Who we are

Immigration Attorney

We are a law firm specializing in providing cost effective, quality services to the immigrant community. Our services run the gamut of the immigration field, which means that we can help virtually any client with their immigration needs.

The firm represents employers and foreign nationals with both “non-immigrant” (temporary) and immigrant (green) visas. Examples of the types of nonimmigrant visas work that we do includes H-1B (Professionals), E-1 (Treaty Trader), E-2 (Treaty Investor), L Visas (Intracompany Transferees) (O-1 Extraordinary Ability), B (Visitor) and many more. We also provide service in obtaining changes and extension of status and we help TPS status holders maintain their status.

Our services are not limited to temporary non-immigrant visas, rather we process immigrant visas “green cards” as well. Examples of the types of employment-based services that we offer are PERM labor certifications, multinational managers, or foreign nationals with extraordinary ability or other distinguishing credentials. Further we represent clients who are immigrating based on family ties to the United States such as spouses, children and siblings of U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents. Many of these cases, such as spouses of US citizens are processed in the United States but a significant portion are not, and require consular processing. We provide consular processing services for those matters that cannot be processed in the US.

We also offer legal services to clients who are facing removal and seeking relief in the form of Cancellation of Removal, Voluntary Departure, Political Asylum and Cancellation and/or Withholding of Removal as well as waivers, such as 601 waivers for unlawful presence and prior criminal convictions as well as 212(d)(3) waivers for other forms of excludability.

James G. Martin Immigration, PA endeavors to provide the client with a comprehensive strategy to meet their goals and needs in the area of immigration. We seek to ensure that each step of the way will lead to the next step as smoothly and efficiently as possible. We make every effort to avoid the seemingly invisible traps and pitfalls that the system contains.  Each case offers its own opportunities and complexities and we will leave no stone unturned in seeking a solution. Having said that, some cases simply do not have a solution with the manner in which the immigration laws are structured.  If that is the case, we will honestly tell you that as well.

Having dealt with the immigration system in a professional and personal capacity for over twenty years, we can understand how difficult and frustrating it can be.However the saying goes that a journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step.  Call today for an initial consultation:
