My experience as an international student in the United States truly opened my eyes to the incredible opportunities and increased quality of life this country offers for those willing to work hard to pursue their dreams and those of their family. I was fortunate enough to become teammates and friends with many other international students from around the world. It was hearing stories of their experiences growing up in developing countries - in some cases amidst civil war and severe poverty - that inspired me to assist my fellow immigrants, as well as small business owners seeking to hire qualified workers, in navigating the complex and often intimidating processes that must be overcome in order to obtain legal status in the United States. I treat all immigration matters as if they were my own, as I know from personal experience the strong personal and emotional connection associated with the immigration process.
The practice of immigration law is a true passion for me. It is a privilege to come to work each day in order to help my fellow immigrants pursue the “American Dream.” I look forward to the opportunity of helping you and your family make this dream a reality, just like I myself have been fortunate enough to do.

It is my pleasure to endorse Attorney Gilgannon. Immigration practice is exceptionally complex, unforgiving and often frustrating. It requires strong character, determination and time investment. I see that Mr. Gilgannon possesses all these qualifications.
