Practice area

Steven Vosbikian, Esquire is a founding member of Vosbikian & Vosbikian, L.L.C., focusing exclusively on immigration law. Mr. Vosbikian has earned a superb reputation as an immigration attorney after having dedicated his primary emphasis in this area of practice for more than twenty-five years. His many clients can attest to his passionate and dedicated approach, personal attention to detail, and creative style in finding the appropriate legal solution to complex immigration matters.

Mr. Vosbikian received his bachelor's degree in Business Administration from Temple University in 1971 in Philadelphia, PA. Soon thereafter, he went on to graduate from Temple University's Beasley School of Law in 1975. For five years, he defended the City of Philadelphia as an attorney with the City Solicitor's Office. It was here that he garnered the knowledge and expertise in civil litigation, which helped jump-start his legal career. In 1980, Mr. Vosbikian opened his own law firm, focusing primarily on personal injury. During the mid 1980's, a transition took place from personal injury to immigration law.

Mr. Vosbikian is particularly regarded among his colleagues and many past clients for his reputation in taking on the most challenging immigration cases. These include removal proceedings before the immigration court, criminal matters, motions to reopen existing deportation orders, ICE detainers and bond hearings, waiver applications for fraud and misrepresentation and appeals to the Board of Immigration Appeals and Federal Courts.

Mr. Vosbikian has earned a reputation for maintaining close client contact as well as keeping organized and responsive to a heavy caseload. Mr. Vosbikian is particularly adept at navigating through the administrative and legal process in achieving successful client results.

"I believe in developing a case plan and understanding the client's goals and objectives at the outset of representation. It is important not only to focus on the case, but to be aware of the client's circumstances and concerns. I also believe in being accessible and working directly with the client, using a hands-on approach."

In the past ten years Mr. Vosbikian has expanded his immigration law practice, opening offices in Atlantic City, Trenton, and Newark. Recently, he partnered with his son Steven S. Vosbikian in 2011, and together they founded Vosbikian & Vosbikian, L.L.C.

Stopping deportation order
Mr.Vosbikian is very knowledgeable. He ensures that he does the best job possible. If it was not for him and his good skills I would have gotten deported. Instead, my deportation order was terminated and I am able to enjoy my freedom here in the US with my children and family. I thank him very much, he is exceptional:-)

The Best immigration lawyer in NJ
Steven is a very Professional and Reliable immigration lawyer. He helped me with an adjustment of my status and to get Permanent Residency. Originally my husband contacted many attorneys and they even could not answer some basic questions on the phone! But Steven Vosbikian gained our trust from the first phone conversation! Steven was extremely attentive and responsive. He knew exactly what to do step by step and explained everything in detail! Any dealing with the immigration involves tons of paperwork, deadlines and general knowledge of how they process things. I am so happy with the way Steven handled my case ! It seems like the whole thing only took a few months! No delays, no waiting, no redoing things! and Steven made sure we were prepared for our interview! He was there to answer all our legal questions or just to assure me that things were in order. Steven handled my case in a way I hardly had to think about anything and for a very fair fee. He took care of everything, always checking-in with us, explaining things in a clear and easy way . Above all that, he is a really nice person and very supportive! He made sure my process was quick and easy! We would definitely recommend Stevens services.

Excellent lawyer
Mr. Steven Vosbikian Sr. was a beacon of hope to me at a time when my options appeared limited and the likelihood of a satisfactory resolution seemed nigh on impossible. Not only he was able to defend me from an unjust situation, his calm and empathetic demeanor offered emotional succor. I am eternally grateful for his services and highly recommend Mr. Vosbikian's law firm without reservation.

Very helpful!
Working with Steve on our immigration case made the process so straightforward and easy. Every time we needed to do anything, he gave us a clear list of everything we would need to prepare and would promptly answer any random questions via email or phone call. Despite being busy with other cases, I never felt that he wasn't giving our case his full attention when it was needed. Thank you, Steve!

An honorable, sincere & caring gentleman who conducts his profession with admirable integrity, precision & professionalism.
I met Mr. Vosbikian in 2001 after being denied by INS for a family petition. It was traumatic for my household. What followed was years of exhausting, stressful and emotional court appearances. There were occasions in which I no longer had the stamina or ability to see light at the end of the tunnel. However, it was due to Mr. Vosbikian's determinacy, dedication and commitment which motivated me to remain positive and patient. During times of pain & hopelessness or times of joy.... he was always a pillar of support. The possession of such a trait or genuine character is difficult to find in humanity! After years of commitment and hard work on my case I am delighted and ecstatic to reveal that the case was finally resolved with great success. Mr. Vosbikian's undying efforts will never be forgotten by me or my family and because of him, our world has forever changed.

The best immigration attorney, ever
I had a very complicated case. Starting from my removal proceedings to Naturalization. I had 4 attorneys before Mr Vosbikian, who could not understand or comprehend my case. Then I was referred to Mr. Vosbikian by a friend, and he helped me though all my difficulties in the naturalization process. In my removal proceedings, Mr Vosbikian, presented my case in a solid manner in front if immigration judge and with his arguments, the case was dismissed in first hearing. Then my I130 which was jointly filed with my x-wife was in question, he suggested to file a new application, which was approved by USCIS. After crossing these 2 major hurdles, Mr Vosbikian Filed N336, appeal for N400, and my interview was taken again, which must have lasted 3-4 hours. It looked like USCIS put me under microscope, and did extensive investigation. 9 months later, I got the oath date. Before I hired Mr Vosbikian, I filed my first N400 in 2007. From 2007 to 2017, during 10 years, I went through removal proceedings, an un-pleasant divorce, my xwife's letter to immigration, police case in another country to Refiling I130 and refiling N400 3 times and appeal N336 3 times. It was a long and hard period. I don't think any other attorney could handle my difficult case. I just became US citizen 2 days ago, and all the credit goes to Mr. Vosbikian. He is very knowledgeable, and understands the case fully, before suggesting a course of action. If you have a difficult or easy case, make an appointment for consultation and you will see for yourself, in your first meeting that he is the best Immigration attorney, you would ever talk to. Thank you Mr. Vosbikian for all your help, dedication and hard work to get me out of trouble and help me become a US Citizen.

Very smooth process
After reading a tons of reviews here in Avvo and in internet forums for immigration matters, we decided to hire Mr. Steven Vosbikian to adjust the status of my wife. And we did an excellent choice!! We were more than satisfied with the services that Mr. Vosbikian and his team provided us. He was extremely helpful, answered all of our questions before and after we actually hired him, prepared us for our interview and successfully received her GC in less than 6 months. We will definitely look forward for further assistance by Mr. Vosbikian in removing the conditions on the card.

More than jusdt an Attorney
My wife and I successfully received our green cards in less than 5 months after our attorney Steven Vosbikian filed our applications. After the careful review of our cases, Mr. Vosbikian efficiently prepared two packages for us and, at the same time, provided his moral support to reassure us in this understandably stressful waiting period for our case's approval. He always responded our emails and phone calls promptly and patiently. It was truly a very pleasant experience for us to work with him during the whole process. Simply put, Mr. Vosbikian efficiently and enthusiastically handled our cases, and with a reasonable fee. We are more than happy to recommend him to anyone who needs a immigration attorney.

The Plato of Immigration Law
It was not that long ago I submitted my application to have my conditional permanent resident status removed. A few months later I received a letter from the uncis saying they needed additional proof that my marriage was in "good faith." My wife suggested we should seek legal council from another immigration attorney as the lawyer we initially used was never available to answer any of our questions. A friend referred us to the law office of one Steven Vosbikian. We didn't know what to expect at first, but he was very warm and welcoming. After we explained the circumstances of my case, and then hearing Mr Vosbikian responses, my wife and I decided instantly to retain his services. Over the next few weeks he worked closely with us; he suggested we get signed affidavits from family and friends, we even wrote separate affidavits, and gathered other legal and binding documents. He was never too busy for his clients, and no matter the questions (and we had plenty), he gave us the correct answers; he's brilliant and litigious on all matters regarding immigration law and then some. All our documents to be submitted were organized, up to date, and professional in their apperance. He left no stone unturned. It was these subtle things and his seemingly natural confidence that gave us the reassurance that everything would be alright. Things did turn out wonderfully, as I received my permanent resident status a month ago. Everything seemed so easy in retrospect, but at that time my wife and myself were quite worried; Steven really came through for us and it's a fine testament that knowledge and experience trumps everything else (no pun intended). My wife speaks rather fondly of Mr Vosbikian, and remark how we wasted money on the previous lawyer who was for all intent and purpose-- useless. Thanks again Steven for helping us when we needed it the most. It's a pleasure to give my honest review of such a savant individual, and I do recommend Mr Steven Vosbikian to anyone in need of a great, kind and competent immigration attorney. Cheers!

Steve is a very nice person and lawyer, I thought my husband's case would be very complicated but instead steve helped us understand and he explained every detail..and on the day of the interview he was right there, and once it was approved steve was just as happy as we were! He takes the time out to get to know you and makes sure things go right the first time, also his fees aren't outrageous they are reasonable..he gives you a run down AND the payment plan that he has is amazingly reasonable!! over all best experience i've ever had with a attorney!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Am just elated to say that am so grateful for the very professional work that Steve did for me. This was a nerve wrecking process just ask any immigrant going through the AOS process. Steve's voice, demeanor and calmness was so reassuring in the midst of our apparent nervousness because he knew what he was doing and that's what every immigrant needs at that particular time, a strong assurance that it's okay, it's gonna be done and that's what he exactly did. Am just perpetually grateful to him for guiding us through the Adjustment of Status process and will recommend him to any immigrant because he is just the kind of attorney needed especially to exude the calmness needed while doing the rigorous professional work.
