Minneapolis Immigration Lawyers You Can Trust
The immigration system triggers anxiety and uncertainty, and even fear and heartbreak.

- Family-sponsored immigration
- Immigrant and non-immigrant visas
- Certificates of U.S. citizenship
- Deportation and removal proceedings
- Immigration bonds

- TPS and humanitarian visas
- Travel documents
- Green card renewal

- Deferred Action
- U Visas for Victims of Crimes
Fighting the immigration bureaucracy
With so much at stake, the U.S. immigration system can feel like a frustrating bureaucratic nightmare. The convoluted laws can often seem callous and unreasonable, and the enormous government agencies can appear impenetrable. Our attorneys maneuver persistently through the red tape to ease some of the immense burden of 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)
- Worldwide consulates and embassies
- Immigration court (EOIR)
- Federal court
- Detention facilities
Applying for a visa
Filling in your form is only the first step in your visa application process. The U.S. government sets strict requirements on qualifications and outlines inflexible procedures for filing. Mistakes on your application can lead to crucial delays and a potential denial with heartbreaking consequences. The disruption of your family, home, job and life in America, and in some cases, your freedom are at stake. Each type of visa comes with its own set of essential criteria, which your qualifications must precisely match. Our attorneys discuss your short-term and ultimate immigration goals to set up a long-range plan. We thoroughly analyze your situation to choose the appropriate pathway and meticulously gather evidence that proves each element of your eligibility. We review red flags — such as past arrests, multiple entries without permission, previous removals or deportations, false claims to citizenship or illegal employment — and address these potentially damaging issues from the start.
Constantly-changing immigration laws
Immigration policy is frequently under attack and the laws are often modified, creating an endlessly fluctuating immigration landscape with nonsensical roadblocks that tear families apart. It is critical to pay attention to the various agencies that administer immigration benefits for updates in procedures, forms and requirements. We stay current on shifts in immigration law and remain ready to act upon potential changes in the pipeline. To successfully advise you, we consider both the laws as they exist and the possibilities for beneficial — as well as harmful — reforms. We relentlessly pursue your case and develop unique solutions to complicated issues.
