YOUR DREAM OUR TEAM ® Over 50 Years of Combined Legal Experience

Gardner Law and Alan Gordon Immigration Law are now one firm: Gardner Gordon. We’ve merged with the first immigration law firm in the Carolinas, Alan Gordon Immigration Law, in order to provide thoughtful and strategic immigration solutions for businesses and individuals. We help clients from all over the world and in widely different situations resolve their immigration concerns.

Your Immigration Attorneys

Our immigration attorneys are dedicated to aiding businesses and individuals across the Carolinas. As a full-service immigration firm, we are equipped to handle any type of case — we can help businesses obtain work visas, establish permanent residency for foreign employees and even help U.S. citizens secure visas for family. The team at Gardner Gordon shares more than 50 years of collective legal experience. We are all fluent in Spanish.

Our lawyers understand what’s at stake. We help:

  • Businesses seeking to obtain temporary work visas or to sponsor their employees for permanent residency

  • Investors seeking to enter the U.S. to start or purchase a business

  • Green card holders pursuing U.S. citizenship through naturalization

  • Immigrants at risk of deportation who require removal defense

  • U.S. citizens who wish to obtain visas for family members living overseas

We take a personal interest in each case. Our clients are never just a case number.

Our Raleigh immigration lawyers proudly and zealously advocate for their clients. Our team can help you navigate the hurdles of the U.S. immigration system, and avoid costly missteps. Let Gardner Gordon represent you today.
