Immigration

Your Immigration Defense Lawyers throughout the United States

Need help getting legal status in the US? Need assistance becoming a citizen? Do you require guidance on legal entry into the US?

Immigration is divided into the following sections:

  • ICE: Immigration and Customs Enforcement
  • CBP: Customs Border Patrol
  • EOIR: Executive Office of Immigration Review
  • DHS: Department of Homeland Security
  • USCIS: U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services

It is the Department of State (DS) that will handle out of country visas as well as immigration processing at embassies and consulates, while USCIS handles all in-country visa processing.

If you need help with an immigration matter, there are two main tracks your case can take

Visa Processing in or out of the country.

This can include adjustment of status to a lawful resident, either as a legal permanent resident (LPR) or a Green Card holder.

It can involve Non-immigrant visas such as B2 and H visas.

Immigration Defense in Court

Immigration defense involves the EOIR immigration court, an appeal with the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA), an appeal to federal court, notices to appear and expedited removals with ICE, and Special Immigration Juvenile Status (SJIS).

The Federal Government conducts a Diversity Visa Lottery each year. This lottery allows citizens of other countries to legally enter (and remain for a certain period) into the US.

Currently, the US permits over 1 million foreigners who legally reside in the country to become Legal Permanent Residents (Green Card holders), and in some cases, citizens (Naturalized). However, without the help of a well versed Immigration Attorney, the odds of obtaining Citizenship, Green Card status, or approved visas go down significantly.

Additionally, challenging circumstances, such as criminal records, abuse, asylum, and persecution -- as well as current undocumented status -- can make seeking the aid of a competent Immigration Attorney critical. We're here to help!
