We provide expert immigration advice and representation in a wide array of U.S. immigration and citizenship matters.  Our mission is to assist our clients in reaching their immigration goals efficiently and effectively.  We take the time to listen to our clients, to thoroughly analyze their needs, to devise the most efficient legal strategy for their legal immigration needs, and to honestly counsel them about their legal options.  We represent clients who wish to obtain “green cards” to remain in the country permanently and who wish to visit, study or work in the United States with a non-immigrant visa for a temporary period.  We are proud of our record of effective representation of our clients in immigration and citizenship matters.

Immigration law is complex and ever-changing. For that reason, we strongly recommend consulting with an experienced immigration attorney.
