If you need an immigration attorney for anything from a removal proceeding to a simple application for a visa, call me today and set up an appointment.

How an Immigration Lawyer Can Help You

   While the paperwork necessary to get your green card, become a U.S. citizen, or get a visa may seem simple, there are many hidden pitfalls waiting to trap you.


    You need an immigration attorney to help you file your paperwork.  An immigration lawyer can prevent delay in your application and risks to your rights.  


    I have people come into my office all the time who filled out their immigration paperwork wrong, received a request for additional evidence, and have a short timeline to fix it.  As I learned when I was little, it's always better to do things the right way, and an immigration lawyer can ensure that you're not in this position.


    I believe in exploring every possible angle when submitting immigration paperwork to avoid potential hurdles.  For every immigration case I submit, I do extensive research to ensure that everything is done the right way, not answer questions off-the-hip.

   I believe in making sure that your application is processed easily and without unnecessary delay.  This means ensuring that we send in your paperwork with the evidence necessary so it can be processed.  This can mean we submit a large amount of evidence, and it can take a long time to gather, but it's worth it so your application can be processed the first time without additional requests for evidence.


    Immigration attorney can also help things run smoothly in interviews for green cards or naturalization.  If necessary, I make sure we have all the evidence necessary for your immigration interview and attend with you to make sure there is no unnecessary stress.
