Assertive California Immigration Lawyer Fights for Your Rights to Live and Work in the United States

Determined advocate based in the Palm Springs area assists immigrants and their families

The United States has long been a haven for people from other countries seeking a better way of life. Whether you wish to work here, become a permanent resident, fight deportation or help family members join you in America, you may need a forceful advocate who can help clear the way. At Gregor Woodward Law, I have the experience and dedication to help you realize your goal. My firm understands that the laws governing immigration can be confusing and frustrating to those who seek to come to these shores or stay here legally. I am committed to making the path to employment, residence, citizenship or travel a less circuitous route for those I represent.

Knowledgeable immigration lawyer handles a range of issues

The U.S. immigration system comprises a complex web of intricate laws and bureaucratic red tape. I am intimately familiar with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the U.S. government agency that administers the country's immigration and naturalization system, and I draw on that knowledge to fight for my clients in a full range of immigration matters, which may include:

  • Employment-based immigration
  • Family-sponsored immigration
  • Nonimmigrant visas
  • Naturalization
  • Certificates of U.S. citizenship
  • Deportation and removal proceedings
  • Immigration bonds
  • International adoptions
  • Travel documents
  • Green card applications and renewals
  • Representation at USCIS interviews

In each of these matters, you can trust in my tireless advocacy as I help with applications, petitions, forms, and hearings to guide you through every step of the process.

Skilled attorney offers thorough assistance for visa applications

Applying for a work, travel or residency visa can be a daunting task. The U.S. government places strict requirements on qualifications for individual visas and outlines inflexible procedures for filing. Mistakes on your application can lead to crucial delays and potential denials. I will analyze your short- and long-term goals to set up a long-range plan. By thoroughly understanding your situation, I can gather evidence that supports each element of your eligibility. My experience allows me to anticipate complications in the application process and troubleshoot before problems occur.

Tenacious adviser provides guidance for refugees and asylum seekers

I also assist those who seek safety in the United States through refugee or asylum status. To be considered a refugee, a foreign national living outside their native country must be able to prove that returning there poses a risk of persecution. People seeking asylum in the United States must already reside here and prove that deportation or removal to their home country presents the same threat that a refugee faces. If returning to your homeland presents a risk to you or your family, I zealously represent your right to seek refuge here.

Informed counselor stays current on changing immigration law

Immigration policy is under constant debate, and the laws are frequently modified. To complicate matters, the USCIS regularly updates its procedures, forms and guidelines. I stay current on the shifts in immigration law and updated on potential changes in the pipeline. To successfully advise you, I consider not only the laws as they exist but the possibility of beneficial — as well as harmful — reforms. I am dedicated to pursuing your case and achieving your goals in even the most complicated situations.
