Immigration Law Services and Specialties


Family-Based Immigration Law

Bringing a spouse, fiance, child, or other close relative to live in the United States is often the only contact many Americans will have with our immigration system. Some close relatives are eligible to apply for a permanent residence (a "green card") while in the United States through a process called adjustment of status, while others will have to wait in their home country for an immigrant visa to be available to them. We work with green card applicants both inside and outside the United States.

Deportation Defense Lawyers

When a noncitizen commits a crime, overstays a visa, or enters the United States illegally, deportation proceedings often follow. We have experience with both criminal and non-criminal cases before Immigration Judges.

Many permanent residents of the United States are finding themselves in deportation proceedings following a trip outside the U.S. As they reenter the United States, they are surprised to discover their fingerprints match a database record from an old criminal conviction. This same criminal conviction may not have created an immigration problem for them in the past. Depending upon certain factors, relief from deportation may be available.

Federal Litigation Attorneys

When agency procedures don’t work or internal appeals have been exhausted, non citizens often have the right to pursue relief in the federal courts of the United States. We have experience in taking action in the federal courts when necessary.

Asylum

A person may qualify for asylum when they are unable or unwilling to return to their home country because of past persecution or a well-founded fear of future persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion.

We have represented asylum-seekers from Armenia, Cambodia, Cameroon, Central African Republic, China, Columbia, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Djibouti, El Salvador, Eritrea, Ethiopia, The Gambia, Guatemala, Guinea, Haiti, Honduras, Indonesia, Iraq, Jamaica, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Kuwait, Laos, Lebanon, Liberia, Mali, Mexico, Mongolia, Nepal, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Pakistan, Palestine, Philippines, Russia, Rwanda, Saudi Arabia, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan, Syria, Tibet, Thailand, Togo, Tunisia, Uganda, Uzbekistan, Venezuela, Vietnam, Yemen and other countries. Asylum cases typically must be filed within one year of arriving in the United States.
