    I take on special juvenile immigrant staus related guardianship cases in New York State.

    10 years, 1 case

Combining individual attention with flat fees for many types of immigration matters.


I concentrate on removal defense, appeals to the Board of Immigration Appeals, immigration related criminal defense, family immigration, adjustment of status, domestic and overseas immigrant waivers, domestic and overseas nonimmigrant waivers, asylum and related forms of relief (witholding of removal, deferral of removal, relief under the U.N.

I can conduct consultations in person, by phone, by email/chat, or via skype.


I can conduct client preparation and interviews in Spanish.


In addition to being licensed in NY,  I am admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of NY and the Second Circuit Court of Appeals.


Unlike many other immigration attorneys, I do not delegate any work to anyone.  


If you call my office, I will answer the phone. I will be the one responding to your emails and calling you back.


If anyone does work for you, from filling out a form to assembling your documents, it will be me.  My rates may be higher than some other immigration attorneys, but the time I devote to my clients is of greater quality and quantity than of high volume caseload firms.


As a member of AILA and a consistent participant in its online community, I can draw on the collective experience of thousands of other immigration attorneys as well as sharing my perspectives with my colleagues.


I am not in the business of providing my clients with sugar coated promises of favorable outcomes and assurances that there is nothing to be worried about. I let my clients know exactly where they stand and possible outcomes.


I spend much of my time listening to my clients. Aside from knowing the law, an attorney needs to know exactly what is going on with his/her clients. And that's what I do.

I was looking for immigration attorney in my area to apply for citizenship . I was asking around for long time got some names but felt I want to do my own research . I found Daniel Green on google . It was my gut feeling to hire him. I never regret it for a moment . He’s very honest , very knowledgeable ( worked with attorneys and they weren’t) My case had little twist and turn , Daniel did all the possible research to make my proses successful. And he did . We thought it will take maybe up to 18 months to get my naturalization. It took nine months. I had to hurry on my study which I found interesting to learn . He walked me through each and every step. He made it very easy for my .Give yourself a favor it’s lot of paperwork he will do it all .it’s worth every penny ! Thank you Daniel !

Knowledgeable, Persistent, and Devoted
Knowledgeable, Persistent, and Devoted I applied for asylum and consulted with Dan Green to help me prepare for my interview at the asylum office. Dan worked with me as a good professional of his job —he was very focused on my case, becoming quickly familiar with my situation. Dan was sympathetic and kind, and helped me through the preparation he determined I needed for the best chance for success at my interview. He researched and found an extraordinarily skilled translator to meet us at the asylum office. Dan accompanied me to the interview, which required that we board our first bus at 4:10 in the morning. Because of Dan’s calm presence and his support and encouragement, I was able to have success at the interview telling my story to a representative of the USCIS. Last week, I received a letter from USCIS informing me that my application for asylum had been approved. I would highly recommend Daniel Green . God Bless Dan Green, and God Bless America!

Outstanding immigration lawyer
I recently hired Daniel Green for my Naturalization filing and the interview. Since the uniqueness of my case, Daniel Green did extremely thorough research and informed me the process on every step of the process. For the interview, he was persistent to bring certain documents, which i had assumed not to be so important. But I listened to him and gathered all the documents that he thought to be critical. On the interview day, Daniel Green accompanied me and as the immigration officer started to ask me questions and require certain documents, I realized how well I had prepared, and I wanted to thank Daniel Green right there! Because of his hard work, I had a rather smooth interview after a couple of hard questions due to the uniqueness of my case. I have to admit if Daniel Green had not seated through the interview with me, there was no chance for me to pass that interview on that day! After I received the certificate of Naturalization on the same day, Daniel Green also went out of his way to help me apply for an US passport. Again, because of his persistence, I was able to receive my US passport on the next business day!! Daniel Green is very sincere, caring, and he is an outstanding solid immigration lawyer with a great personality. I highly recommend Daniel Green if you need a immigration lawyer. He is simply the best!!

Daniel Green Immigration Lawyer
Daniel Green handled my husbands naturalization process and my Green Card process. He is thorough, conscientious and efficient. In the jungle of paperwork it was great to have him to ask any question we might have. He would swiftly get back to us with answers and advice. I felt he genuinely cared. All in all a great and hard working lawyer and really nice guy.

Daniel was a very good Immigration attorney. With his help we were able to get through the immigration process within 7 Months, and had our Green Card Information within one week of our interview. Without his help we don't believe that the process would have been as efficient. Not to mention the prices were reasonable, compared to other attorneys that had quoted me a price.

deportation problem solved
Daniel Green was my father`s lawyer. My father was in jail for a crime and he helped me a lot in getting my father home one year earlier than he was senteced. My father was an alien in the U.S with no green card (he entered the country ilegaly from Mexico). Mr. Green fought with NY Dept. of Corection and Immigration Dept. until he got my father deported. He always kept me informed about the case, and I felt from the very begining that he is a man of his word, aldo I never met him face to face as I was talking to him from outside the US, in Romania

Very detailed and involved!
I hired Daniel Green in 2007 for my Green Card case. My case was a bit more complicated than a standard Green Card case and Daniel Green was very involved and detailed from the start. He was thorough and kept me informed and updated every step of the case. His attention to detailed paid off when we were in front of the immigration judge as well as during the interview. The amount of evidence he had prepared was more than the immigration officer and judge asked for which strongly worked in my favor. If you are looking for an immigration lawyer who is very involved and invested in your case and does not just turn it over to a paralegal, I would recommend hiring Daniel Green.

Excellent immigration attorney!
Dan was affordable, reliable, and competent. We had used a different lawyer and after tens of thousands of dollars wasted, we called Dan. He took care of our case in a matter of days at a fraction of what we had paid other lawyers! We would use Dan again if needed.
