About Philip

Learn Philip’s areas of practice.

Practice area

There are many facets to the immigration laws whether it be reuniting family through the green card and waiver process to defending removal proceedings and attacking the government's evidence.  As well, we enjoy procuring visas for U.S. employers for their foreign national employees and ensuring their I-9's are properly completed.  There's never a dull day in our office with the variety of cases we handle and this makes each day a challenge and one that we embrace and enjoy. 


We've staffed our firm with some fantastic people that come from all walks of life.  Each contributes their own personal experiences and work experiences to our decision making process.  Coupling those perspectives with my experience as a prosecutor, a practicing lawyer and a teacher of immigration law at Cleveland Marshall School of Law gives each of our clients a great advantage.  


Give us a call and let's see if we can't help you, your family or your business through the immigration maze.

Excellent Experience
I have a complex case because when I talked to a few Attorneys about my case they don’t know how to handle it; however, one honest Attorney recommends me Attorney Philip Eichorn. I met Attorney Philip Eichorn and he was directly to my options and he was really explicit about my situation. I felt really conformable with him and he answers in details all my questions. My experience with Philip Eichron was fantastic and I felt like I was talking to a family member. I just became a US CITIZEN and I want to THANKS Attorney Philip Eichron and all his STAFF. Thanks a lot for all your help !!! H. E.

Very Experienced
Me and my wife recently got married and needed advice and direction for how to proceed. We called the firm based on his reviews. Attorney Christina Turovskiy was assigned to our case which was handled flawlessly, she did an excellent job. The interactions we had with Mr Eichorn and his firm were very positive. My wife received the green card today and we owe it to Christina and Mr Eichorn's firm.

Immigration law specialist
My husband and I decided to get a lawyer's help with the process of getting my permanent resident status. My husband was the one who chose Phillip to be our lawyer. It was about 1 and a half years ago. And from my point of view I am 100% sure it was a VERY good decision. From the very beginning we had a million questions about the process, forms, accuracy of each step, other documents that were required from us. We got prompt and clear answers to each question. Distance, time of the day, additional explanations were never an issue. At the beginning the process seemed long, but with Phillips assistance I received my Green Card within 3 months. I would highly recommend Phillip to everyone who takes their immigration status seriously and wants to live in US legally. The price for his work is absolutely reasonable. Phillip is very professional, knowledgeable, and he was always doing his best for me as his client.

Philip helped my husband that was deported to El Salvador
Philip was the only attorney out of all of the Cleveland immigration lawyers that told me that anything could be done when my husband was deported to El Salvador. I spoke with 8 other attorneys and some of them were said to be the best in the region but couldn't even answer my questions, let alone confirm that they could do anything to help. By the way, my husband will be on his way home in May when everyone told me that it was nearly impossible to get him back. Thanks to Phil, we will finally be able to have a safe and normal life together. When I met with Philip and his team, I felt comfortable and I could tell he really cared and had passion for sincerely helping his clients, he was extremely honest and realistic which I appreciated very much. He was also extremely fair priced and explained everything in laymen's terms to help me decipher all the legal jargon. He knew every little detail of my case and never left me in the dark. He is very personable and confident and I personally feel that he is the best immigration attorney in the area and he also has clients in other locations of the nation. I recently recommended a friend of mine from Russia to him to help with his immigration issues. I know he will be able to help him.

Hire him!!!
Philip has created a name for himself and a team that he can rely on. I've had every possible complication and set back possible with my wife and her immigration process. He has been patient with me as I try to manage being in school full time and work as much as possible. I am grateful for his and his teams continued patience and give him my highest recommendation to anyone considering to hire him.

Overall Rating: 10 STARS instead of 5
My case was considered one of the unique immigration cases out there. However, ever since I found Attorney Eichorn on the internet, everything was gradually better. I could say he is one of the best thing ever happened in my life. I was in the highest state of despair and was facing deportation order in early 2010. I applied political asylum in 2001, got denied, filed an appeal, and got denied. It continued to the 3rd circuit and got denied. I had been working with two different law firms back in 2001-2006. The latest attorney I worked with might have screwed up my case. My husband was literally eligible to sponsor me, yet my attorney did not do anything about it. I was even uninformed when I received deportation order. Mr. Eichorn is a very straightforward person. Prior to hire him, he provided his idea how to cope the situation, how to handle in any case the worst scenario happened. As time went by, he succeeded handle my complex case one step by one step. He is very intelligent and well experienced. With his knowledge and skill, he successfully convinced the ICE officer to allow me to stay in the US; the judge to reopen my previous case and to finally close it so I could go to the next process of gaining my status. Almost 13 years since my arrival in the US, I eventually received my Permanent Resident Card. Thanks to him. I found him a very trustworthy lawyer to work with, he is fair with the money I had to spend for his service. He is not a person who will take advantage from client’s situation. He is very outstanding in both personality and profession. I believe his passion to help others will bring more positive results in his profession too. I highly recommend Mr. Eichorn to anyone in need of immigration legal service. He is the proof a trustworthy lawyer still exists.

Competence, integrity and honesty!
Mr. Eichorn and his staff have proven to be extremely professional and competent. We retained his firm to handle my mom's naturalization case, which was wrought with very unusual complications. Mr. Eichorn covered all eventualities and worst case scenarios, and tackled every issue with diligence and success. The firm walked us though all the steps with patience, integrity and even provided moral support. When my mom went to the interview, it became evident that he was very well known, respected and liked at the USCIS office. Mr. Eichorn's, indisputable competence, sense of humor and his staff's patience and professionalism makes the process of dealing with the US Immigration authorities a lot less stressful! We feel that his fees were very reasonable considering the amount of work his firm poured into my mom's case, which resulted in her obtaining US Citizenship. We recommend Mr. Eichorn and his firm 100%!

A++++++ Experience and Service
Phil Eichorn assisted our family through the immigration process of adopting my step-daughter and the naturalization of my wife. Phil's knowledge of the process and his relationships with the immigration personnel helped everything go smoothly without any unexpected delays. Phil also helped my wife prepare for her citizenship interview and without his help, she would have encountered some possible preparation issues on the questions that would be asked. Phil personally accompanied both my wife and my daughter during their interviews and his presence was a big plus in the eyes of the immigration interviewer. We would highly recommend Phil to anyone requiring immigration expertise.

Highly Recommended
My wife and I worked with Phil for the past three years regarding removal proceedings, an I-130 petition and AOS. He willingly travelled to NY three times, two of those for interviews and once for preparation. Correspondance with the firm was easily accessible and response rate was consistently prompt. Phil was ability to handle our complex situation professionally. He ensured that we understood his ideas and were comfortable with his recommendations on how to proceed. His staff gave us great service and always kept us informed on any updates to our case. Overall highly satisfied and looking forward to Naturalization.

Very efficient and trustworthy person.
I hired Mr. Philip Eichorn to help me file my immigration papers. I am an Indian citizen, who entered US on F1 visa and I met my wonderful wife (American Citizen) and got married while I was still in college .We dint file my immigration papers after our marriage as I was busy with my college schedule. After I finished college I got my OPT EAD card and was working and in July 2011 my college was under USCIS investigation and my status was in jeopardy. I contacted many attorneys before Philip, but dint get good suggestions. When I contacted Philip he evaluated my situation and gave a very prompt feedback about how to go ahead and save my status. After meeting Philip , me and my wife had complete confidence in him and his team and we were sure he knew what he was doing. He has immense knowledge and is a trustworthy person . I filed my papers in Aug 2011 and got my got my GC approved in the first week of Dec 2011. Throughout the process Philip and his team worked closely with us and were very supportive and prompt with their work. His prep sessions were very helpful and he gave us the real feel of the USCIS interview . He and his team treated us very politely and dint not make us feel as if we were just a case #. Camille is one of his team member, who is a wonderful lady who always greeted us with a smile and was very good to me and my wife. All in all Mr. Philip Eichorn is an efficient and straight forward person and has an amazing team. I would definitely recommend him for others who are in search of an efficient attorney. Reading some reviews before have helped me personally and I hope my review would also be helpful to others . Thanks Happy Holidays .

Attorney Philip Alan Eichorn cares about his clients
Attorney Philip Alan Eichorn is a very caring and responsive lawyer. When I called him to request his service, I had already spent hours calling law offices where people were quite prejudiced and unresponsive. Once I called Mr. Eichorn, he gave me so many information for free and was so willing to help me out that I did not hesitate to work with him. Besides, when you go see him, you will see the most relaxed and confident professional you can ever see. Above all, Attorney Eichorn had an excellent lawyer represent me throughout my immigration paperwork applications. Thank you.

Outstanding Service
From the very beginning Philip took charge in aggressive defense helping my wife and me fighting INS deportation and removal procedures. I am a US Army soldier and unfortunately US Army JAG does not represent you in Immigration court. I was forced to look for an attorney in the private sector. The second I called and gave an overview of our case I heard Phil saying: "I will be happy to get your case and I know exactly how to handle it" ...and he did. He kept us informed at all times and was very accessible through the e-mails and personal cell phone. My wife now is a Permanent resident of the US with 10 years Green Card. We are very happy with the outcome of the case and now trying to forget that horrible moment of facing deportation.

When this situation is brought to AVVO attention, Avvo refuses to do anything to investigate and remove the false, slanderous "client" reviews.
