The U.S. immigration process is a complex maze of laws, rules, and regulations that one must wade through before getting anything done. Nearly everyone who goes through the immigration process expresses some level of confusion or frustration. For those in violation of the law, the process is even more daunting. To successfully navigate through this complex immigration system, you can count on the best immigration lawyers in Chicago found at Kriezelman Burton & Associates, LLC.

There are various ways noncitizens can become lawful permanent residents (Green Card holders) through employment. These employment-based categories include:

If you are in the United States without valid immigration status, you may find yourself placed in removal or deportation proceedings. These are proceedings where the government tries to have you deported from the United States for being here illegally. Fortunately, even those facing deportation have rights under U.S. immigration laws.

Kriezelman Burton is a great firm, and Erin C. Cobb is an excellent lawyer. They were very professional and knowledgeable about the immigration process. They helped me every step of the way and made sure I understood everything that was happening. Erin always was transparent and gave me great advice to move my case forward. She turned things upside down and found simple yet difficult-to-see solutions to gain the edge and win my case. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for the best legal representation.
