When You Need an Immigration Attorney

United States immigration law is a complex field requiring the complete understanding of regulations and laws from multiple government agencies. With those laws and regulations being federal in nature, U.S. immigration attorneys handle cases in all 50 states and represent clients before federal agencies and circuit courts. Persons with immigration related issues of any kind, whether personal or business, require competent counsel from an experienced attorney who specializes in immigration law to help ensure successful results.

Immigration attorneys assist individuals with such immigration issues as applications for work visas, marriage and fiance visas, family petitions, investor visas, deportation defense, asylum, citizenship, motions to reopen, appeals, and any other issue that involve immigration both directly and indirectly. The immigration attorney is able to assess each individual situation with the knowledge of all applicable laws and resources for available options to help resolve the issue or prepare an appeal.

Businesses benefit from representation of an expert immigration attorney when trying to establish a U.S. subsidiary or affiliate. Legal representation is strongly recommended when transferring employees to the U.S. to expedite work visas or legal permanent residence status. It is also recommended before investing in U.S. companies to protect the business interests.

Immigration law is too complex to trust to an inexperienced attorney, with errors or omissions having costly and potentially irreparable consequences. For competent representation, be sure that your immigration attorney is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA). Ask about similar cases to yours that the attorney has successfully represented so you will know that your attorney has the experience needed to offer you the very best available counsel.
