OUR IMMIGRATION PRACTICE
If you are facing difficulties regarding deportation, citizenship, green cards, or visas, your first step should be to contact E&L, LLP. Our main goal is to provide those who come to us for immigration help with dedicated care and attention. We treat each person as an individual and not as a case. We understand that the immigration process can be confusing and emotionally traumatizing for everyone involved and so we are here to walk with you through every stage of the process. The much preferred time to seek the services of an immigration attorney is before any documentation has been filed with either the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) or the Executive Office for Immigration Review, which includes the Immigration Court and the Board of Immigration Appeals. If an immigration benefit has been applied for and denied, it is often extremely difficult and sometimes impossible to obtain a new favorable decision or reversal on appeal. U.S. immigration attorney Arie Ebrahimian will give you a realistic view of your immigration options and how to succeed in reaching your chosen goals.
WARNING ON THE USE OF “IMMIGRATION CONSULTANTS” OR NOTARIES
The term “immigration consultant” includes notaries (or “notario publico”), travel agents, wedding chapel representatives, and any other person or agency that engages in the unauthorized practice of law. In most instances, these individuals are not lawyers, may not give legal advice or provide legal services, and do not necessarily have any special immigration training. Unfortunately, there are many dishonest immigration consultants who take advantage of immigrants by setting up elaborate schemes to steal their money. Even worse, many of the so-called immigration consultants know very little about immigration law. Also, when dishonest immigration consultants provide services, their work is often careless and inaccurate. This kind of negligent work seriously harms the immigrant. There are countless examples where immigrant victims lose their right to immigration benefits and/or are deported because of the poor work performed by a dishonest immigration consultant. To ensure that you have explored all of your immigration options and have not overlooked anything, you should at least attend a consultation with the attorneys at E&L, LLP.
