At our firm, we place an emphasis on accessibility and personalized service. We offer personal attention to you and your case and are here for you to answer all of your questions.

After we begin your case you will have responsive attention from your attorney throughout the process.

We handle a substantial amount of I-601, I-601A, and I-212 Waivers of inadmissibility that are filed in the US or at the US Consulates abroad and have had an almost perfect success rate.

We handle family-based Adjustment of Status in the US and Consulate processing of immigrant visas abroad. We are working with same-sex couples who are now entitled to the same benefits. We also work with US citizens who are petitioning for their fiancees who live in another country.

We prepare applications for victims of crime for a U visa, Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), and we prepare many Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) applications.
