed to practice law in New York and New Jersey. He is a member of the Federal Bar Association and the American Immigration Lawyers Association.
 
All of our Attorneys are active members of the American Immigration Lawyers Association.
