Immigration Lawyer

On July 3, 2013, The Supreme Court struck down an integral part (Section 3) of DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act). As a result, same-sex couples who are legally married will obtain equal rights to the benefits under federal law. IMPORTANTLY, this includes immigration benefits and these benefits, as per Janet Napolitano (Secretary of Homeland Security), will be available immediately.

Jadoo & Zalenski provides comprehensive legal representation for clients with U.S. immigration law concerns. With family members of our own who came to this country from abroad, we understand the importance and legal urgency of immigration matters. We help people obtain immigrant visas, file petitions for permanent residency status, and defend against deportation.

Employment Visas - Family Visas

Contact us to schedule a consultation regarding temporary visas, family immigration, or naturalization and citizenship. We particularly welcome inquiries from employers in need of employment-based immigration services for their employees. Our immigration services include:

Stop Deportation and Removal Proceedings

We represent clients before the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the U.S. Department of Justice, the U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL), the Executive Office of Immigration Review (EOIR), Immigration Court and the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA).

Can You Do it Yourself?

Some of our clients have tried to resolve their immigration issues directly with the USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services). However, it is easy to make mistakes that end up costing precious time, and those delays may be much more expensive than professional immigration legal services. Our immigration clients find that it is worthwhile to ensure that family-based visas and employment-based visas are done correctly the first time, to maximize the chances of a successful outcome as quickly as possible.
