Do I have to make an appointment?

What do I have to bring to the consultation?

Can I consult for a family member or friend who is detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement?

One hundred percent of our practice is dedicated to immigration cases, which include immigration for families, deportation or removal defense, business-related immigration concerns, “crimmigration,” and other issues. We focus strictly on immigration laws and keep well-informed on these laws which are constantly changing.

Can you assist with other legal matters?

Yes. We have a wealth of resources we can refer clients to for any other legal need. In addition, we consult with other attorneys to advise them of immigration consequences that may happen to clients who have other types of legal concerns.
