Practice area

Douglas A. Cowgill is an attorney with more than six years of experience focusing in the area of US immigration law. Previously, he worked for one of the largest immigration firms in North America, assisting individuals and corporations of all sizes with a vast array of immigration services, including nonimmigrant work visas, green cards, waivers of inadmissibility and renunciation applications.

In 2018, Attorney Cowgill opened his own legal practice focused on US immigration legal services. He frequently meets clients in person to understand the situation, advise on all available options, and work together towards achieving the client’s immigration goals. One of his primary goals is to develop meaningful relationships with his clients so that they feel confident about the attorney handling their case. He handles a wide variety of U.S. business immigration and U.S. family immigration applications, including TN visas, E-1 visas, E-2 visas, H-1B visas, L-1 visas, green cards through family sponsorship, green cards through employment, and waivers of inadmissibility.

Douglas A. Cowgill is a licensed attorney in the State of Washington in the United States, and is also licensed as a Practitioner of Foreign Law with the British Columbia Law Society. He is an active member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA). He grew up in Madison, Wisconsin and attended law school at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he earned his Juris Doctorate in 2010.

Attorney Cowgill has firsthand knowledge of the immigration process, having immigrated to Canada from the US. He understands the level of importance that an immigration application can have both for individuals and companies conducting cross-border business. He strives to handle every case as if it were his own, understanding that a client’s matter is just as important to them as his case was to him when he immigrated to Canada.

haiti immigrant help
I was stranded in Haiti for 3 months after traveling home to participate on a mission trip. My family was stranded in the US. Douglas spent many hours helping me with paperwork, contacting officials and I was allowed back in to US. Not sure I would have been reunited with my family if it wasn't for Douglas.

Bright young mind
