Immigration Law

Helping you with your immigration issues

Whether your goal is to live permanently in the United States or to work here temporarily, whether you are an undocumented worker, a high-powered executive, or a citizen adopting internationally or marrying your foreign fiance, Edwin R. Rubin, Attorney at Law has the experience to help you. For 30 years, I have helped clients with the full spectrum of immigration issues, including:
-Employment-based immigration
-Family-sponsored immigration
-Nonimmigrant visas
-Certificates of U.S. citizenship
-Deportation and removal proceedings
-Immigration bonds
-Asylum and refugee status
-TPS and humanitarian visas
-International adoptions
-Travel documents
-Green card renewal
-Representation at USCIS interviews

Understanding the immigration bureaucracy:
The U.S. immigration system is comprised of a complex web of intricate laws and vast bureaucratic agencies, each with its own rules, regulations and policies. I maneuver comfortably through the red tape to bring you the best possible outcomes when dealing with:
-Department of Homeland Security (DHS)
-U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)
-U.S. Border Patrol (CBP)
-U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (USICE)
-Department of Labor (DOL)
-Worldwide consulates and embassies
-Immigration court
-Federal court
-Detention facilities

Applying for a visa:
Applying for a visa takes more than sending forms to USCIS. The U.S. government places strict requirements on qualifications and outlines inflexible procedures for filing. Mistakes on your application can lead to crucial delays and a potential denial. Each type of visa comes with its own set of essential criteria, which your qualifications must precisely match. I discuss your short-term and ultimate immigration goals to set up a long-range plan. I thoroughly analyze your situation to choose the appropriate pathway, and meticulously gather evidence that supports each element of your eligibility. I anticipate complications and troubleshoot before problems occur.

Constantly-changing immigration laws:
Immigration policy is under constant debate and the laws are frequently modified. In addition, the various government agencies that administer immigration benefits regularly update their procedures, forms and guidelines. Edwin R. Rubin, Attorney at Law stays current on the shifts in immigration law and updated on potential changes in the pipeline. To successfully advise you, I consider not only the laws as they exist but the possibility of beneficial - as well as harmful - reforms. Fastidious and dedicated, I relentlessly pursue your case and develop unique solutions to complicated issues.
