Thank you for visiting my profile on Avvo. Although we feel right at home arguing complex points of legal theory, we focus on practical outcomes above all. We don't fight with opposing counsel over hypotheticals -- our goal is the best possible result for our clients, nothing more. ---
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.
