¡No Tiene Que Salir!


Immigration is a complex area of law that is ever-changing and often quite overwhelming and frustrating.  Careful attention to detail in handling all matters related to your case, including your answers to questions on immigration applications, can make the difference between legal status and deportation.  Having a skilled and knowledgeable attorney that keeps up to date with current immigration laws is essential to ensuring that you and your family stay together.

There are two different branches of the Immigration process that handles relief for immigrants.  The first branch is the United States Immigration and Citizenship Services (USCIS).  USCIS handles a wide range of applications ranging from family petitions to business visas.  The second branch of Immigration is the Executive Office of Immigration Review (EOIR), which is known as Immigration Court.  EOIR handles all deportation proceedings that can lead to a deportation order.  In order to properly ensure that you and your family will not be torn apart, our office makes certain your applications are properly marked, that any criminal offenses do not affect your chances for a favorable outcome, and that we present sufficient evidence, coupled with intelligent legal arguments, to enable an Immigration judge or officer to rule in your favor.

Our office handles many different areas of immigration such as family petitions through adjustment or consular processing, labor certifications, business visas, waivers, U-visas for those that have been victims of crimes, and victims against women's act (VAWA) petitions.  In addition, our attorneys have experience in deportation defense cases, where we represent our clients in immigration court for their asylum, withholding, Convention Against Torture (CAT) cases, cancellation of removal for non-residents, cancellation of deportation of residents, and contesting any allegations immigration has against you.  Immigration law changes often and those changes can affect whether you can qualify for relief now or at any time in the future.  It is important to consult with one of our attorneys to ensure you can take action now to obtain the relief you seek.
