Do I Need an Immigration Lawyer?
It can be tempting to assume that you do not actually need to hire help and you can handle your immigration case on your own. Taking on the difficult and complicated process of immigration by yourself, regardless of your current standing within the United States, is probably not your best option. These are some of the reasons you should seriously consider hiring an attorney:
- Court proceedings: It is an absolute necessity that you seek legal help if you are involved in immigration court proceedings. Your immigration status is probably in jeopardy and an experienced attorney can help you determine where you stand and what you need to do next.
- Inadmissibility: There are numerous reasons you may not be allowed to come into the United States, including past criminal charges, certain communicable diseases, and previous immigration violations. An immigration lawyer could help you seek waivers for some of the reasons you may not be allowed in the country.
- Delayed Application: If some part of your application is taking months to move forward when it should have taken weeks, it could be the fault of United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Anyone who has dealt with USCIS knows how frustrating it can be, especially if your application is delayed. A lawyer can help you get information about what is happening and offer advice and aid to get your application approved.
- Overwhelming Paperwork: Almost all interactions with USCIS begin with some level of paperwork. In some cases the forms are simple, but more often than not, individuals find filling out this information to be stressful and frustrating. To save yourself time and make sure your application is completed properly, seek legal assistance.
Almost everyone falls into one of the categories above. Immigration law is notoriously complicated, confusing, and difficult to understand, which is why we truly believe that seeking the help of an attorney would be useful for you. Let us handle the frustrating phone calls, forms, and waivers relating to your case. We want to give you peace of mind and get your case started or moving as soon as possible.

Texas Immigration Statistics
Texas is one of the most popular states for immigrants to settle when coming into the country. According to the Migration Policy Institute, Texas is second only to California in the number of immigrants who call the state home. These recent statistics offer a clearer picture of the number of immigrants in our state:
- 5.1 million immigrants live in Texas
- 17.2 percent of Texas residents are foreign-born
- Two Texas counties were among the top 15 counties nationwide for numbers of immigrants: Harris County (with about 1.23 million immigrants) and Dallas County (with about 639,000 immigrants)
- There are about 340,000 immigrants in the Austin metropolitan area, putting them at about 15.2 percent of the population
Contrary to the belief of some that immigrants are here to steal American jobs and taxpayer dollars, immigrants contribute a huge amount to the Texas economy. Our lawyers recognize the important contributions of immigrants and want to help immigrant families in any way we can. These numbers speak for themselves: immigrants are here to work hard and create a good life. We want to help make the American dream a reality for individuals and families.
