About Immigration Services

Whether your family, employment, or ability to stay in the country is threatened by a legal issue, you’ll want to turn to a dedicated, experienced lawyer to help you.

Immigration Cases

Deferred Action (DACA)

This policy allows individuals that immigrated to the United States before their 16th birthday and before June 2007 to avoid deportation and obtain a work permit.

Petitions for Non-Immigrant and Immigrant Workers

Citizens of other countries can obtain temporary jobs in the US or extend their stay in the US through these petitions.

Family-Based Immigration

You may be able to obtain a visa or green card for a family member if you are a US citizen or permanent resident. We can assist you in determining family member eligibility and filing the necessary paperwork.

Motions to Reopen and Motions to Reconsider with ASCUS

You can motion to have your application reopened or reconsidered if it was unjustly denied, or you have new evidence to present to the cause.

Applications for Waivers

We can assist you in submitting a waiver if you are, for some reason, inadmissible to the United States.

Adjustment of Status Requests

If you’d like to request to change your legal status to permanent residency, we can assist you in this process.

Citizenship and Naturalization

The process of becoming a US citizen, or naturalization, can be very complicated. Legal counsel at your side can make sure you meet all of the qualifications and file your paperwork correctly.

Asylum Cases

If you are facing dangerous threats that are based on your race, religion, national origin, social group status, or political affiliation, we can help you seek safety via asylum in the US.

If you’d like to learn more about how we can help you with immigration law matters and live within a 25-mile radius, give us a call at our Lafayette office today. We assist all Spanish and English speaking clients. An initial consultation is only $100 for an hour, which will be applied to your account if we are hired.

No fee until settlement pertains to personal injury cases only.
