Immigration Practice Areas Fighting for Justice for Immigrants One Case at a Time

We represent both individuals and companies in immigration matters. Individuals often face threat of removal of a loved one, lack of work documentation, help in applying for citizenship, or petitioning for a spouse, fiancé, child, parent, or sibling. Our business clients seek to sponsor a work visa or permanent residence for critical employees, to establish a business in the United States and create jobs for US workers, or are individuals with exceptional and extraordinary abilities whose work is in the national interest of the United States. We also support business clients by conducting I-9 employment eligibility verification compliance audits and assist with developing processes for the implementation of new regulations issued by various U.S. government agencies affecting immigration practices, including E-verify procedures.

We represent clients before USCIS, ICE, CBP, State Department, Board of Immigration Appeals, Department of Labor and the federal courts. We handle a broad spectrum of immigration cases, including:

Department of Homeland Security Announces Deferred Action for DREAMers

Deferred Action is based on an exercise of prosecutorial discretion,which provides no guarantees of renewal, and no path to citizenship. Even if an applicant meets all the requirements, there is no guarantee that the applicant will be granted Deferred Action because it is based on discretion. In case of denial, there is only supervisory review, and no appellate rights or other safeguards. Even if the Deferred Action is granted, this grant may be withdrawn or not renewed at any time. In addition, as a result of the application, immigration and Customs Enforcement will have all the information necessary to initiate removal proceedings against the applicant if the policy is changed.

Someone rear-ended my car last spring and I was injured. Peter and Sofia Zneimer and they staff were professional and were always available by phone.

Overall, a very good trusted experience. Natig M.

I have dealt with Sofia Zneimer since 2009. She is a great lawyer and has helped me tremendously in navigating the process of green card. She is a great resource to have by your side. She is easy to reach. She responds very quickly, which was very important for me. If she can’t answer the question the same day, she does let you know that she is working on it. I would have no hesitation in recruiting her. Hemant S.
