A major part of our practice involves assisting individuals, families and businesses in filing the appropriate paperwork for immigration benefits and guiding their documents through the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS, formerly INS). Our extensive experience in Immigration and Immigration Law includes helping recent immigrants to the United States adjust their status by applying for permanent residency (“green card”) or citizenship; assisting United States citizens and permanent resident in filing family-based petitions for loved ones; aiding employers and businesses in filing out and filing the appropriate paperwork for their foreign workers; and advocating for immigrants to receive the government benefits to which they are entitled. We can also help you apply for employment authorization (work permit), an H1B work visa, or an extension of stay in the United States. Call us today to help you navigate the complex waters of the US immigration system.
