The attorneys in our Danbury and New Haven area offices cover almost all aspects of immigration law: family, business, removal and employer sanctions cases. We also do a lot of litigation in the federal courts and before the Board of Immigration Appeals, USCIS Administrative Appeals Office and other administrative tribunals. A number of our cases have been reported in the media, mostly in Connecticut, but also in the New York Times, Washington Post, Boston Globe and on CBS Evening News.
We are now developing a specialty practice and a second web site devoted to helping green card-holders apply for citizenship. If you are a permanent resident who would like to be a citizen, take a minute to look at this site: http://www.citizenshipyes.com.
