What Are the Most Common Immigration Issues That Lawyers Help With?


What is an immigration lawyer, and what do they do? Immigration lawyers are lawyers that specialize in immigration and residency issues within the United States. Immigration lawyers in Baltimore and the wider country represent their clients in court in matters of residency or citizenship. Still, the duties of an immigration lawyer are wide and varied. Here’s a little of what we do at The Law Office of Raymond O. Griffith.

Business Immigration

Business immigration is one of the largest and most actively evolving parts of law. Immigration lawyers deal with business immigration, which is the act of immigrating to a new country to work. Because the United States allows foreign nationals to become citizens via work, this is a popular area of law and requires an experienced immigration lawyer to help you navigate. When you work with The Law Office of Raymond O. Griffith, we will fight for your rights to live and work in the United States and help you navigate challenges to your working visa. There’s no reason not to get in touch with us today.

Establishing Permanent Residency

Immigration lawyers will help you secure and defend your “green card,” which is a card that authorizes you to live and work in the United States for a two-year period. After those two years, you can apply for permanent residency in the country, and that residency comes up for renewal every 10 years. An immigration lawyer will help you navigate all of this.

Citizenship Hearings 

Citizenship is the dream of many foreign nationals and immigrants, and an immigration lawyer from The Law Office of Raymond O. Griffith can help you achieve that dream. Because the process of naturalization is so deeply nuanced, it’s vital that you work with an experienced immigration lawyer, who can help you navigate the complexities of the United States naturalization process.

Deportation Defense

Oftentimes, immigration lawyers will help defend their clients against erroneous lawsuits or charges that could lead to their deportation. Deportation can happen for a number of reasons you might not even be aware of, making it vital that you speak to one of our experienced immigration lawyers if you receive a deportation notice.

Immigration lawyers provide a valuable service to the people of the United States. At The Law Office of Raymond O. Griffith, we only hire experienced, compassionate attorneys who understand the vast complexities of the American legal system and how it all relates to your life as an immigrant.
