Immigration

Family Immigration

We assist clients with all types of family visas. We have extensive knowledge of the visa process and the qualifications that must be met to apply for Immediate Relative visas, Family Preference visas, and K visas (for fiancés and spouses).   


One method of obtaining lawful permanent residency is through a qualifying relative who is either a United States citizen or a lawful permanent resident. United States citizens and lawful permanent residents can help their qualifying foreign relatives in petitioning for lawful permanent residency in the United States and eventually even citizenship. There are different categories family-based immigration. 

Employment Based Immigration

 We can help employers secure non-immigrant employment-based visas E-1, E-2, E-3, H-1B (including the additional quota for beneficiaries holding master's degrees from American colleges and universities, and for cap-exempt employers/beneficiaries), H-2A, H-2B, H-3, L-1A, L-1B, O-1, P-1, P-2, P-3, R-1, and TN non-immigrant visas for foreign workers. We can also help employers negotiate the PERM (Permanent Labor Certification) and immigrant visa (Form I-140, Immigrant Petition for an Alien Worker).  

Removal Defense

  Our firm handles cases involving immigrants who are currently detained by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE). Our lawyers travel to detention centers across the nation to see if they are eligible for release on bond. Our attorneys work tirelessly to remove our clients from behind bars and fight to help them remain in America. We understand the worries, fears, anxieties, and stress individuals and their family may experience when faced with deportation or removal from the United States. 


We do our best to put the individuals and their family members at ease. We are devoted to fighting your removal from the United States by assisting you in filing the appropriate petitions, obtaining necessary documentary evidence, preparing you and your witnesses to testify, representing you before the Immigration Court and if necessary, filing motions to reconsider/reopen and/or appeals.

Personal Injury

 A car accident is a very serious matter. Victims of automobile accidents are entitled to be fairly compensated for their pain and suffering. After an accident, clients typically have many questions, such as what medical treatment is covered by insurance and if they are entitled to lost wages.


 Also, clients want to know what they have to prove at trial to recover for their pain and suffering. While answers will vary in every case, after an accident, it is important that you file a police report, and contact a car accident attorney immediately, who can answer your questions.
