We provide outstanding legal advice and representation for individuals, families, and employers seeking immigration benefits in the United States. We handle all types of immigration matters from nonimmigrant visas (for students, workers, and other temporary status) to family-based petitions and employment-based petitions for lawful permanent residence. We also specialize in applications for citizenship/naturalization, applications for adjustment of status, waivers of inadmissibility, deportation/removal defense (including cancellation of removal, asylum, and other forms of humanitarian relief), and much more.

If you plan to live permanently in the United States, there are critical reasons to apply for citizenship at your earliest opportunity. Goren & Barreto’s expert legal team will prepare your application, coach you through the test and interview, and make sure you understand any risks or potential issues in advance.

Family-based petitions allow for U.S. citizens or permanent residents to sponsor family members for lawful permanent residence (often referred to as a “green card”). Our firm can assist you with consular processing or adjustment of status to obtain your green card and avoid unnecessary delays.

There are a variety of ways to petition for permanent residence through employment in the Unites States. Many of these avenues may require the employer to obtain a labor certification from the Department of Labor. You will benefit from the support of an attorney at Goren & Barreto who can guide you through the process to obtain a visa.

We proudly represent non-immigrants—such as workers, students, tourists, and other visitors—in obtaining temporary (nonimmigrant) visas. Our services include applications for extensions of temporary stay, changes of status from one temporary visa category to another, and more.

If you or someone you know is facing deportation or removal, an attorney from Goren & Barreto will help protect your rights and provide the best possible strategy for you to remain in the U.S. with legal status. Our firm has successfully defended thousands of clients facing removal proceedings with applications for relief, including cancellation of removal, asylum, and more.

Immigration law often intersects with other practice areas, such as family law and criminal law. Goren & Barreto offers advice and representation in uncontested divorce, custody, guardianship, adoption, misdemeanor criminal or traffic offenses, post-conviction relief, and other legal matters that may have collateral immigration consequences.
