We are a Boston immigration law firm who handles cases in Boston Immigration Court and USCIS.

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.

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.

You need an immigration attorney to help you file your paperwork.  An immigration lawyer can prevent delays in your application and risks to your rights.  

We 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, 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.

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.  It’s worth it, though, if it means your petition won’t require additional requests for evidence.

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.
