Speaking the Language of Immigration. Call Today
My experience representing clients began in 2009, when I began working as a student attorney in the University of Arkansas School of Law Immigration Clinic. While there, I worked under the supervision of a licensed immigration attorney and was able to work with clients on a variety of cases, including removal defense, asylum, I-751 petitions, and appeals to the BIA.
I graduated from law school in May 2010 and was admitted to practice law before the Supreme Court of Arkansas in September 2010. That same month, I began working with the law firm of Matthews, Campbell, Rhoads, McClure & Thompson, P.A. in Rogers, Arkansas. Since then, my focus has been almost exclusively on immigration matters.
In February 2012, I launched my own firm, Bogart Immigration Law, LLC, based in the Kansas City Metro area and focusing on all areas of immigration law. In September 2014, I joined Petty & Associates, PLLC in Dallas, TX. While in Dallas, I helped manage the firm's marketing and expansion into new markets while my practice focused primarily on immigration-related litigation.
As part of the firm's expansion, I returned to Northwest Arkansas in October 2015 to open an office for Petty & Associates, PLLC, doing business as Arkansas Immigration Associates. In September 2016, I joined Joyce Law Firm in Fayetteville where I managed the firm's immigration practice and marketing strategy.
On New Year's Day 2018, I re-launched my own firm, Bogart Immigration, PLLC, focusing most of my time on removal defense and other immigration-related litigation and family unification. Over the course of 2018, we added a humanitarian and naturalization practice group. Beginning in January 2019, we added criminal defense and business & investor immigration practice groups. In total, we have four attorneys, five paralegals, and additional support staff.
Within immigration law, I focus my practice on removal defense, appeals, federal immigration litigation, and family unification, particularly consular processing and adjustment of status. I love being in Northwest Arkansas and helping out in any way I can.
