The highest standard of client service

We believe that every one of our clients deserves the highest level of service and expertise. Our firm consists of attorneys, senior paralegals, paralegals and support staff who are dedicated to the principle that the only reason our firm exists is because of our clients. We follow standard procedures which put our clients first: we do not take messages when a client calls; each time a client calls they speak to a real person who can assist them. We assign specific teams of Firm members so that our clients have multiple people available to assist them.

Our reputation wins cases

When our Firm was founded in 1978, the immigration process was much less complicated and much more personal than it is today. Now we have multiple federal agencies involved in the process, each of which has a much less cooperative approach to immigrants and the immigration process. Over the years, we have successfully challenged these agencies to follow the law in a consistent and professional manner. On many occasions, we have won lawsuits against these agencies when their actions violated the law or the rights of our clients.

The federal agencies involved in the immigration process know that our cases are prepared and presented in a professional and legally correct manner. They also know that we will aggressively represent our clients and will ensure that the law is correctly applied.
