Immigration Law Practice

Gambourg Read’s provides customized immigration law advice and assistance primarily in connection with high-level corporate and professional positions and to individuals with a need for personalized guidance and representation in obtaining and maintaining legal immigration status in the United States.

When we believe an injustice is being done, we are prepared to fight for our clients — in federal court, if necessary.

Our work is not limited to the administrative process of immigration. While we eagerly help individuals and families understand the process of obtaining citizenship, New York city residence or a green card, we consider complex cases to be the strongpoint of our practice. Our attorneys have argued immigration appeals in federal appellate courts and have had a statute declared unconstitutional. We are dedicated to comprehensive immigrant reform and remain invested in the latest immigration legislation and rulemaking, including deferred action. This allows us to advise our clients in New York and New Jersey of the full range of options available to them:

  • Adjustment of status

  • Asylum

  • Available types of visas

  • Waivers

  • Removal defense

  • Special programs and treaties

We know what you are going through, and we want to help, whether you want to know about the different types of visas or need to prevent deportation. Staff at our firm can explain what is happening at every phase of your case in clear, understandable language and address your expectations and concerns. A comprehensive strategy for your business or your family lets you feel confident, as does our commitment to keeping you apprised and moving the process forward in a timely manner.

With more than two decades of immigration law experience, we do not limit ourselves to the mainline approaches. Instead, we evaluate your full array of options and use our in-depth, practical knowledge of the system to get results even if another lawyer cannot help you. Our thorough understanding of immigration procedures — both official and unofficial — allow us to more effectively help our clients navigate the process and avoid many of the problems that can otherwise occur.

We understand how stressful and confusing the immigration process can be, so we take special care to keep you informed and comfortable.
