About Me

Our immigration lawyers, located in Washington, DC, have more than 60 collective years of experience practicing immigration and nationality law.  We aggressively represent companies in I-9 compliance and in obtaining work authorization for their foreign employees.  We also enjoy working with individual clients, with their myriad life situations, routine or difficult, in need of immigration services.


We are known for being good communicators.  Our clients never have problems getting through to us in a reasonable time, to obtain answers to their questions or just their case status.  Clients have rated us highly in terms of our competence, professional demeanor and the level of care we provide. 

Our approach is to schedule an initial consultation, for a minimal fee, to analyze the case, and to determine all available immigration options and possible problems.  We believe in informing clients of all risks and benefits, so they can make informed choices and not just rely on our judgment.  At this stage, we will offer a proposal for the work, detailing all fees and costs, and providing different payment plan options.  Once retained, we work with our clients to prepare and file their applications in the way most likely to succeed.  Most importantly, we do what we say we are going to do.


In the 26 years since Morris Deutsch created the firm, we have helped uncountable people from all walks of life to become permanent residents and later US citizens.  We have helped employers, large and small, with their foreign employees.  We have assisted asylees, refugees, crime victims and abuse victims to remain in the U.S. permanently.  And, we have helped people in trouble to avoid deportation from the U.S.
