New York Immigration Attorneys Immigration law is all we do - and we can help you apply for a visa or green card, become a U.S. citizen, or defend you from deportation. This guide explains what our New York City immigration attorneys can do for you.

What a New York City Immigration Attorney Can Do for You

Our New York City immigration attorneys handle a wide range of immigration issues, including:

  • Family immigration
  • Visas
  • Green cards
  • Naturalization
  • Business immigration
  • Asylum
  • Deportation defense

Here's a closer look at each.

Family Immigration in NYC

Some people are eligible to immigrate to the United States based on the relationships they share with U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents. We can help you with all kinds of family immigration, including K-1 fiancé visas, marriage visas, and adjustment of status petitions. We can also help you apply for a marriage-based green card, business green cards and more.


There are many different types of visas, and our New York City immigration attorneys can help you apply for the one that's right for your situation. We can help with tourist visas, student visas, work visas, and more.

Getting a Green Card in New York City or Brooklyn

A green card gives you the right to live and work permanently in the United States. Not everyone is eligible for a green card, but if you are, our New York City immigration attorneys can help you apply for a green card through family, employment, or other channels.

Green card eligibility depends on several factors, including your relationship with the person sponsoring you. (Most people can't apply for their own green cards; they need a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident to "sponsor" them.) We can evaluate your situation and determine whether you're eligible for a green card, and if you are, we'll put together a case that helps you get the best possible outcome.


U.S. citizenship comes with a lot of benefits - including the right to vote, serve on jury duty, and apply for certain government jobs. If you're eligible for naturalization, our New York City immigration attorneys can help you through the process.

To become a U.S. citizen, you must first be a lawful permanent resident (green card holder) and meet other requirements. After you meet eligibility requirements, we'll help you fill out and submit your application. (And when you're granted citizenship, we'll be there to help you celebrate!)

New York City Business Immigration Services

New York Immigration Attorneys Investors often qualify for the EB program, which lets people apply for green cards based on their investments in the United States' economy. However, there are several other types of business immigration - including visas and green cards available to foreign workers.

When a company wants to hire foreign talent, it needs to meet very specific requirements set forth by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). And businesses must sponsor the workers they want to bring to the United States. Our firm can help you with every aspect of business immigration, including DOL certifications, so that you can bring in the workers you need to help your company grow.

Asylum in New York City

If you're facing persecution in your home country, you may be eligible for asylum in the United States. To qualify, you must meet very specific criteria set forth by U.S. law - and you must apply within one year of arriving in the United States.

Our New York City immigration attorneys can help you determine whether you qualify for asylum, and if you do, we'll help you put together a strong application so that you can get the relief you need.

Deportation Defense in NYC

If you've been ordered removed from the United States, you have the right to fight the order in court. And if you win your case, you can stay in the United States.

Deportation proceedings are complex, and the stakes are high. That's why it's important to have an experienced attorney on your side. Our New York City immigration attorneys can help you navigate the deportation process, and we'll do everything we can to help you stay in the United States.

My asylum case worried me very much. After speaking with Mr. Smallcomb, I was much surer that everything would be done ok. He and his staff helped me to file and get my work card. I was lucky to have their help and the price was lower than most lawyers. Adam S.
