Immigration Lawyer Los Angeles

From being raised in an immigrant household to a Mexican mother and Pakistani father, attorney Danish Shahbaz understands many of the issues his immigration clients are facing, and is a passionate advocate for immigrant rights. Having seen firsthand how having a caring and knowledgeable legal advocate can be a deciding factor in whether someone will win or lose a case, Danish works with clients to find affordable and effective solutions to their immigration issues. Some of the legal services Danish and his team provide include:

1. Naturalization

The process of becoming a U.S. citizen ins naturalization. The road to citizenship can be challenging, and certain circumstances must be fulfilled to qualify. An immigration lawyer can guide you through this process.

2. Family Based Adjustment of Status

Adjustment of Status is one way that a noncitizen can obtain legal permanent residence in the U.S., or changing from a nonimmigrant visa (such as student or tourist) to a permanent resident Green Card holder. This adjustment of status can be “family based” if you have relatives who are lawful U.S. citizens.

3. Consular Processing

The process of applying for an immigrant visa through an Embassy or a consulate in a foreign country is Consular Processing. This process may take 4 to 12 months and may be preferred over adjustment of status due to the lower risk of refusal and shorter processing times.

4. Waivers

A waiver can allow someone to pursue a visa who is otherwise “inadmissible” to come to the United States. Waivers can be for hardship, criminal conviction, fraud, or unlawful presence.

5. Asylum

You may be able to obtain asylum if it is determined that you were persecuted in your home country. In order to obtain asylum, you must establish there is a reason for you not to return to your country of origin. One reason for asylum could be that you will be subject to persecution due to gender, race, religion, or nationality.

6. U-Visa

If you are the victim of or witness to a crime, you may be eligible for temporary nonimmigrant visa, and possibly eventually legal permanent residency and citizenship. In some circumstances, a crime overseas could qualify. A T-Visa may be available for people who come to the U.S. as a result of trafficking.

7. Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

If you come to the U.S. as a child, you may apply for deferred action. In California, DACA recipients may apply for work authorization and driver’s licenses.

Why Hire An Immigration Lawyer?

Because applications for immigration benefits are form-based, many are deceived into believing that the laws are quite simple. But like tax law, these forms are based upon an exceedingly complex set of laws. Courts and judges have compared these two bodies of law, finding that that immigration law is “second only to the Internal Revenue Code in complexity.” [1] Only an immigration attorney can ensure that you are following the correct pathway through the labyrinth of immigration options and procedures.

Please schedule a $200 consultation to go over your case.
