  • Comprehensive immigration reform: President Obama is working with Congress to come up with a comprehensive new immigration plan that will hopefully benefit not only the immigrants themselves, but also the U.S. economy.
  • Consular processing: If you are seeking to establish permanent residency in the U.S. then you will go through consular processing. This is the process by which you apply and are accepted or denied entry into America. Talk with one of our Cincinnati immigration attorneys today to learn how we can assist you.
  • Deferred action on childhood arrivals: Children who have entered the nation illegally, but have grown up in U.S., may be eligible for deferred action if they meet certain eligibility requirements. Find out information regarding these qualifications and contact our firm to learn how we can protect your future and your rights if you are seeking deferred action.
  • Deportation defense: There are many individuals who face deportation or removal proceedings due to many different circumstances. Our firm can assist with a defense of your deportation case through many different methods.
  • Employment eligibility: If you are a foreign national or if you are a resident of the United States, then you will need to show that you are eligible for employment if you are seeking to work in the United States. There is a document that verifies this, which you will be required to fill out at the time of your hire.
  • Green card/permanent resident cards: There are three common ways that people can pursue obtaining a green card; however, there are multiple processes that can be taken. It can be a complicated process without the help of an immigration lawyer, so contact us today!
  • Immigration appeals: Whether it is due to the complexity of a specific situation or a minor error on the immigration application, it is not uncommon for individuals to receive a negative result. If your application was denied, it might be possible to appeal that decision. Contact our firm to learn more about your options.
  • Naturalization: Naturalization is the process by which an individual becomes a U.S. citizen. There are various requirements you must meet and an application you must file. You must be at least 18 and have not been convicted of a serious crime. Always speak with an immigration attorney at our firm before you move forward in any capacity.
  • Types of visas: There are essentially two different kinds of visas, immigrant and nonimmigrant visas. If you are seeking permanent residency then you will benefit from an immigrant visa, if you are seeking a short-term trip to the U.S. then you need a nonimmigrant visa. We can help with family-based immigration and employment visas, including E1 and E2 visas, EB-5 visas, regional center investment visas and other visas for professionals.
  • Waivers of inadmissibility: These waivers are a potential option for immigrants who may be forced to leave the U.S. for reasons such as criminal history, health issues, fraud, smuggling or other activities. Allowing a knowledgeable attorney to look closely at your case before you simply accept deportation could help keep you in the U.S. Whether you have a question about stateside waiver processing or waivers for illegal entry, we encourage you to contact our firm.
  • Immigration and criminal defense: If you are a lawful permanent resident of the United States, it is important for you to know that there are various actions that could result in removal proceedings or deportation for you. Some of these include various criminal actions. Criminal consequences can be devastating. Offenses such as DUI/DWI, white collar crimes, identity theft, marriage fraud, false claims to citizenship, criminal re-entry or other serious crimes can have damaging, lifelong consequences.
  • Languages we speak: Our legal team is fluent in four other languages besides English, including Spanish, Russian, Thai and Arabic. This allows our firm to offer legal services to a wide range of people groups both across the United States and internationally.
  • Middle Eastern immigration: There are various ways to obtain immigrant status and lawful permanent residency. If you are coming from a country in the Middle East, you may be able to claim asylum for residency in the U.S.
  • Russian immigration: Our legal team consists of one individual who is fluent in Russian so that we may maintain constant and clear communication with our clients. Further, we have an office in St. Petersburg that we visit on a regular basis.
