Welcome to my Avvo page.  I started practicing law in 1989 and have focussed my practice exclusively on immigration law since 1993.  I really love getting to know my clients and also solving challenging and complicated cases (they call me "The Immigration Professor").  I am passionate about the fact that everyone deserves to be treated fairly and humanely and am not afraid to sue the federal government when they violate my client's rights.  My experience within the immigration field is quite diverse and includes deportation defense, complex business and investment based immigration, work visas (H-1B, E-2, L-1, J-1 and more), citizenship and more.  I try to teach my staff the various options they can bring to our clients and they are all hand picked for their knowledge and passion.  Please check out our firm website at ,

Great Attorney
After being frustrated by other attorneys that ignored my calls or claimed that my case was too difficult I found the Immigration Professor. The Immigration Professor and his team maintained a high level of professionalism while still being approachable. They patiently answered all my questions, no matter how small, making me feel comfortable and well-informed. Together I was able to successfully adjust my status. Thank you so much.

Immigration Case
My husband and I are so thankful for Lauren and Robert for helping us with our entire immigration case and now I’m happy to say we’ve finally been approved! If it wasn’t for Lauren and Robert I have no doubt we would still be completely lost in this confusing process so thank you so much again!

Very helpful
Robert was generous with his time and very helpful. What I appreciate most was his willingness to get on a video call at a time that worked for me given my busy schedule. I would definitely recommend him.

Highly Recommended -Vawa
Atty Robert Perkins and his team I should say “highly recommended” for any immigration cases. Mr Perkins and Lauren Gabbaian are wonderful people! They listen, take their time to answer your questions and they have lots of patience. They make sure you fully understand everything and all the answers are clear to you. I really appreciate their professionalism and the advices they gave me! The team made my cases moved forward without any bumps along the way. Atty Perkins is very knowledgeable, honest and detailed oriented. He treats you as a friend and not a client, I did not feel any stress when we had our conversations via zoom. I am in Las Vegas and He is in California. Distance was not a problem for him. Where ever you maybe who needs his help on immigration please don’t hesitate nor think twice. I and my kids are very grateful and happy for the results of my case but mostly because I have found that in these times it is very difficult to find a good lawyer like him. My green card was mailed without going to interview. I thank the Lord most of all for making this happen, he directed me to The Immigration Professor Atty Robert Perkins. Thank you again Atty Robert Perkins and your team! I will use your service again in the future for my citizenship.

Trustworthy and efficient lawyer
I highly recommend Robert Perkins and his staff to anyone in need of immigration help. Robert is an expert attorney and he guided me and my employer through the complicated process of work sponsorship for a green card. When he was done, he also completed the green card process for my son. Robert does his job with patience and compassion. I can’t thank him enough.

Perfect choice
Robert and his team were extremely generous with their time and knowledge right from the start - they helped us through our paper applications, all of our documents, and our many MANY questions about the immigration process. They proactively scheduled check ins with us to talk us through the next milestones in our case and what to expect as we received notices in the mail, and were always responsive and available if we had any lingering questions. I could not recommend him more enthusiastically. Thanks, Robert!

Excellent Attorney
I hired Robert to aid with my case where mid way through my 1751 my spouse abandoned me, no contact, no address. I was left to try and prove the marriage was real with no Divorce just a disappearance at this stage. And Robert was incredible. The attention to detail, no stone was left unturned and i was awarded my Green Card with marriage conditions removed despite no appearance from my wife with a single visit. Highly recommend!

My husbands’ return
When I contacted The Immigration Professor, I was going crazy.  My husband had been stuck in Honduras waiting for his visa for almost a year, even though he was supposed to be back after only a few weeks.  Our daughter was only four years old when he left, and I was left caring for her and my disabled ex-military father all by myself.  With The Immigration Professor, I was able to sue the government to get him back.  Lauren and Robert were very knowledgeable about the process and kept me up to date at every step.  Lauren was very responsive and sympathetic whenever I had a question or I was worried about anything. And even though my husband was in Honduras, Robert always made himself available to him as well. It was strange and wonderful having someone taking care of me through all of this.  And now I finally have my family back together. Robert and Lauren showed me a perfect balance of professionalism and genuine concern and compassion. Their attention to my needs and focus on the case never waivered. And now I finally have my family back together! My husband and I will forever be grateful to them both. I wish I had contacted them sooner

Great Immigration Lawyer
I am writing this as my endorsement for Robert Perkins and the Immigration Professor law firm. I am incredibly happy with the services they provided and hope that other people will use this firm and get the kind of respect and professionalism I received. I immigrated to the United States from China a few years ago. That move itself was extremely difficult… New language, new culture, and new marriage. Unfortunately, the marriage which was the basis of my immigration ended in divorce and I was terrified that I might be kicked out or deported from the United States. In the midst of my panic I had the great luck of stumbling upon Robert Perkins and his team of the at The immigration Professor. Robert and his staff were very reassuring that despite the divorce, I could keep my green card and certainly not get deported. The staff worked tirelessly putting together my application, statement and making sure that everything went well. I was able to get my permanent green card within six months of filing my case! So many people treat you with disrespect when you immigrate to United States and I am so pleased to report and recommend the respectful treatment I received from Robert and the team at the Law offices of the Immigration Professor.

Knowledgeable, Compassionate, and Thorough...
I first hired Robert Perkins, the Immigration Professor, several years ago to obtain my O-1 visa, so that I may continue with my career in the performing arts. Mr. Perkins was amazing. He and his staff are terrific writers and were readily available with reassuring answers as I navigated the O-1 application. Not only did they help me present my good case as a great case for the O-1, but I was treated with a tremendous amount of respect and dignity throughout the process. The result: my O-1 was approved without any problems! Because of my positive O-1 experience, I gladly engaged Mr. Perkins when it came time to apply for my Green Card. It goes without saying he once again proved himself to be invaluable in helping me secure my permanent residence status here in the USA. I highly recommend Mr. Perkins and his staff to anyone seeking help in the immigration area. I have truly appreciated the personalized service Mr. Perkins has provided and his compassionate and caring attitude towards both me and my case. Robert has now become a friend of my family and I highly recommend him and his staff to anyone seeking a positive visa and green card journey.

Robert Perkins
Robert was referred to me by another attorney who is also a trusted friend. I had been waiting several years to get my green card and had seen several lawyers before I met Robert Perkins, The Immigration Professor… My green card case was complicated and stuck! Robert was able to get it moving again and put me back on the path to my green card which I received after hiring him. I am now hiring The Immigration Professor, again to pursue my citizenship. I am so happy with the service and professionalism provided by Robert and his staff. I would highly recommend The Immigration Professor firm to anyone seeking to immigrate to the United States.

Thorough, accurate job
am happy to make this review for Robert Perkins, The Immigration Professor. I used the services of the Immigration professor to help me with my citizenship case. My case was a bit challenging due to extensive international travel issues as I star and perform in operas both in the USA and internationally. Robert timed my citizenshipship case just perfectly to ensure that I was able to successfully naturalize. My home, husband and children are here in the United States so becoming United States citizen was very important to me. Robert and I worked well together and communicated great which really helped to make this process a success. I highly recommend Robert Perkins, the Immigration Professor, for anyone who needs help in this most important area in these challenging times.

an excellent lawyer and an amazing friend
I hired Robert (“Bob”) Perkins around 15 years ago to help me get my H-1B and eventually my green card through my employer. Bob was excellent and really got into the guts of my case. During the process I was really happy that we have became friends and would often have a coffee together... Even after I got my green card we stayed friends. Bob eventually helped my wife to immigrate here and helped both of us naturalize and become citizens. I can't imagine going through such a difficult, arduous, and consuming endeavor with anyone other than Bob! I am very grateful to have Bob both as an immigration lawyer and friend. During the process Bob is very responsive and professional and my wife and I have always felt well cared for by him. I highly recommend Bob for anyone seeking help navigating the crazy maze of the American immigration system.

Excelente services
About 2 years ago a friend of mine recommended The Immigration Professor to me. I was very satisfied with his services, attorney Perkins is very professional and knowledgeable of the law. He helped me to adjust my status from my non immigrant visa to become a permanent resident. My husband & I are very thankful he kept constant communication with us regarding the process. I would definitely recommend his services.

One of the best
My family used Robert Perkins services many years ago to get my H-1B and eventually my green card. The firm also helped with my wife and my son. Robert Perkins help me a lot and I’m so grateful to him and his firm for their professionalism and attention to my case and that of my family. It really helped because the Immigration situation was nerve-racking for me and my wife.... Mr. Perkins made that better. Mr. Perkins is now known throughout our Bulgarian community and nationwide as an exceptional immigration attorney. I highly recommend his services to anyone needing Immigration help.
