Proven firm offers full legal support for a wide range of immigration issues

We provide guidance in all matters related to immigration, such as:

  • Green cards — If you seek lawful permanent resident status within the United States, we will advise you of the requirements and support your application whether you are outside the country or are here and seeking an adjustment of status.
  • Family-based immigration — Our knowledge in this area will help you understand how you can bring a loved one to America. Various factors can affect consideration of these cases, including the specific relationship and the homeland in question.
  • LGBT immigration issues — Varying standards that exist throughout the world can make it very difficult for LGBT individuals and families who seek entry into the United States. Our firm has a detailed understanding of the relevant issues and handles cases where LGBT residents are facing persecution in their home country.
  • Appeals — Often the denial of a requested immigration action is based on a faulty interpretation or incomplete information. If your application has been rejected, we might be able to build a strong argument for reversal.
  • USCIS temporary protected status — We pursue temporary protected status from USCIS for people who are here and seek to avoid removal due to dangerous conditions in certain designated countries.
  • Employment-based immigration — Our clients include a variety of employers who are looking to attract needed personnel. We also represent individuals who wish to work and live in United States.
  • International adoptions — Bringing a baby here from another country requires a thorough understanding of the laws and procedures in both countries. We give prospective parents the guidance they need to complete this joyful process.
