Firm Overview

What We Do

At Ellis Porter, we provide a full range of immigration legal services designed to enable employers, foreign professional workers and business investors, U.S. citizen sponsors and aspiring new citizens to reach their immigration goals.

How We Do It

To us, immigration is more than a process, it is an experience through which you are connected with your unique opportunities. Recognizing that the quality of your legal counsel goes a long way in determining whether your immigration experience is positive or not, we go out of our way to provide you:

Clear Guidance - We believe that all the immigration advice in the world won't do you any good unless it is practical and easy to understand.

Peace of Mind - We recognize that your immigration issues are never far from your mind, so we communicate with you frequently and candidly about where things stand and where they're headed, and we take the time to answer all of your questions along the way.

Personal Touch - We see our job as a unique opportunity to develop lasting relationships with interesting companies and fascinating people. As a result, we enjoy doing the little things to make you feel special.

How We See It

All in all, we think the best way to provide immigration legal services is to see your immigration experience, and opportunities, from a dynamic point of view: Yours. And by doing so, we put you in the best position to realize your unique opportunities in today's smaller world.
