From Our Happy Clients

  • I've had an incredible experience working with John! He helped me a lot with my case. I've tried quite a few immigration attorneys and Mr Lawit was the best. He answered my questions very professionally without waving around. I can tell that John is an honest and responsible person!

    - Maxim Molokov

  • My experience with the Lawit law firm was very positive. Mr. Lawit discovered the fact that my grandfather who was a US citizen passed citizenship to my mother. Through my mother I was able to complete my immigration after 12 years. No other attorney I had spoken to was able to solve my immigration issues.

Non-Immigrant Visas

There are many reasons why people may wish to make short-term visits to the United States. Following the correct steps in these situations and abiding by all applicable immigration laws will help visitors, temporary workers, or others avoid complications that may affect their ability to stay in the country or return to the U.S. in the future. Our firm can assist with applications for student visas, tourist visas, and visas for temporary employees or investors.

Immigration

Immigrants who wish to live in the United States permanently will need to take a number of steps, including receiving sponsorship from a person in the U.S., applying for an immigrant visa, and providing documentation showing that they have met all requirements under the applicable immigration laws. Our attorneys can assist with visa applications, and we also help with adjustment of status and pursuing citizenship through naturalization.

Family-based Immigration

Sponsorship from family members in the United States is one of the most common avenues for immigration. The visas available in these cases will depend on whether the sponsor is a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident and their relationship with the immigrant(s) who will be coming to the U.S.

Employment-Based Immigration

A U.S.-based employer may provide sponsorship for foreign employees who wish to live permanently in the United States or who will be staying in the country temporarily. The availability of visas will often depend on whether an employee has extraordinary abilities or is considered a skilled or unskilled worker.

Humanitarian Relief

There are many cases where people may be concerned about the safety of themselves and their families if they are forced to leave the United States. Fortunately, protections are available to many people in these situations, including victims of human trafficking and other crimes, people who have experienced domestic violence, and immigrants who are likely to face persecution in their home countries due to their race, religion, nationality, or membership in certain groups.

Our lawyers are highly skilled and experienced in immigration cases involving humanitarian issues, and we have helped many people and families from around the world escape persecution.

Removal Defense

Immigrants who are currently living in the United States may be detained by immigration officials for a variety of reasons, including entering or remaining in the U.S. in violation of immigration laws or being convicted of certain types of crimes. When a person is involved in removal proceedings, they and their family members will want to understand the steps they can take to avoid deportation and continue living in the United States.

Our firm works to provide immigrants with a strong defense against deportation. We also provide representation in bond hearings to ensure that a person can be released during their case.

Appeals

Immigration issues can be complex, and they may involve officials from multiple government agencies. While unfavorable decisions made by these officials may be disheartening, they do not necessarily mean that a person will be unable to enter or remain in the United States. Our attorneys can help pursue different types of immigration appeals. These may include asking the Board of Immigration Appeals to review decisions made by immigration judges or requesting that the Administrative Appeals Office reconsider the denial of an application for a visa or green card. We work to ensure that our clients understand their options and take the correct steps to resolve immigration-related issues successfully.
