A Lawyer's Lawyer for Immigration Matters

The land flourished because it was fed from so many sources-because it was nourished by so many cultures and traditions and peoples.

Lyndon B. Johnson

America seems to be at a boiling point on immigration. We have forgotten what this nation is – not just how it began, but how it became great. We are the great melting pot. We are the world’s greatest experiment of cultural, spiritual and racial diversity. But, of course, there must be order, there must be law, there must be process or the experiment won’t work for anyone.

The landscape of immigration law is as complex and nuanced as any area of law in this nation. We have rules, exceptions to the rules, exceptions to the exceptions, new programs designed to work around the rules, executive orders that may or may not be legal – and the only real answer a person can generally get is, “It depends.”

I am a former Trial Attorney for the Department of Homeland Security/Immigration and Customs Enforcement, now using the skills and knowledge I have developed to advocate for my immigrant clients. Because of my experience both from DHS and in private practice, I am able to evaluate my clients’ options and their likelihood of success saving them time, money, and unnecessary stress.

Understanding What Matters

And, it really does depend on any number of things. Criminal record, point of entry, date of entry, length of time in country, relatives with status, prior immigration history, visa status, work skills, prior cooperation with law enforcement, hardships, age, health, country of origin, previous court filings, on and on – here are literally hundreds to thousands of small details that might just make all the difference in an immigration matter.

This is the key. That one small detail can only help you if (a) your immigration lawyer knows about that nuance of the law, and (b) your immigration lawyer gets all of the relevant information from you. This is why an immigration consultation is so important. Be prepared for it – bring every piece of paper that might help and let us sort through to find what we need. Be prepared to tell us about your life history, your family, their history, any previous encounters with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials, any previous work done by other immigration attorneys.
