IMMIGRATION LAW SERVICES
Our firm’s work centers on immigration law, with a focus on removal defense, family-based immigration, and naturalization. We pride ourselves on giving you honest answers, even if the information isn’t what you were hoping for or expecting to hear.
Facing deportation from the United States is a scary thing for you and your family. We give you a free evaluation of your situation and thoroughly explain your options. We will take all the time we need to map out your options and give you our professional opinion on each step. We won’t tell you what you want to hear, but, rather, we will tell you the truth about your case.
We understand how important it is to keep your family together—we have families too. Tell us who you want to sponsor, and we will give you realistic expectations in terms of the process, wait time, and cost.
There’s no time like the present to ensure you can remain in the United States for the rest of your life and enjoy all the privileges reserved for United States citizens. We make this process as simple as possible, and we deal with all the paperwork necessary to achieve this goal. Perhaps you’ve been thinking about becoming a citizen for years, but you figured being a legal permanent resident is enough. While holding a green card is good, being a citizen is always a better choice. Or perhaps you haven’t become a citizen because you’ve heard that your criminal record will render you ineligible. Come to see us for a free consultation, and we will separate truth from fiction and help clarify any misconceptions you might have that are hindering you from taking that final step to becoming a United States citizen.
CRIMINAL LAW SERVICES
We also help noncitizens navigate the justice system. If you or a loved one has been accused of a crime in the State of Nevada, we encourage to reach out as soon as possible.
The criminal courts can be intimidating, but with us at your side, they won’t be. We will shed light on the complex processes and give you honest and straightforward advice on how to deal with the criminal charges you are facing. While coming in contact with the criminal justice system is rarely a good thing, it does not mean that life as you know it will change forever. Allow us to discuss your options with you. We believe in honest and direct communication, and whether your case is in the district court, justice court, or municipal court, we will guide you through the process.
Pursuing a personal injury case can be daunting on its own. If one has immigration concerns as well, the thought of filing a personal injury case may not seem like an option. We can help you navigate this process.
Accidents and injuries can have a profound impact on your life. In addition to our immigration expertise, we also offer assistance for personal injury claims. We know that dealing with a personal injury can be overwhelming, and we are committed to ensuring that you receive the justice and compensation you deserve. Whether you have been injured in a car accident, workplace incident, slip and fall, or any other type of accident, we are here to help.
While our primary focus is immigration law, we believe in providing comprehensive support to our clients. You don't have to face this challenging time alone. We are here to fight for your rights and help you seek the justice and compensation you deserve.

CITIZENSHIP GRANTED Matter of A.M.B. (2023)
A.M.B. is a native and citizen of Ukraine who had maintained lawful permanent resident status for more than three decades. He was afraid to apply for naturalization because of criminal history he had from over a decade ago. When he consulted with Alex, Alex carefully reviewed the relevant criminal records (and helped secure those that A.M.B. had not been able to provide) and determined that A.M.B. would still be able to establish good moral character in accordance with section 316(a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act. Less than three months after filing his Application for Naturalization (“Form N-400”), A.M.B. was approved for citizenship. A.M.B. is now a United Stats citizen.
K1 VISA ISSUED & STATUS ADJUSTED TO LAWFUL PERMANENT RESIDENCE Matter of M.G. (2023)
M.G., is a native and citizen of Haiti, who was engaged to a United States citizen and wanted to know if it would be possible to come to the United States as a fiancé. Alex walked M.G. and her fiancé though the process, explaining the elements that needed to be satisfied first to secure approval of the Petition for Alien Fiancé(e) (“Form I-129F”) and then to secure issuance of the K-1 visa. Alex worked with them to see the process through to completion, and M.G. successfully entered the United States as a K-1 immigrant. Marrying her fiancé within the 90-day period, M.G. and her husband then sought Alex’s assistance on adjusting M.G.’s status to lawful permanent residence. Alex helped them prepare an adjustment of status filing that was sufficient to meet the requirements set out in section 245(a), and the agency found that the filing itself was sufficient to establish M.G.’s eligibility for the benefit sought. Finding an interview unnecessary, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) granted M.G.’s adjustment application. M.G. is now a lawful permanent resident of the United States.
LAWFUL PERMANENT RESIDENCE STATUS GRANTED Matter of M.M.P. & Matter of A.C.A. (2023)
M.M.P. and A.C.A. are natives and citizens of Mexico who had entered the United States as tourists many decades ago and had long since overstayed their respective authorized periods of stay. They had a United States citizen son in common, and after this son turned twenty-one years of age, they consulted with Alex to see if it would be possible to obtain permanent residence on the basis of a family-petition without having to leave the United States. Alex explained that each was able to apply for adjustment of status under section 245(a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (hereinafter referred to as “the Act”) despite having overstayed their respective authorized periods of stay for decades. Many of the grounds of ineligibility set out in section 245(c) of the Act do not apply to “immediate relatives,” and Alex explained that each qualified as an “immediate relative” for immigration law purporses. Accordingly, Alex prepared comprehensive filings for both M.M.P. and A.C.A. that were sufficient to demonstrate statutory eligibility and overcome all the prospective grounds of inadmissibility. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) granted both M.M.P.’s and A.C.A.’s adjustment applications without even having either come in for an interview. M.M.P. and A.C.A. are now lawful permanent residents of the United States.
WHAT I ADMIRE SO MUCH ABOUT ALEX IS HIS HONESTY
“I am originally from China, and I have been a lawful permanent resident of the United States for many years now. I was initially denied citizenship for a very complicated legal reason. Alex has helped make sense of all this to me. He first helped me through the administrative appeal, and when that was not successful, he filed a lawsuit in federal court. What I admire so much about Alex is his honesty through all of this. He explained from the outset that this is going to be an uphill battle. He predicted the denial of the administrative appeal and said that the only place we had a chance of gaining ground is in a federal court. Another thing I really like about Alex is that he shares all of his work product with me. This is why I am able to understand everything that is going on. Everything he files with the court, he shares with me. If I don’t understand something, he explains it well to me. I really feel like a have a champion on my side with Alex as my attorney.” – Client
