We specialize in resolving the most difficult and seemingly impossible cases. We represent an international array of individual and corporate clients in all types of temporary and permanent U.S. immigration matters.
Choosing a law firm to handle your immigration needs is a serious decision. There are many factors which set our firm apart from the rest:
We practice U.S. immigration law and nothing else. Our attorneys and professional staff have dedicated their lives to serving the needs of immigrants. Immigration law and procedures are constantly changing and cases can be highly complex. Because we specialize in only immigration law, we can serve clients with every type of immigration case – all kinds of temporary and permanent visas, as well as removal defense and appeals.
Our team members have more than 50 years of combined professional immigration law experience with proven results. Mr. Haar is Past-Chairman of the International Law Section of the District of Columbia Bar, Past-President of the Washington Foreign Law Society, a Fulbright Scholar at the Universite Libre de Bruxelles, Belgium, a graduate of the Hague Academy of International Law, and has served as the American Immigration Lawyers Association Liaison to U.S. Department of Labor, U.S. Immigration Court and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Our attorneys are graduates of some of the finest law schools in the United States and abroad. We have university backgrounds in foreign languages and international studies. Our attorneys and professional staff participate in regular seminars and continuing legal education offered by the American Immigration Lawyers Association and the National Immigration Project of the National Lawyers Guild, which specializes in the defense of foreigners with criminal convictions.
When you first visit our firm for a consultation, you will meet with one of our attorneys, not a paralegal or assistant. Often, two of our attorneys will meet with you simultaneously to ensure that your immigration options are fully explored and your needs are met. While our attorneys and paralegals work as a team, the attorneys pay personal attention to each and every case.
We care about honesty and giving the best legal advice to clients. If we feel that your case is very difficult or that you have no legal options, we will tell you, rather than take your money. If you decide to retain us, we will explore all options, pros and cons, and advise you of realistic risks.
Paul Haar has been a champion of immigrants’ rights for over 20 years. His father was an immigrant from Czechoslovakia, his wife is from China, and he has studied and worked as an international lawyer in Belgium, France, Spain and The Netherlands. Our team speaks Spanish, French, Portuguese, Italian and Chinese.
