If You are Planning to Travel to the USA

If you are planning to travel to the United States, you generally must obtain a U.S. visa first. Having a U.S. visa allows you to travel to a port of entry, airport or land border crossing, and request permission of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Customs and Border Protection (CBP) inspector to enter the United States. We assist with the two main categories of visas — immigrant visas and non-immigrant visas.

Removal Defense

Most people face removal defense after getting into legal trouble. If you have received a notice to appear because the INS believes that you are inadmissible or deportable, it is critical that you contact a lawyer immediately. Failure to take appropriate action can have serious consequences.

We can help when a criminal matter has immigration consequences. If you are in legal trouble, you should know that the decisions you make can affect your immigration status. Don’t take action until you call an experienced immigration attorney. We draw on years of experience to help you make the right decisions about what actions to take.

At our firm, we take the time to talk with you about your options. When you leave our office, you may not know everything about immigration law — but you will know everything about your case. This knowledge will give you the confidence to make an informed decision about what to do when facing removal or deportation.
