    Our practice concentrates on immigration law including removal defense, asylum, cancellation of removal, family and business immigration, various visas and petitions, citizenship and naturalization. We have an outstanding success record representing and defending our clients. In addition to handling cases before immigration courts throughout the US, we also represent clients before appellate courts including Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) and Federal Courts for the Second and Fourth Circuit

    1,250 cases

My name is Nataliya Gavlin and I am the founder of Gavlin & Associates, P.C. At our firm, we provide all our clients with the experienced, dedicated, and personal representation for a wide array of immigration issues. When you become a client of our firm, we are your dedicated advocates, pledging our full support to your every step of the way until your situation is resolved. No matter what legal issue you encounter, we vow to do our best to solve it as quickly and successfully as possible. We understand that immigration issues are extremely important to a person's life and happiness, therefore, we work extremely hard on making sure your immigration dreams are achieved, your family unity is established and your human rights are protected. I work with all of my clients from the beginning of the case to its successful end, and handle most of the work personally, with an amazing assistance of my legal staff. In my firm you can be sure that all your questions and concerns will be timely answered and addressed by attorneys who know you and care about your issues. I have an extensive experience of handling immigration matters before the Immigrations Courts throughout the United States, USCIS, Board of Immigration Appeals, and Federal Courts.

 

I am an immigrant from Ukraine and as such I am very sensitive to all the issues my clients face in this country. I believe that this country is very rich culturally because of the constant influx of new immigrants from around the word- those who come here to escape violence or persecution, seek better future for themselves and their families, or  find better job opportunities.

 

I love meeting new people from other countries, learning about their life and culture and being able to help them achieve their "American Dream" starting at their immigration status. Successfully handling hundreds of cases for my clients, I feel rewarded and fulfilled. I know exactly what it means for someone who does not have a legal status to finally get it, for someone who has been separated from their family for a long time to finally reunite, or  for someone who has been persecuted and harmed in their country to finally find protection in the United States.

 

I handle all of my clients cases with outmost care and dedication, being there every step of the way to guide, assist and instruct my clients to ensure best results.

 

I am an active member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA). I also participate in a pro bono program with the Immigration Equality, a non profit organization for the LGBT community.

Nataliya Gavlin - a lawyer from God. Наталья Гавлин - Адвокат от Бога.
До встречи с Натальей, я пользовалась услугой другого адвоката, я не хочу говорить ничего плохого о том адвокате скажу только то что, он довёл моё дело до критического состояния и, я была вынуждена сменить адвоката. Я встретилась с Натальей по счастливой случайности за две недели до Интервью в Иммиграционной Службе (USCIS). За очень короткий срок она сделала то, чего не сделал мой предыдущий адвокат за три года. Благодаря профессионализму Натальи, благодаря её ответственности, напористости и любви к своей работе, мы с мужем благополучно прошли интервью в USCIS и сейчас мы ожидаем Грин карту. Наталья, Вы ЛУЧШАЯ в своей работе, спасибо Вам огромное!

The Real Deal!!!
I attempted to fill out my wife's immigration papers on my own but struggled so I searched Avvo.com and found Ms. Nataliya Gavlin with a number of great reviews. I took a chance and paid for Nataliya's reasonably priced immigration application package. Despite the current state of our government (2017-2019), we recently received a green card thanks to Nataliya filling out all our forms properly and provided us with support during our interview. Thank you once again Nataliya.

Highly recommend!
I've met Nataliya about four years ago, when I was looking for an attorney to hire. My case was extremely complicated, I was running out of time, I was desperate and I thought I had absolutely no chances to succeed in it. Then someone gave me Natalia’s business card and said that she will be able to help me. I was so impressed with her knowledge and her intelligence. During four long years of work Nataliya was always available for me and very supportive. I also would like to highlight excellent communication, analytical, and research skills that Natalia and associates have. I was so lucky working and winning with Nataliya and her associates and I would highly recommend her services to all!

She leads with her heart.
Nataliya heard of my case and circumstances and immediately contacted me personally to offer her services as my immigration lawyer. Her years of expertise and her unmistakable passion to serve those in need, made her my obvious choice. I am indebted to her.

All you can ever ask for in an attorney!
I met with Nataliya back in April 2016 to file for a fiancé visa to bring my now-wife Sonja to the US. My wife was granted the visa in October of that year and came the following month. We got married January 2017 and filed for her permanent residency the following month. Today, her and I had the interview, in which Nataliya accompanied us to as well which needless to say went great! Since the beginning of the process Nataliya did an amazing job in helping us understand what documents we would need and never was any of the paperwork that she filed for us during the K1 visa or Permanent Resident status process sent back to us because of any errors (which goes to show how perfect she is!). Sonja and I both are very appreciative & grateful for all that she’s done for us and will absolutely hire her and recommend her to friends for any other immigration cases we may have in the future. For anyone reading this review to find the right immigration attorney, thank you and look no further. Nataliya will meet and exceed expectations. She is a very genuine, hard working & ace attorney!

Natalia was extremely helpful and knowledgeable starting from the first second i walked into her office. We spoke about my asylum case and she was very understanding and compassionate. Mrs. Gavlin and her team always kept me updated on any changes in my case, and were always there for me whenever i had any questions. She did a superb job representing my case. I highly recommend her! I am forever grateful to her. Thank you!

Реальный специалист!
Обращался в компанию ГавлинЛоу для получения политического убежища. Я мог многое рассказать о своем деле, но в итоге акценты расставлял неправильно. Слава богу грамотная адвокатесса направила меня на нужный путь. Ждем теперь гринкарту! Спасибо Наташе!

Natalia Gavlin is amazing!
Natalia Gavlin is amazing. She is very passionate about what she does, caring, realistic, and honest. She's also a really kind person and makes you feel at ease; she always answers calls, emails, and even texts promptly. I contacted migration law on a holiday weekend and immediately got a response from Natalia. Her openness to improvement and willingness to provide as much help as possible makes her a great lawyer!
