firm, we have access to extensive resources that not all businesses are
privy to. These resources do not come at the cost of small-firm representation,
either. In fact, our professional team focuses on providing individualized
attention to each and every client that we represent, no matter how complex
or standard the case may be.
What Makes Our Team Stand Out From the Rest
Pozo Goldstein has the advantage of having both a
former judge and former U.S. immigration prosecutors on staff. This gives us a significant advantage in court. Former judicial

former prosecuting experience gives us insight into how the other side thinks.

for our clients. Having an attorney that you can trust makes all the difference
in your case. When you're up against an immigration issue, you want
peace of mind and confidence that you are receiving the best defense possible.
Our staff speaks multiple languages, allowing us to serve clients from

Portuguese, Italian, Spanish or French, or Hebrew we can speak directly
to you. If you reside in New York and you or a loved one are currently
facing a difficult immigration matter, then Pozo Goldstein is ready to

Cases We Handle: Immigration Law Practice Areas
Our team of professionals has experience in every area of immigration law,
from visas to green cards to deportation. There are many reasons why an
individual may choose to come to the U.S., one of which is to seek asylum.
If they are facing prosecution in their home country, either physical,
political, or emotional, they may flee to the U.S. for safety. We are
here to ensure that you are not sent back to your home country if you
are facing these types of situations. If you are being threatened with
deportation, we will do our utmost to protect you. Whether it is because
allegedly overstayed your visa or were convicted of a crime, please allow
us to examine your case.
How Pozo Goldstein, LLP Can Help You
If you are dealing with issues involving visas, please do not hesitate
to contact us. If you are experiencing difficulties regarding being accepted
for a visa or there was a miscommunication regarding when your visa expired,
you need an experienced attorney on your side. If you are an employee
seeking to work in the U.S., we are able to help you regarding the issues
you will be facing.
For jobs in the U.S. where there is no worker in country able to successfully perform the job,
a labor certificate could be obtained to hire a worker from another country.
You could be granted a work visa which is different from permanent residency
but could still be difficult to secure.
For those who wish to become a
permanent resident of the U.S., a green card may be a good option. However, the process of applying
for a green card can prove to be fraught with difficulty. In order to
ensure that your case goes smoothly, contact us.
Other non-citizens do not only wish to retain residency, but want to apply
for citizenship. One of the most common ways to do so is through naturalization.
As the number of immigrants in the U.S. is increasing, so is the difficulty
in being granted naturalization. Authorities will make every effort to
find any excuse to deny an applicant.
Our goal is to supply you with every advantage, so that you have the best
possible chance of securing citizenship.
The Importance of Immigration in New York
Immigration continues to be a leading contributor to the growing population
of the U.S. In 2009 alone, more than 1.1 million foreigners obtained lawful permanent
residence in the U.S. According to the Department of Homeland Security,
the number of new green card holders in the country represented an increase
of 2.1% from the previous year, and a drastic 34.5% increase from 2000.
While a majority of immigrants were granted entry only temporarily, either
through a tourist visa or a business traveler's visa, there were still
quite a few that became permanent residents of the country.
Unfortunately, the numbers reported in Homeland Security's Yearbook
of Immigration Statistics 2009 do not reflect the many immigrants who
applied for citizenship or naturalization and were denied their requests.
If you were one of these individuals, there is legal help at Pozo Goldstein,
LLP. Our immigration lawyers regularly help those individuals who are
attempting to complete the immigration process successfully, as well as
those who've encountered problems along the way. We encourage you
to contact our office today for more information about how we can help
with your immigration process.
We Offer Aggressive Deportation Defense
One of the most frightening and intimidating situations that a person and
their family can face is the possibility of
deportation. You may be facing deportation for a number of different reasons: overstaying
your visa, being alleged of a crime or failure to fill out and submit
the proper documents. Many people throughout the State of New York are
facing deportation because of improper documentation.
We can walk you through the immigration process so that you don't miss
any of the vital documents required to keep you in the country. By working
with our firm, you have a fighting chance at staying in the United States
and avoiding deportation. Some of the options that may be available to
you include a waiver of excludability, cancellation of removal and deportation
suspension. Our law firm is well-versed in these areas.
How to Become a Citizen of the United States
If you are looking to obtain citizenship, then
you have come to the right place. Our skilled attorneys are experienced in helping clients become U.S.
citizens. There are many benefits to becoming a U.S. citizen, and our
firm wants to help you achieve those goals. The process of citizenship
can seem long and complex, but with the assistance of an immigration attorney
from our firm, the process can be made much easier.
Our job is to help clients navigate through the process the right way,
no matter what it takes. We also understand that all clients have unique
needs, which is why we are committed to providing individualized service
and customized representation. Whatever your needs, we want to help you
meet them. There is much at stake when it comes to immigration issues
such as citizenship, deportation and visas.
Don't risk putting your future in the hands of an attorney with less
experience, compassion and skill than the New York immigration attorneys
at Pozo Goldstein, LLP.
