Immigration Law

Our firm provides comprehensive immigration law services to both individual and corporate clients, by helping them through the family-based or the employment-based immigration process. We analyze each client’s situation and recommend the process that will best achieve the client’s immigration needs. These range from temporary visits and residence in the U.S. for pleasure, business, studies and employment, to permanent residence through family relations, employment and asylum. We also represent clients who are in removal proceedings before the immigration courts and facing deportation.

We help clients throughout the immigration cycle the key milestones of which include:

  • consular processing of requirements for initial entry to the U.S.
  • monitoring to ensure maintenance of legal immigration status
  • applying for permanent residence
  • applying for naturalization to U.S. citizen

Family-based Immigration

If you are a U.S. citizen or a Permanent Resident we can help you bring your family members to live in the U.S. as Permanent Residents (Green Card holders). We file the initial benefits application with the U.S. Citizens and Immigration Services (USCIS) for your family members and when approved, we assist with consular processing of the appropriate visa for entry into the U.S.

If your family member is already in the U.S., we file the necessary petition with USCIS, which when approved will make the family member eligible for the Green Card by applying for Adjustment of Status to Permanent Resident.
