Immigration law

Whether you’re applying for a visa, a green card, citizenship or facing deportation, our expert immigration attorneys can assist you. We have a proven track record in all areas of immigration law, from helping to reunite families to enabling businesses to compete in an increasingly global marketplace. Consult with a Dozier Miller immigration attorney for an honest, knowledgeable assessment of your immigration options.

The Great Seal of the United States reads “E Pluribus Unum.” It is a Latin phrase that means “out of many, one.” Since its founding, the United States has been a nation of immigrants. We continue to welcome immigrants and visitors, and have many avenues for gaining lawful status in the U.S. It’s critical that citizens of foreign countries understand the complex processes involved with visiting or immigrating to the U.S. so their admission provides all the benefits available.

CITIZENSHIP & NATURALIZATION

If you weren’t born in the U.S. or born abroad to U.S. citizens, you must complete the naturalization process to acquire U.S. citizenship. Our citizenship and naturalization team are experts in helping immigrants navigate the complicated forms and applications involved.

GREEN CARDS

There are many routes to acquiring a green card, from having a relative or U.S. employer petition on your behalf to filing for yourself as a refugee or asylum seeker. At Dozier Miller, we will take the time to learn your unique situation and advise you as to the best course of action for you.

VISAS

One of the reasons people are turned away at ports of entry is an incorrect or invalid visa. It’s absolutely critical to understand what type of visa you need and to ensure your visa is current. Due to the complexities of applying for a visa, an attorney specializing in visas is essential.

DEPORTATION

It requires an experienced and relentless deportation defense attorney to avoid deportation and find relief from removal. At Dozier Miller, we have decades of experience defending and guiding clients. We will be by your side.

WORK PERMITS

Not matter what field you’re in or how long you plan to stay, all foreign workers must first obtain permission to lawfully work in the U.S. There are several different classes and categories of work permits (or work-related visas), and each class has its own application process and requirements. We’re familiar with them all and can help guide you.
