Attorney Alexander J. Eiffe is head of the Immigration Law Practice Group at A.G. Linett & Associates. Alexander has been almost exclusively practicing immigration law in North Carolina since 2012 and has been a licensed attorney since 2010. Alexander is licensed to practice law in states of North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey as well as the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey, the Middle District of North Carolina, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, and the U.S. Supreme Court.

Alexander was adopted from Bogota, Colombia and grew up in the triad area of North Carolina. He now lives in Greensboro with his wife Aziza, their son, and their two dogs Midas (Boxer/Pitt Bull mix) and Roxana (Labrador/Great Dane mix). Alexander attended UNC Chapel Hill where he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy and he earned his Juris Doctorate from the University of Villanova School of Law. He remains involved in his community through various professional organizations and he has spoken: on the radio, to student & parent groups, at community events and to local officials/agencies about various immigration topics. If you or an organization you are involved with would be interested in attorney Eiffe discussing or presenting on an immigration topic to your group, please contact our office.

Attorney Eiffe’s practice spans all areas of immigration law including family based immigration, employment based immigration, and removal defense. He is an experienced attorney who has personally handled cases for citizen/nationals of over 50 different countries. Alexander is a firm believer that clients and potential clients deserve a true and non-sugar-coated assessment of their cases. In the current political climate and in the midst of ongoing and very public debate about immigration, people absolutely need to talk to an attorney to discuss their options.

ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement), have ramped up activity in the Carolinas and around the U.S. in recent months and practicing immigration law before the immigration court or before USCIS (“U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services”) has seen fundamental shifts in the past few years. Our office does not expect the constant shifting of the legal landscape to slow down or stop anytime soon. Attorney Alexander J. Eiffe and his team have the experience and knowledge to help our clients navigate the shifting seas of immigration. Please call to schedule a consultation today!

Highly recommend!
Alex and his firm Linett and Associates were fantastic to work with in managing all activities related to the application for US residency for my English mother. There were several challenges to navigate through that Alex managed excellently and always kept me fully informed regarding options and next steps. He was always highly responsive to any queries and explained everything very clearly. He was able to lead us through to a positive outcome and I couldn’t be more pleased and grateful. I highly recommend Alex and his firm.

Thank you Alex!
I hired Alex to help me with an application that has been pending for years. During our meeting he explained in a very detailed manner what I was to do to expedite the process and he also told me I was eligible for citizenship and that I should pursue it. I hired him shortly after and I was pleased with his professionalism, he explains everything in detail and provide assistance anytime I needed it. Thanks to Alex (and Adriana) I was able to get the pending application approved and the naturalization in less than a year.

The Best Immigrant Lawyer!
I highly recommend Alex J. Eiffe to work with you when it comes to your Immigration process. We started applying to immigrate to the US from Kenya back in August 2018. I honestly didn’t know that hiring a lawyer would greatly help and speed up the process. Alex was recommended by my husbands’ employer and we got our paperwork ready which included getting original copies, official paper work filled up and a continuous process of sending documents from Kenya to the US. Alex advised, prepared documents the way it was needed for us to eventually have a green light that we were ready for an interview with the US Embassy in Nairobi. In October 2019, we eventually had our interviews which went very well and we got our visas. I owe the process going well to Alex. I also would like to stress that being honest in the application process counts a lot. We provided legit documents, legit dates and any other documents needs to file for the petition. We landed in the US in October 2019, got our green cards after a few months and eventually received our Social Security Numbers. IF you’re looking forward to immigrate to the US from Kenya, I highly recommend contacting Alex and let home take you through the legal process of petitioning for your spouse. He is very knowledgeable, professional at the same time has very friendly personality. Thank you so much Alex and your team for a job well done!
