Immigration Lawyer in Lee County
At Gardner Gordon, we believe in your right to come to the United States—whether for travel, for work, or for life. Your path, however, may be full of legal and financial obstacles. In recent years, annual caps have decreased while wait times have increased. The smallest errors can lead to delays or outright denials, and we understand how devastating this can be if your future depends on an accepted application.
Our Lee County immigration attorneys have spent more than 15 years developing the skills and resources needed to assist you. We want to be your trusted advocates throughout this challenging process, and our goal is to help you obtain the immigration benefit you need in as little time as possible.
Our Immigration Services
When we founded our firm, we decided to focus exclusively on immigration law because we wanted to provide nothing short of exemplary service for every client. Focusing our practice in this way has allowed us to handle a wide variety of cases. When you bring your immigration issue to our firm, therefore, you can trust that we have the experience needed to help you navigate this complex legal terrain.
At Gardner Gordon, we handle the following types of cases:
- Family-Based or Employment-Based Immigration. Most individuals become lawful permanent residents (green card holders) through sponsorship by a family member or employer. We can help you file this petition and submit all necessary evidence to ensure you have the highest possible likelihood of success.
- Citizenship & Naturalization. To become a U.S. citizen, you will need to be a lawful permanent resident and successfully complete the naturalization process. We can guide you through every step of this extensive journey.
- I-9 & E-Verify Compliance. As a U.S. employer, you must take several steps to comply with immigration law. Whether your goal is to develop a compliance strategy or handle an audit, we have the knowledge and resources needed to minimize your liability and protect your business.
- Nonimmigrant Visas. A nonimmigrant visa is temporary. It is reserved for a wide variety of visitors, such as students, athletes, artists, investors, business travelers, and employees. Some nonimmigrant visas are humanitarian, reserved specifically for foreign nationals who have endured abuse or serious crimes. We can listen closely to your situation and long-term goals to determine which visa is right for you.
- Removal Defense, Detention, & Bond. If you are up against ICE or another enforcement agency, we can provide aggressive representation and dedicated counsel. We assist detained individuals, those facing removal proceedings, and their family members during the most challenging periods of their lives.
- Federal Litigation & Appeals. Not all decisions are final. If you find yourself in court or need to overturn an unfair denial, we are ready to support you. We have years of litigation experience and know what it takes to file a successful appeal.
