    Full Service Immigration Attorney

    15 years, 1,500 cases

Each year I represent more than 100 couples with Marriage Adjustment of Status, Marriage Consular Processing, and K-1 Fiancé cases.

For those facing issues in cases they filed without a lawyer or with another lawyer, I regulary handle responding to Notices of Intent to Deny (NOIDs), BIA Appeals, and N-336 Naturalization Hearing Requests. 

I am a current American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) Liaison to the Cincinnati USCIS Field Office.

Most of my cases are handled for a flat fee that covers all of my legal work on your case. This way you can know that you can talk to me as much as you need to throughout your case. No hidden fees or charges, just effective, affordable immigration legal advice.

Best lawyer
Handles my case very effectively. Could have taken me on an expensive ride but was very honest and fair in his billing and did everything he could to avoid the costly route. Very personable and actually listens to his client.

Thank you Chris Pogue
Chris Pogue was amazing with his help for my wife as she applied for an immigrant visa. He responded immediately and thoroughly to all of our questions. His efforts were incredible given the fact that immigrant visa laws were changing during the process of our application. My wife will soon be arriving permanently from Brazil. This would not have been possible without his tireless effort.

Excellent Immigration lawyer.
My wife and I didn't know where to begin on helping her to apply for her green card. We found Christopher and couldn't be more satisfied with the results. He was honest, very professional, and easy to talk to. He was straightforward with his fees and quick to respond to emails and or calls. He helped us gather everything we would need to present a strong case. I would highly recommend him for your all immigration needs. Thanks Christoper for a fine job!

Extremely Helpful
We are so grateful to have found Christopher Pogue after speaking with over 20 other attorneys. My husband and I had a very complicated immigration case and Christopher was extremely helpful throughout the entire long process. He did extensive research, was very knowledgeable, and was always ready with response for everything USCIS threw at us. The immigration process and waiting game was very stressful and strenuous on our relationship. We were very fortunate that Christopher was always available for phone conversation or very quick to respond to an email whenever we had a question. He constantly reassured us about our case, explained things so we could understand, and was always honest and upfront with us. We cannot say enough good things about Christopher. We truly highly recommend him for any immigration case, especially the tougher ones. Thank you so much Christopher, we could not have got through this without you.

Excellent immigration and naturalization lawyer
Mr. Christopher Pogue is one of the best immigration lawyer that we have worked with. He has been very generous. Me n my wife were just relaxed during the whole process of my wife's immigration case. He also handled my naturalization case. He always gave us the clear picture ahead and the time frames that he used to give us were bang on. He was always available to meet, respond and answer any type of query regarding our immigration process. He used to prepare us and guide us well ahead of time. He is very friendly in nature which made us complete stress free during the whole process. Thank you so much Mr. Christopher for handling our case. We highly recommend to persons having any query regarding immigration or naturalization process should contact him up. All the best Christopher for your future endeavours.

Exellent Immigration Attorney
Mr. Christopher Pogue is an awesome immigration attorney. He is very knowledgeable about the workings of the USCIS; he was very responsive, trustworthy and kept my wife and I informed when I requested his services in March of 2012, for the change of status of my wife as a Permanent Resident of the US. We did not know the details of the requirements and the expectations of the USCIS. After I explained our objectives to Mr. Pogue, he enthusiastically and patiently explained and defined all the information, requirements and expectations of the USCIS for our objective. Mr. Pogue thoroughly prepared all the required USCIS forms and arranged all the supporting submissions from my wife and I, and then, it a smooth sailing from there on. He kept us informed constantly for the duration of the process; within months my wife received her Green Card in the mail. Thanks to Christopher, he made it easy for us. We cannot thank him enough. My wife and I highly recommend Mr. Christopher Pogue for any persons with any transactions with the US Citizenship and Immigration service. He's the best!

Excellent and Friendly Services
We werent sure what we needed to do, we found Mr Pogue on Yahoo website and the first thing that caught our attention was the flat fee services. But after talking with him that first day we knew he was the one. He was so friendly and helpful never held nothing back. Our friend is now out on bail thanks to Mr Pogue. I would recommend him to anyone that is dealing with immigrations. He is straight foward, friendly, honest and always response to your questions without any hesitations. If you need a good attorney he is the man!!! Thank You!

a very good Immigration Lawyer
My wife and I were in need of a Immigration Lawyer and found the right one in Christopher Pogue. He was very nice and kind and helped us thru the Green Card process. He was there when my wife had her Immigration Review Appointment and the whole process went real smooth. He even sent us a "Congratulations" e-mail and attached the necessary form for when we need to update in 2 years. He was very thural and helped us and we would recommend him to anybody needing Immigration help.

So glad we had Christopher's help!
We weren't sure we wanted to hire a lawyer at first to handle my immigration from Canada to the US - but after our first meeting with Christopher, there wasn't any doubt. We are so glad he was there to help us with all the forms and formalities! The process went so smoothly we still can't believe it. We had lots of questions, and if he didn't know - he found out. Thanks Chris, you lifted a huge worry off of us and made the transition so easy!

Very disappointing
He simply didn't show up for the interview. We called him until 10 minutes prior the interview time. After the interview, he said he had problems with Google calendar. To be fair, he did gave me money back for not showing up, but I needed him to be there. This was the most important. It was very disappointing.
