Immigration Law

Immigration law and process are constantly evolving and changing but are always complex, which makes it difficult for people to understand their immigration options. Often in immigration law, the stakes are high and the consequences of losing a case are severe. A good immigration lawyer knows the law, understands the immigration process, and relates to the client in order to provide the best service possible. Whether your case involves family-based petitions, deportation defense, or petitions based on employment, our attorneys will help you assess your immigration options so you can know the best course of action in your individual immigration case.

What Our Immigration Lawyers Do

Deportation.

We assist clients in deportation and removal proceedings. First, we find ways to stop deportation. If that option is not available, we help the client stay in this country as long as possible. Either way, our goal is to use our legal training and experience to achieve the most advantageous immigration result for the client.

Deferred Action for DREAMers

The government recently announced a process through which certain young people will be able to request a temporary employment authorization document (also known as a work permit) which they may use for employment and, in most states, a driver's license. To qualify, if you were born after June 15, 1981, entered the US before age 16 and prior to June 15, 2007, have not left the country for long periods of time and do not have certain convictions on your record, you may be eligible for this program. The requirements for evidence in these cases are very demanding and it is vital to apply for this benefit soon, as there is no guarantee that it will be available permanently. Let us help you determine if you are eligible for this process.

Family-Based Immigration

Too often we see clients that had avenues for immigration for their loved ones fail to act until it was too late, resulting in deportation of family members. We help clients find ways to keep their family together in the U.S., and to help bring other family members living abroad to this country. We handle fiancé visas, marriage-based immigration, 601 hardship waivers, and petitions for relatives.

I-601 Hardship Waivers

The I-601 Hardship Waiver process allows an immigrant to gain admission to the U.S. as a legal permanent resident despite unlawful presence if extreme hardship to a U.S. Citizen family member can be demonstrated. These waivers can be complicated, and each case carries its unique set of circumstances. Ourimmigration attorneyscan help you understand the process, and if the I-601 hardship waiver is right for your situation.

EB5 Visas

One emerging area of immigration that is quickly gaining popularity is the EB5 visa. Under the EB5 Visa, an immigrant is fast-tracked through the immigration gauntlet if the petitioner makes job-generating investments in the U.S. economy. EB5 Visas can be complicated and, if done incorrectly, expensive.

Employment-Based Immigration.

We help human resource managers and small-business owners wade through government immigration forms and red tape to recruit and employ the workers they need. We assist with H1B visas, L visas, J visas, Labor Certification and Reduction in Recruitment (PERM), EB1, EB2, EB3, EB5, and multinational managers and executives.

Asylum Petitions

McGregor handles both affirmative and defensive asylum cases. If you feel you may have an asylum claim, we encourage you to consult an immigration lawyer as soon as possible, as most asylum petitions must be filed within one year of entering the country.

Immigration Appeals

Immigration issues are complex, and often the result of the case is out of the hands of the attorney you hired. Fortunately, however, most immigration issues can be appealed to a higher authority. We think it advisable for most individuals to at least consider appealing any negative outcome.

We want to get to know them and hope they want to get to know us. We have found that clients want to speak with an attorney, not a secretary or paralegal. We believe that our clients deserve personalized attention. We make sure that an attorney handles your case and that you will have reasonable access to that attorney. We also understand that immigration issues can create a lot of stress, so we help alleviate that stress, not make it worse.
