Immigration Law
Alvarez de Bennett Law practices in all areas of immigration law.
At Alvarez de Bennett Law, we realize the importance of paying close attention to details and understand the "personal" component of each of our immigration cases. We believe it important to stay up to date on the various government offices and agencies involved. Also, we make sure to use the latest forms introduced by USCIS so that our cases are not delayed. We understand the need to provide timely and efficient immigration services to our clients. We are licensed to represent immigration clients in all 50 states.

Alvarez de Bennett Law has represented clients from all over the world in immigration cases. Here are some of the countries that our clients call home:

Costa Rica, China, Mexico, Germany, South Korea, Peru, Portugal, Vietnam, France, Australia, Canada, Pakistan, Russia, El Salvador, Bangladesh, Kenya, Guatemala and more!

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

Coming from a diverse background, attorneys and staff at Alvarez de Bennett Law find fulfillment in helping others achieve the American Dream.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others

We are highly compassionate and truly "care" about each of our cases.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

We are very personable and provide good customer service. We do our best to not over-book incoming client appointments so we can assure that we are able to attend to our clients without distractions or making them feel like they are "one" of "many" clients.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

We are more than happy to assist clients who prepare their immigration forms on their own and provide input on how to file for a consultation. If the client hires us to take over, we offer a discounted rate if the client has prepared the forms on their own.

Does your firm provide pro bono legal services or otherwise participate in your community?

About 15% of our practice is dedicated to pro-bono or low-bono clients who cannot generally afford legal services. We understand that the legal process (especially for immigrants in the U.S.) is very expensive and that it can be very hard to pay immigration filing fees on top of attorney fees. We take into consideration the type of case and current case load and also network among other organizations to assist those in need of pro-bono or low-bono legal services.
