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. Thomas Law Firm, PLC will draft the written, legal submissions, which accompany your application package to argue why you should be approved for your benefit. Our law firm will also ensure that your supporting documentation complies with the government’s standards to ensure that your application is processed without delays.

We reduce your risks and save you time and money by getting it right the first time.

Testimonials

  • “If you want the best, he is it!”

    The Most Honest Attorney. My wife and I worked with two other attorneys before Matthew, but our case never seemed to go anywhere. The other guys took our money and left us empty handed. We are so thankful that a neighbor recommended him to us. He is very knowledgeable, kind and above all honest. His staff is also very organized and very attentive. My wife needed a waiver. Other offices said we didn't have a chance. But he got the waiver approved and now my wife is a resident. He changed our lives. If you want the best, he is it!

  • “The Ultimate Immigration Attorney”

    The ultimate immigration attorney. We originally saw another lawyer in 2008 before the I601A came into effect. He explained the I601 at the time and talked to us about having to prove extreme hardship but was not helpful. In 2014, when the I601A was an option, this time we researched on the internet and found Matthew Thomas. After reading many positive reviews, we thought we would give him a try. By the time we walked out of the initial consultation, I knew he was our guy. My wife and I felt like a weight had been lifted off of our shoulders after only speaking to him for 20 minutes. He was confident yet not arrogant. His team was extremely organized and kept us on task throughout the process of the I130 and the I601A. They did not stop after the I-30 and the I601A were approved.....they continued to work with us all the way through our visit to Ciudad Juarez (only one week and we were back legally in the U.S.) even up until the time my wife received her Green Card several weeks after Matt and his team respond to e-mails very quickly; a couple of times Matt himself even responded on a Sunday morning. They have changed our family's future in a way they will never fully know. I highly recommend Matthew Thomas as your immigration attorney. They even have an interest free payment plan with reasonable rates. What are you waiting for, change your future now!

  • “Best Choice Ever!”

    Best Choice Ever! I very highly recommend Thomas Law Firm! I spoke with about 11 other attorneys before finding Thomas Law and they were by far the most knowledgeable and professional. I had questions that no other attorney knew how to answer. Not only did Thomas Law answer my questions, but they handled my complicated case and my husband now has his U.S Visa with his green card on its way :). We are forever grateful for the great work that they did for us.

  • “I hired the right person”

    I hired the right person. Having at our side a lawyer serious, competent and that charges reasonable fees make much difference to who is seeking the adjust of status with the U.S. immigration authorities. I say this with knowledge of cause. [...]
