Our Services

For years, the Law Offices of Christopher T. Howell, Esq. has provided quality legal services to individuals and families who need assistance with immigration matters. Our firm is committed to guiding you through whichever immigration matter you may be facing, no matter how complex. Some of the many immigration matters that our firm handles include the following:

Deportation Defense: The mere thought of a loved one being deported can send a family into crisis mode. This is a situation seen by families living in the United States almost every day. If a loved one has been found to be out of status or has been arrested for a crime, they may find themselves in detention and en route to being deported.

Employment Immigration: A majority of individuals who come to the United States are looking for better employment opportunities than the ones they can get in their country of origin. The United States provides a number of different work visas to accommodate these individuals, whether they wish to work permanently or temporarily. It is essential that anyone who wishes to come to the United States for work does so within the parameters of the law, otherwise they will face deportation. Our firm can assist you as you in obtaining any type of work visa that applies to your situation, including but not limited to the following:

  • H-1B: workers in a specialty occupation
  • H-2B: temporary non-agricultural workers
  • L: Intracompany transferees for executive, managerial positions, or individuals with specialized knowledge
  • O: Persons with extraordinary ability or achievements in certain fields, including the arts and science

DACA: Immigration laws in the United States can be confusing, especially with all of the changes that have been made in recent years. One program, in particular, has been the source of many modifications since 2017. DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, is protected right now for those who were already granted deferred action but this may change in the future.

Family Immigration: One of the largest practice areas within immigration law is family immigration. Often, families are separated for months or even years at a time as they make efforts to come to the United States. At the Law Offices of Christoper T. Howell, Esq., we are proud to help families start their new lives in the United States. Our legal team has years of experience representing clients as they navigate the following family immigration matters:

  • K-1 Fiance Visas
  • Conditional Residency
  • Consular Processing
  • Adjustment of Status

Green Card: When a person from another country wishes to live and work permanently within the United States, they will have to apply for a Green Card. Green Card holders are also commonly referred to as permanent residents. The process of becoming a permanent resident isn’t always easy and it is only applicable to individuals who are eligible.

Naturalization: One of the most exciting points in life for many people is when they are afforded the opportunity to become a citizen of the United States. In order to do this, they will have to meet all of the requirements for citizenship and complete the naturalization process. There are many benefits to becoming a naturalized citizen of the United States.
