Immigration Law and Criminal Defense

Why should I hire an immigration lawyer?

Because of the complexity of immigration law it is often difficult for laypersons to determine eligibility for certain immigration benefits or what might be best for their particular situation. For example, one type of status might be faster to obtain but might prevent you from bringing relatives.

Thomas Law Firm, PLC can actually save you time and money by looking at your needs and ensuring your chosen immigration status is right for your situation. A lawyer can also make sure your application is as complete and thorough as possible. Incomplete or erroneous applications may result in untimely delays, rejections or even being permanently barred from the United States.

Why do I need to use the services of an immigration lawyer and why can I not apply on my own?

Immigration law is very sensitive, complex and constantly changing. If handled improperly, your case could be denied and you could risk being placed in removal proceedings or being permanently barred from the United States.

Our law firm will assist you in a professional and orderly manner to supply exactly the information expected by the relevant agencies and authorities. We assist you to prepare and submit your application forms and ensuring that they have been filled out correctly.
