Learn Brandon’s areas of practice.

1
Practice area

My practice consists solely of U.S. immigration and citizenship law. Green cards, citizenship, temporary work visas, asylum, and removal defense are among the top areas of my immigration practice. I have helped many people obtain immigration benefits such as lawful permanent residency either through family-based or employment-based petitions, or through immigration court proceedings.

green card
Alexandra promptly returned my phone call late one afternoon. She was polite and knowledgeable. Although I did not speak with Brandon Gillin myself, I would recommend this law firm just on the enthusiasm and politeness of Alexandra alone. She was a great help.

Immigration Consultation
Brandon is a great lawyer. I had a consultation with him so that I could understand the ins and outs of a spouse visa. He listened to my questions attentively and gave great explanations. I highly recommend Brandon if you have any general questions about the immigration process.

Don’t look further he’s the best
I have had a chance to work with Brandon and his staff and I have to say they are the best. He helped me with my own case and was successful. I have had him work with my mum and was very successful too. Despite being in a different state he still assisted me and I got nothing but gratefulness for how he’s handled my cases. If u looking for professionalism and on time updates this is the lawyer for you.

excellent lawyer
Would recommend brandon to anyone matter of fact I have. I had an easier case, but had issues because the first attorney I hired did not do their job. Anyway brandon was right on it from the start. The first day I met him he emailed uscis and got the ball rolling. The whole office is very nice and they keep in contact with you through the whole process. If you have any questions or concerns through the process brandon is there to answer them and he returns calls very quickly. The process was quick once it got rolling. Our interview got canceled once because of covid, but even then brandon contacted uscis and kept in touch with us. Excellent attorney.

Green Card
When my wife and I were looking for an attorney to apply for my green card, Brandon was there to help through the process.

Professional and Trustworthy lawyer
Brandon has been very helpful with my family immigration case. He offered me and my family very professional opinions about how to apply for green cards. Without him, I definitely would've made some mistakes on when and where to submit important documents.

Excellent lawyer
If you are looking for a good immigration lawyer, go to this guy. When I was working on my citizenship application, I made a terrible mistake due to being so stressed. I informed him about it 3 days before my interview. Brandon took care of it and my interview went well.

A GREAT EXPERIENCE!!
No one goes to attorneys for easy stuff. For highly complicated matters like citizen applications, we need someone who can give us precise guidance based on knowledge, experience and facts. Firm and confident guidance makes a world of difference in making decisions in intricate matters. On top of these, it’s GREAT when someone treats you as a valued customer, no matter how big or small your case might be, and treats you with respect and sympathy. Many of our worries are dissolved when an expert just patiently hears our problems. These are all that I experienced when I approached Mr. Brandon. I am very thankful for the experience and the guidance. I do a ton of research before approaching an attorney, and I am very glad I reached out to Mr. Brandon for my immigration related needs. My immigration matters are progressing well with the valuable guidance I received from Mr. Brandon. I highly recommend Mr. Brandon for all immigration related needs.

Thank you Mr. Brandon
I got what I prayed for. Thank you, Mr. Brandon, of Genesis Law Firm for assessing me in my immigration papers. Brandon was a very helpful and kind person. It was a smooth process and quick-witted assistance. My green card was approved without an interview. You are truly great. I will surely recommend Brandon as an immigration lawyer.

There's a reason for his perfect rating.
I talked to few lawyers over the phone before determining to hire Brandon. He will walkthrough your questions and he follows up the next business. I don't think i remember getting an answer any later than that, except for Holidays. It was a long two year run, but it was comforting having his expertise that no amount of googling could help. Definitely will hire again/recommend when i take my citizenship test. I learned it's best to get it right the first time.

The Best
I will feel forever grateful for Brandon. We hired him for my husbands immigration process. He was very straightforward but also supportive during the 2 year stressful process. Most importantly, he was extremely accurate with paperwork and advice. He always seemed genuine and happy to see us and hear from us even from me (kind of needy client.) My brother in law is also using him as his lawyer for his immigration case. Thanks Brandon

Fiancé Visa
Nobody could have handled the job any better than how Atty. Gillin did it! From the very beginning, he was very accommodating and thorough in explaining what to expect in the process. My then fiancé filed a petition in February 2019, and to our surprise, we got the green light from Department of Homeland Security that the petition had already been approved - - - just after 4 months the application had been filed!!! Since we got the approval, I proceeded in completing the requirements so my interview with US Embassy in Manila, Philippines, could be scheduled. Atty. Gillin guided me every step of the way to ensure that the documents I would be submitting for my interview were comprehensive and accurate. As expected, I got the Consul's sweetest line "Congratulations! Welcome to America!" After everything I needed to fix with my work, I flew to Seattle on November 23, 2019. Three weeks thereafter, my fiance and I got married at a Catholic Church. My husband and I went to Atty. Gillin's office to thank him personally. We dropped by without notice, and despite his seemingly hectic schedule, he was gracious of his time to meet us. He was generous enough also to tell me briefly the next step e.g. Apply for Change of Status to get a green card. For immigration matters, I highly recommend Atty. Brandon Gillin - a brilliant and credible lawyer! Thank you.

Great Laywer
My mother and I hired Brandon to help with her immigration to the US. We were extremely pleased with his service and attention to detail with my mother's application. He always answered are phone calls, and emails in a timely manner. His Assistant Abby is great too. We highly recommend Brandon, and the Genesis law firm and will use their services in the future if needed.

Hardworking & Reliable attorney!!
It was a pleasure to have Brandon as our lawyer. He's helped us through our case by working hard and doing so out of his compassion. We are very pleased with how knowledgable and respectful he was towards our situation. Brandon has been our lawyer for almost 3 years and he was able to help us get through our very tough case; there wasn't a second where we as a family felt as though we couldn't count on Brandon. Throughout those years, he helped us prepare and fill out paperwork that was necessary to our case, and he was very persistent with letting us know if anything happens. Our case was one that was definitely not easy, it was extremely hard for us as a family, and I'm sure it was just as hard for Brandon. But he never gave up and continued to work with diligence to successfully get us our permanent residence here in the US. I highly recommend Brandon as your Immigration lawyer!
