It is tough to be a non-citizen, especially during these times when immigrants are demonized every day in politics.  I’m here to be your shield against those who would try to remove you from this country, and help you secure your right to stay in this country.

I have helped numerous people get their green cards, get authorization to work, get visas, and get their citizenship.  I believe in doing my best to secure your right to stay in this country and build your future with your family.

While an immigration attorney can be a significant investment, they are worth the cost in avoiding crucial mistakes.

I can help with the following types of immigration cases and more:

How an Immigration Lawyer Can Help You

While the paperwork necessary to get your green card, become a U.S. citizen, or get a visa may seem simple, there are many hidden pitfalls waiting to trap you.  This is true even if your petition is based on being an immediate relative or married to a U.S. citizen.

I have people come into my office all the time who filled out their immigration paperwork wrong, received a request for additional evidence, and have a short timeline to fix it.  As I learned when I was little, it’s always better to do things the right way the first time, and an immigration lawyer can ensure that you’re not in this position.

We believe in exploring every possible angle when submitting immigration paperwork to avoid potential hurdles.  For every immigration case we submit, we do extensive research to ensure that everything is done the right way, the first time.

You especially need an experienced Boston immigration lawyer if you have a criminal record.

We believe in making sure that your application is processed easily and without unnecessary delay.  This means ensuring that we send in your paperwork with all the evidence necessary.  This can mean we submit a large amount of evidence, and it can take a long time to gather.  I often submit more than enough evidence to make sure there are no delays.  It’s worth it, though, if it means your petition won’t require additional requests for evidence.  

I use an electronic questionnaire and online checklist to ensure I have all the information necessary for your immigration petition.

An immigration attorney can also help things run smoothly in interviews for green cards or naturalization.  Our immigration attorney represents people in Boston immigration court and processes paperwork with the USCIS.
