He has filed many successful motions to reopen with the Immigration Courts and the BIA for clients with final orders of removal or deportation. Mr. Lorenzon regularly negotiates with Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers and has acquired deferred action for clients who are facing imminent removal. Where his clients have been detained by ICE, Mr. Lorenzon has persuaded ICE to release the client and grant stays of deportation when the client has significant family ties and compelling reasons to remain in the United States. Mr. Lorenzon’s passion is to help people achieve “the American Dream” and to keep families united. His desire to help others comes from his deep faith and many years serving the Roman Catholic Church as a Director of Music Ministry, prior to his career as a lawyer. Mr. Lorenzon is an immigrant himself, coming to the United States as a student on an F-1 visa in 1995, and his goal is to help others do the same.

Prior to his legal career, he served for many years as Music Director of Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Macedonia, Ohio. He is also a licensed commercial pilot and flight instructor, holding an instrument rating, multi-engine rating and instructor ratings (single, multi-engine and instrument).
