Assisting Clients With All Immigration Issues
Families, business people, and individuals from all walks of life rely on the Law Offices of Mark J. Shmueli for experienced immigration representation. Whether you are worried about entering or working in the U.S. legally, want to become a citizen or are facing deportation, we will provide the strong representation you need.
Legal Immigration to the United States
There are many legal ways to enter the United States and stay here. In fact, many individuals have multiple immigration options. Whether you want to come to the U.S. or you are already here, we will listen to your goals and explain all of your options:
- We handle all aspects of family immigration, including initial visa applications, green cards, petitions for removal of conditions, and Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) petitions.
- We assist artists and athletes with O-1 visa applications and maintaining legal status while here.
- We assist companies by guiding employees through the L-1 “intercompany transfer of manager” visa applications and through the green card process.
- We assist those who have fled physical and/or mental harm in preparing and filing applications for asylum, withholding of removal, and relief under the Convention Against Torture (CAT).
Students, employees, and family members alike must maintain their status according to the terms of their visas. We will advise you on how to maintain legal status and do our best to provide solutions if you have fallen out of status.
Becoming a Citizen
Naturalization is exciting: it is often the culmination of a journey through the maze of immigration regulations! The Law Office of Mark Shmueli has helped individuals naturalize who have had criminal convictions, have had to fight for permanent residency in immigration court, or reside overseas. Mark has spoken at many conferences regarding citizenship, has co-authored a resource book on naturalization, and is regarded by other immigration attorneys as a teacher in this field.

Once you have successfully entered the U.S., the thought of deportation can be devastating. Whether you have been charged with a crime, overstayed your visa, had an asylum application denied, or violated the status of your visa, we will explain you legal options and fight the deportation.
