Practice areas

A former immigration attorney for the government, I am now in private practice using my extensive knowledge of the immigration law to benefit my clients. I have significant experience in various areas of immigration law including visas, green cards, removal proceedings, employer sanctions cases, and citizenship.  Having prosecuted immigration cases for the government for almost 4 years, I am familiar with not only the numerous pitfalls of complicated immigration cases, but also the policies that govern the immigration process. 

 

When I am not in the office, I enjoy playing ice hockey, running, and spending time with my husband and dogs.

Brilliant!
Rebekah handled our immigration cases (K-1 Visa/Adjustment of Status/LPR). The handling our cases by her and her team has been invaluable from consultation to recently being granted permanent residency. To see how happy they are after you've been successful in your cases is a sign of a firm who really cares about their clients. We worked with Attorney Grafton for the last few years who is extremely knowledgeable. She has a natural ability to make you feel at ease throughout process and make you feel more confident. For anyone going through the stresses of immigration matters, I can't recommend enough how great it is to have the backing of an experienced attorney like Rebekah! I would highly recommend Rebekah and the Fay Grafton Nunez team to anyone who is looking for a trusted partner in immigration law.

Helpful and detail oriented
Rebekah and her team were very helpful to me and my wife for filing permanent residency based on marriage. They answered a lot of the questions I had and gave us instructions and updates every step of the way. I would definitely recommend Fay and Grafton for immigration services.

Professional, Efficient & Competent!
My husband and I used Ms. Grafton as our immigration lawyer and we could not be happier with the level of service that both Rebekah and Jonathan provided to us! Starting with the initial advice, continuing with the support received all throughout the process and culminating with obtaining my green card in less than 3 months, everything went so smoothly, we had our hands held when we needed it, we were treated with respect and professionalism. Even after the process ended, we still received advice from Rebekah and Jonathan on the next steps (2 years from now)! Highly recommend the Fay & Grafton Lawyers, particularly Ms. Grafton!

Excellent Immigration Lawyer.
Rebekah Grafton did an outstanding job handling my citizenship case. I was worried about the fact that I spent too much time overseas and that would impact my application negatively. So it took me a while to decide how to proceed. I decided to hire Rebekah after our first meeting. I was very impressed with her knowledge and I really loved the way she explained things to me. When I met with her, I explained to her my concerns and she immediately put my mind at ease. She told me that she successfully handled cases more complicated than mine. What I really love about her is the fact that she made me feel very comfortable during the whole process. It took about four month to get to the citizenship interview, which went beautifully! Now I am waiting for the oath ceremony, which is in a couple of weeks. So, many thanks to Rebekah! She is a wonderful immigration lawyer!

Supportive & Wonderful
My husband and I are incredibly thankful for Rebekah Grafton and her team. Her support, professionalism, compassion and expertise throughout the process of adjusting my status and obtaining permanent residence has exceeded our expectations. The immigration process can be very stressful and complex, especially if you are doing it on your own. Having Ms. Grafton represent us allowed us to navigate this with much comfort in knowing that our case was in good hands and that we were doing everything we can to make the process as seamless as possible. I was particularly impressed by her willingness to answer all my detailed questions and concerns and her extensive knowledge about USCIS/Immigration processes. We will definitely be turning to her again for further counsel and assistance with future immigration processes. Thankyou, Rebekah, for helping us through this. You are the best!!

Outstanding Immigration Attorney & Staff
I retained Ms. Grafton on behalf of close relatives. Over 2+ years Rebekah and her staff (especially Jonathan) went above and beyond to secure the desired adjustment of status and green card for my family member. Her advice and document preparation were spot-on in every instance. For a knowledgeable, responsive and results-focused immigration attorney, you cannot do better. Her fees were fair and transparent. I recommend her without reservation.

A very very great immigration lawyer --Beyond expectations--
We hired Mrs. Rebekah as my lawyer in my case that took longer and more RFE, the day she took care of my case, we got the answer back from USCIS in just few weeks, and we are looking forward for your amazing and professional work with my naturalization too. Well and quick responses, professional and caring to us, I can't be more satisfied than that, and if any body ask me for a lawyer, the only one that I can suggest is Rebekah Grafton, because I know she can handle it. My wife and I are thrilled and we can't be more happier than that.

Fantastic immigration attorney ... A true blessing for our family
Bekki was fantastic to work with. My husband and I were issued an RFE while applying to lift his conditional status and Bekki took one look at what we originally sent to USCIS and immediately told us what we needed to do. We gathered the documents she suggested and within 30 days of sending the RFE packet in to USCIS we got the letter in the mail saying that my husbands conditional status had been lifted! We are going to have her help us with his naturalization too! She's very thorough and caring. She was responsive and efficient. I cannot say enough good things! She deserves more than a 5 star review; she deserves 500! I whole heartedly recommend Bekki! Working with her was an honor and we are so grateful for all she has done to help us!!!!

Thorough and compassionate service
Rebekah Grafton has provided services for my family that have far exceeded our expectations. She spent more than our allotted amount of time trying to find options for us when our prior plan fell through. It is an emotional issue, and she has been very compassionate throughout the process. She also took time to ensure that my hearing-impaired relative understood everything that was discussed. She has laid out a plan for prompt follow up on our concerns, and we look forward to continuing to work with her in the future.

Very knowledgeable, positive and pleasure to work with!
I retained Rebekah Grafton to represent my family member for helping him get his citizenship. Just prior to receiving his citizenship, he was charged with one felony and one misdemeanor. This turn of events would have jeopardized his gaining citizenship without professional counsel. Rebecca was retained to help us with this issue. She worked closely with our defense attorneys to prepare a defense for his citizenship. Also she put together a history of the charges (which were dismissed) with affidavits and explanations on the extenuating circumstances. This dossier was sent to the immigration authorities prior to the citizenship ceremony. The document she created for immigration was very professional and undoubtably was the reason for his citizenship approval.  Overall, Rebecca was a pleasure to work as she was very patient with my concerns and always displayed a very positive attitude. She is great lawyer and person. I would highly recommend her.

Honest and knowledgeable attorney.
Rebekah was very honest from the beginning and laid out all the possible outcomes and routes that my family could take regarding their immigration case. That was something I appreciated a lot and find missing with other immigration attorneys. I think she handled the job well and gave me the security that what we were doing would be best given the current circumstances. Yet, she made clear that the final decision was completely ours. La recomiendo a todos!
