Reggie Smith Law office is located in Summerland Key, FL. Serving the immigration community leaving in the Monroe County, Reggie Smith Law dedicates to providing personalized legal assistance to individuals and families with matters of immigration. I represent foreign nationals before the immigration authorities to pursue their legal status in the United States. I recognize and understand, first-hand, the urgent needs of my clients have for seeking immigrant visas, including visa as a battered spouse, child or parent as amended by the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).
I am a Brazilian licensed attorney since 1999. I came to the United States back in 2002. With no English, my career changed from Brazilian lawyer to a housekeeper, bank teller, customer service, assistant branch manager, and before attending law school, I've worked at the 16th Judicial Circuit as a Probate, Juvenile, and Mental Health case manager.
Hire an immigration attorney was essential to change my nonimmigrant status to a green card holder by marriage. After being a green card holder, I've decided to apply for citizenship on my own, and it was denied. What seemed to be simple, was not so simple after all. My English was minimal, and I was naive. I improved my English and learned the laws of this wonderful country. At the second time around, my Citizenship by naturalization was approved.
Learning a new language and the American culture was a real challenge. I never gave up. I pursued my dream of becoming a lawyer again, but at this time in the United States. Today, I am an Attorney at Law specializing in immigration laws. I am devoted to helping you to solve your legal problem. I am driven, personable, professional, and proactive. I speak English, Portuguese, and Spanish.
Prepared to Represent You
Successful representation requires a thorough understanding of the law and meticulous preparation. Beyond my academic credentials and legal experience, I invest in continuing legal education and training to ensure that my knowledge of state and federal law is current and accurate.
