Robert F. Mirque Jr. is an attorney practicing U.S. immigration law in Grand Rapids, Michigan. For over 28 years, Mr. Mirque has helped businesses, individuals, and families obtain legal status in the United States. The firm proudly calls itself a “value-driven” law office meaning that we want to make sure that the client gets the most out of every dollar spent. This is done in many ways during our representation but, it starts with rates that are very reasonable; payment plans available to our clients; acceptance of major credit cards; and an office is conveniently located downtown with ample free parking.

Mr. Mirque was admitted to practice law in 1992. Prior to seeing any clients, he clerked for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Western District of Michigan and the Eastern District of Michigan. From there, he clerked with the Hon. Horace W. Gilmore, United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan. After working for the court, Mr. Mirque joined a large law firm where he represented both individuals and businesses in immigration matters.

In 2000, Mr. Mirque left the firm to establish his own firm. Mirque Law was created to provide the immigration client with “a better legal experience”. In doing so, the firm adopted a “client centered” approach to handling cases. In a nutshell, our mission is based on the fact that without clients it doesn’t matter how much mahogany and marble is in the lobby and unless we truly focus on the client, we simply won’t be around for very long. Our office exists wholly for the benefit of the client and not the other way around. It is sad that there are some lawyers who believe that clients will continue come to them no matter how they are treated. For those lawyers, the client is simply a case number. We believe in something different – we believe that a client is why we exist.

Mirque Law focuses it practice in the following areas:

  • Visas and Permanent Residency Fiances and Spouses
  • Waivers and Inadmissibility Issues
  • Permanent Residency through Employment
  • H1-B Visas
  • Citizenship and Naturalization
  • Intra-Company Transfers of Employee
  • Federal Litigation and Appeals
  •  Asylum
  • Religious Worker Visas
  • Specialty Visas
  • Appeals

If you have an immigration matter and you wish to speak with me, call me at for a free Immigration Status Strategy Meeting where we will review your issues and outline a way to achieve your goal. Or, go to our website at for more information.

We work very hard to provide every client with a better legal experience.

The BEST immigration lawyer in Michigan
You can't find a more patient, knowledgeable and informative immigration lawyer. Mr. Mirque thought out of the box and helped where many other lawyers could not. He had expertise in the tedious immigration visas that only caused me headaches before. In less than a week having consulted with him, my husband was approved for a visa. Mr. Mirque is definitely on your side and can navigate the visa process from stat to finish. Whether it is is B2, I130, green card or any other immigration needs for your loved family member to come to the USA.... he is your immigration lawyer. HIGHLY recommended!

An excellent lawyer and a lovely person!
I was looking for a competent and knowledgable lawyer to help me put together the adjustment of status (green card) application for my husband, and I am so glad that I found Robert Mirque! He clearly has extensive experience in immigration law and knows the ins and outs of all of the many forms that one has to file in this confusing process! We just had one consultation so far, but I am looking forward to working with him going forward. He was very generous with his time and answered all of my questions in an extremely thorough manner. He patiently explained to me the background and logic behind the various steps that we will be working through, so that I could have a strong understanding of how to navigate the process. He helped me to understand what parts of the application matter most so I know where to focus my time and energy. He also warned me regarding what to watch out for down the line so I know what to think about in advance. I feel very confidant that Robert Marque will help us to make this process as smooth and comprehensible as possible.

I-751 request for evidence help
Robert is a fantastic immigration lawyer. We asked him to help us when we received a request for evidence regarding our I-751 petition to Remove Conditions of Residence. This was a bit stressful, but Robert was great at explaining everything that we needed to collect and how to put it all together properly for submission. He was very kind and is very knowledgeable. My husband and I highly recommend him!

Strength, Passion and Patience
Rob did an excellent job as my attorney during a divorce case. He was extremely patient, quick to respond to messages, thorough, detailed, kind and compassionate. We dealt with many twists and turns throughout the case, and he held it together very well. I never felt alone in this journey; instead, I felt like I had a partner guiding me the entire time. He took time to answer all my questions, talk with me after office hours if needed, and even took time on Sunday to prepare me for trial. His dedication and attention to detail was greatly appreciated, especially during a case that took much longer than anyone anticipated. Rob has become a trusted confidant and friend over the last couple of years, and for that I am very grateful. I would highly recommend Rob to anyone who needs a family law attorney.

Deportation Case
I would like to thank Mr. Mirque for an excellent job he did. He defended my brother who was on the verge of being deported. The hard work and dedication he put into this case is unparalleled. If you're looking for someone who will truly care and fight for you - he is your guy !

Excellent, Character
I have know Robert for the past 2 years. I have the upmost confidence in referring him to family and or business clients who are in need of a family law attorney. His approach is straight forward. He is honest and has a passion for helping others handle delicate situations during the most difficult times in their lives. Roberts approach to family law is efficient and effective but most of all affordable. Should you find yourself in a difficult situation, give Robert a call he will be there for you!

referrable lawyer
Robert helped a friend of mine with a difficult family decision. He gave my friend advice when another attorney wanted $5000.00 before he would do anything. Robert may not have made money in this instant but he earned the trust of my family and the trust of my friends family. He cares about people as much as he cares about the law. I highly recommend him.

Rob did an excellent job of keeping me up to date on all procedures, documents, and court appointments. He was very caring and made me feel comfortable while dealing with a very uncomfortable situation in my life.

A great choice, and a thoroughly nice man!
Robert Mirque was the lawyer my wife and I chose to help us through the minefield of immigration into the USA. I have a minor drug-related criminal record, and I was applying for a marriage-based Adjustment of Status (I-485), an Employment Authorization Document (I-765/766) and a Waiver of Grounds of Inadmissibility (I-601). Robert explained everything to us very thoroughly and was reassuring and knowledgeable throughout. He was there to answer any questions we had, and even visited us at our home on a Sunday, which is almost an hour away from his offices! He also offered to join us when we went for our Adjustment of Status interview with the USCIS, which was a 6 hour round trip and a whole lot of waiting around. He ensured that we had all our applications filed on time, and that every i was dotted and every t crossed. Robert projected a relaxed, confident demeanor from start to finish, and this helped us a great deal with our own confidence levels In short, we would not hesitate to recommend the law offices of Robert F. Mirque Jr. He did a fantastic job for us and he would do the same for you too.

DO NOT USE-NEVER APPLIED FOR CITIZENSHIP
Rob supposedly applied for my husband’s US citizenship 4 years ago and we are still waiting. Have gotten no response except for when we requested a copy of his file he gave us a bill for $3,000 for back charges and another $3,000 bill for copy charges before he would give us the file. The file didn’t include a receipt number which you need to check on your application. He won’t return calls, emails, texts, notes, and is never in his “office”. This has now set our family back 4 years & caused a TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF STRESS FOR EVERYONE including jeopardizing my husbands job on multiple occasions. He won’t even respond to our new immigration lawyer who has sent letters, called etc. Why would you do this to our family?????? There is no sign of any application in the USCIS system. Also when my husband tried to renew his green card which was sent to our old address and thrown out by the new owner, Rob told him to reapply not use the I-90 form for lost or stolen cards so they denied that and he has to reapply for that as well. Mistakes, horrible communication, and treated my family like he couldn’t be bothered. I don’t understand how he doesn’t have more bad reviews, but I have seen the others online as well, and their story is very similar to ours. We have had enough, we will have to resort to solving this legally.

Couldn't Get 5 Minutes into a Consultation
My husband and I were looking for an immigration attorney and after requesting a consultation call via email without reply, I figured I would call and set up a time. To his credit, Mr. Mirque was willing to talk to me immediately, but it went downhill from there and quickly. Naturally, my husband and I have been researching our immigration options and have been confused. I had hoped Mr. Mirque would help us understand the process. Instead, I got a cold response and the implication that I wasn't sincere—simply because I had done my own research. We weren't looking for Immigration Google, Mr. Mirque. We did honestly want some legal advice, and we were willing to pay. But what good is a consultation, if you treat your client as if they trying to take advantage of you only 3 minutes in?
