Immigration Law

Laws regarding immigration and citizenship in the United States are complicated. This is especially true for those who do not speak English as a first language. If your immigration status has been called into question, or you are applying for citizenship and afraid the process will not go smoothly, the experienced immigration attorneys at the Law Firm of Emdin & Russell, LLP are here to assist you.

Why Do You Need an Immigration and Deportation Lawyer in New York City?

The ongoing changes in immigration policy have made it increasingly difficult in recent years to obtain a work visa or gain permanent residency in the United State. New York has recently made an effort to make the process easier by offering immigrants municipal identification cards. The program was launched in 2015 by Mayor Bill de Blasio and offers all residents – regardless of immigration status – a form of valid ID that makes interactions with city government and law enforcement agencies possible.

Despite New York’s efforts to make life easier, those applying for citizenship status still face harsh scrutiny and heightened background checks at the federal level, which can create long delays. An experienced immigration attorney can ensure the process remains on track and that you are not denied your request due to a technicality or other unfair reason.

At the Law Firm of Emdin & Russell, we can help you gain access to temporary employment, secure a visa or family-based green card, get a waiver, or ensure your naturalization case goes smoothly. We’ll also represent those accused of being in the country without documentation and help you throughout the removal proceedings.

We’ve worked with individuals, as well as companies that need employment visas for their employees. Whether your reasons for wanting to be in the United States are personal or professional, we can help.

Why It’s Important to Work with an Immigration Attorney
