Legal Assistance for Residency, Citizenship and Other Immigration Issues

Whether you are planning a temporary stay in the United States or you are trying to obtain full citizenship, you are going to need the assistance of a knowledgeable and experienced immigration attorney. At Jonathan A. Bartell, Attorney with Margaret W. Wong & Associates, we have a Cleveland immigration lawyer with years of experience in his field. Attorney Jonathan A. Bartell is not afraid to take on even the most challenging of immigration cases.

The skilled attorney handles a broad spectrum of immigration issues. Some clients turn to him because they are at risk of being removed from the country and need deportation defense. Sometimes deportations are the result of criminal convictions. Other clients want to obtain citizenship. One of the ways to become a citizen is through naturalization, a process that involves a number of requirements, including prior permanent residency. The firm is able to help immigrants obtain various types of visas, such as employment visas and non-immigrant visas (which can be given to students and business travelers, among others). In some cases, immigrants who face persecution for religious beliefs, political affiliations or other specified reasons can apply for asylum in the United States.

Whatever type of immigration-related issue you are facing, our firm can work with you on a personal level and help you carry out the most effective actions toward achieving your desired goal. Attorney Bartell is fluent in five languages—including Arabic, English, Russian, Spanish and Thai—so he is able to interact with clients of many different cultural backgrounds.
