I have practiced immigration law for my entire professional career, first with a refugee organization and then in private practice. I continue to collaborate with and mentor to various non-profit organizations, criminal attorneys, etc., in order to provide people with the most comprehensive representation available.
Immigration attorneys (sometimes called “green card lawyers”) represent people who want to come to the United States, whether it be for schooling, work, or just a visit. Immigration lawyers can also help “illegal” immigrants found living in the U.S. without permission. Immigration laws govern who can enter the U.S., how long they can stay, what they can do while they are here, and how they can become American citizens. If you are not a U.S. citizen and want to apply for a green card or other visa, or if you are already in the U.S. and have been threatened with deportation, an immigration lawyer can help you.
