About me

Mr. Mayer practices Immigration Law only.  He began his Immigration Law career by writing appeal briefs for other attorneys. His briefs were so successful that more and more attorneys offered him work. When he received his law license, he quickly expanded into all the other parts of immigration practice. Mr. Mayer's philosophy has been to put more hard work into each case than any other lawyer.  Since he founded the firm, that philosophy has ensured that all clients get their very best chance of success. That standard will never fall or be compromised.

The firm specializes in Immigration Law, period. It doesn't practice any other variety of law. Compared to other law offices, it does charge a slightly higher rate. It is axiomatic that in life "you pay for what you get". This firm provides better service and obtains superior results because it does not take any shortcuts. Taking shortcuts is not an option when the clients lives, or safety, are hanging in the balance. If you want bargain rate representation, this is the wrong office for you.

The firm's clients include a restaurant chain, a land development corporation, a vocational college, a single unit restaurant and over one hundred and fifty private individuals.  Mr. Mayer also been invited to join two other local law firms as "of Counsel" for Immigration Law issues.
