OUR IMMIGRATION PRACTICE
U.S. Immigration law is complex and highly regulated. The law serves a variety of purposes: reuniting U.S. citizens and residents with relatives who live in different countries; providing an incentive for foreign investment in the U.S. economy; and connecting U.S. employers with valuable employees. Our Firm handles these matters and more .
Our goal is to provide individualized, personal service
that is proactive, responsive and accessible at
reasonable fees. The firm’s philosophy is simple: the
courage, sacrifice and hope that immigrants bring to the
U.S. should be matched by their Attorney’s competence,
responsiveness and zealous advocacy.
Whether you are facing deportation and potential separation
from your loved ones, starting a family through an
international adoption, hiring your perfect employment
candidate from overseas, or fleeing persecution, we can
help you. Whatever your issue, this firm labors on behalf
of foreign nationals in the full-spectrum of immigration

Representation at USCIS interviews
Filling out the application is just the first step in a visa application process. The U.S. government sets strict requirements on qualifications for filing. Mistakes on an application may lead to crucial delays and a potential denial. The disruption of family, home, job and life in the United States, and in some cases, an individuals’ freedom is at stake.
Each type of visa comes with its own set of essential criteria, which must precisely match your qualifications. We will discuss your short-term and ultimate immigration goals to set up a long-range plan. We thoroughly analyze your situation to choose the appropriate pathway, and then meticulously gather evidence that proves each element of your eligibility. We review red flags — such as past arrests, deportations or illegal employment — and address these potentially-damaging issues from the start.
We handle immigration visas for individuals and employers. We assist professional workers (H-1B) aliens of extraordinary ability (O-1 and EB-1), business transferees (L-1), students with status questions, National Interest Waivers (NIW) applicants, foreigners with an Advanced Degree or Exceptional Ability (EB-2), and many others. We understand that is it important for businesses to have access to a global workforce, and we understand that the United States continues to be a magnet for the world’s best and brightest.
FAMILY-BASED IMMIGRATION AND WAIVERS
Our law firm handles all family-based immigration issues. We represent families pursuing a Green Card in the U.S. and at U.S. Embassies outside of the U.S. Our immigration practice includes marriage, fiancée, and other family immigration matters, including employment authorization. We assist clients with various waivers, including hardship waivers for fraud, crimes and overstay. We also handle Provisional Waivers (I-601A) and J-1 Waivers of the 2-year home residency requirement. Our family practice includes Deportation Defense and Deferred Action for childhood arrivals (DACA).
THE CHANGING IMMIGRATION LANDSCAPE
Immigration policy and laws are frequently modified, creating an endlessly fluctuating immigration landscape with senseless roadblocks that can tear families apart and block good employees from jobs in the U.S. The various agencies that administer immigration benefits regularly update their procedures, forms and guidelines, further upsetting the system. We stay current on changes in immigration law and remain ready to act upon potential changes in the pipeline.
To successfully advise you, we consider both the laws as they exist and the possibilities for beneficial — as well as harmful — reforms. We relentlessly pursue your case and develop unique solutions to complicated issues.
