Immigration Law

Immigration law encompasses the avenues and procedures available to temporarily or permanently come to the United States. It also includes the rules that dictate whether and how to remove individuals from the country. Among other responsibilities, immigration attorneys help clients obtain visas to travel to the United States, and they represent clients when the government seeks to deport them. Immigration attorneys may work in law firms or for government agencies, or they may work for public interest organizations.
