I am an immigration attorney assisting clients through the U.S. immigration process, including obtaining immigrant and nonimmigrant visas, applying for a Green Card and citizenship, adjusting immigration status, achieving family reunion, seeking asylum and resolving other immigration related issues.
I represent clients before the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, Immigration Court and the Board of Immigration Appeals.
If you are just embarking on the immigration process, you may be wondering whether you need to hire an immigration lawyer. While some people may be able to navigate basic procedures without legal assistance, the fact is that the U.S. immigration system is complicated — including in ways that are not apparent on the surface. It is very important to comply with immigration laws, regulations, and paperwork formalities if you wish to complete the immigration process in a timely manner and avoid undesirable ramifications. As an immigration lawyer, I guide my clients step by step through these procedures and make their immigration process as smooth as possible. If you work with me, you can expect:

IMMIGRANT & NONIMMIGRANT VISAS
With very few exceptions, visitors to the United States must obtain a visa in order to enter the country. There are two main types of visas: immigrant visas, for those who wish to remain permanently in the U.S., and non-immigrant visas, for those who will stay in the U.S. only temporarily.
There are two main ways to obtain an immigrant visa. The first way is to be sponsored by an employer or by someone already legally residing in the U.S., such as a relative, spouse, or fiancé. Most people who obtain an immigrant visa do so through this type of “sponsorship” process. However, there are certain exceptional situations in which sponsorship is not necessary, so it is important to investigate all of the possible options that may be available in particular cases. The second way to obtain an immigrant visa is through the Diversity Visa Program, better known as the “Green Card Lottery.” This program awards up to 55,000 visas annually to applicants from countries with low rates of immigration to the U.S. Unlike the other categories of immigrant visas, the Diversity Visa Program awards visas on a random basis, country by country, to applicants who meet the relevant eligibility criteria.
For visitors who do not necessarily wish to remain in the United States permanently, a non-immigrant visa will provide authorization to enter and stay in the U.S. for a fixed period of time. There are many different types of non-immigrant visas, covering various purposes of travel such as tourism, study, business, and exchange. Although non-immigrant visas do not authorize permanent residence in the U.S., many such visas can be renewed successively.
