Complications such as prior convictions, failure to register with the U.S. Selective Service and public assistance are some
of the prevalent issues in Naturalization cases. Therefore clients may feel more comfortable seeking legal assistance
when naturalizing. We provide preparation for Naturalization cases, including interview preparation and/or representation
at time of interview.
We represent individuals in obtaining professional visas, specializing in H-1B Visas, O Visas, L Visas and Religious Visas.

We provide assistance in initial registration and re-registration for all countries currently designated under TPS. The designated countries include: El Salvador, Honduras, Somalia, Burundi, Nicaragua, Sudan, and Liberia.
Our team of attorneys is dedicated to seeking all potential options in your case. We have vast experience in appeals to the Board of Immigration Appeals and the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
VAWA (Violence Against Women Act)
We provide assistance to clients who apply under VAWA. VAWA petitions allow for self-petitioning battered or abused spouses, parents, and children of U.S. Citizens or Permanent Residents to seek adjustment of status.
The U Visa is available to certain victims of crimes and/or their immediate family members. It allows temporary
legal status and work eligibility for up to four years. After the third year a U Visa grantee can seek permanent residency. Among the enumerated crimes are domestic violence, assault, rape, perjury, murder, among others.
Deferred Action (DACA)
On June 15, 2012, President Obama announced that young immigrants who entered the country before the age of 16 can qualify for an immigration relief benefit known as "Deferred Action". An applicant who is granted deferred action will not be deported and qualifies for a work permit renewable every two years.
