Millions of individuals from various parts of the world dream of migrating to the United States each year, all for their own personal reasons. Some individuals desire to achieve a better education. Others hope to gain religious freedom. And others still hope to start a new life with more opportunities for themselves and their family members. “The American Dream” is alive and well, yet obtaining it is much more difficult than it used to be. Now, there are books of complex laws to adhere to, stacks of paperwork to file correctly, and board rooms of individuals to meet and convince that you are worthy of the American Dream. Sadly, many individuals make it through the first steps of the visa or green card application process, and then simply give up.
If an individual does not know U.S. immigration law as intricately the Cicero, IL immigration attorneys at Kriezelman Burton & Associates, LLC do, navigating the immigration process can be extremely frustrating and tiring. From correctly filling out intensive applications to meeting stringent eligibility requirements, individuals who hope to migrate to the U.S. must comply exactly with the requirements set forth by the U.S. entities that govern immigration laws, including U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services (USCIS) and the U.S. Department of State (DOS). Because of how easy it can be to file an application incorrectly, our Cicero immigration lawyers use their knowledge and intricate understanding of the law to help individuals around the world file for U.S. citizenship or residency, and thereby fulfill their goal of living the American Dream.
While one’s dream of moving to the U.S. may be a big one, many find that they are easily off-put by how difficult applying for a visa or green card proves to be. Without adequate legal representation, an adverse decision can mean the end of immigration goals entirely. However, our Cicero, IL immigration lawyers strive to help individuals work through any problems they face throughout the application and immigration process. Some of the more common issues that we deal with include:
Unfortunately, once an individual is in the United States, their problems do not end there. Even if a foreign national is successful in obtaining a visa or green card, a number of legal issues can arise that may affect their status in the future. Some of those issues include:
Our Cicero, IL immigration lawyers regularly assist clients with each of these issues, and strive to help each client achieve the U.S. residency documentation that they desire.
Although our office is located in Cicero, IL, we regularly travel to other areas throughout Illinois and the country to help individuals resolve their immigration issues.
Many individuals feel confident in applying for a visa or green card on their own, but these individuals fail to take into account the complex book of laws governing immigration. Individuals who choose the DIY route often find that they have to start the application process over several times because of one entry error, or that they cannot reapply after failing to meet one or two minor eligibility requirements. More unfortunate is when individuals already in the United States on a work or school visa fail to maintain eligibility requirements, and so have to leave before their time was supposed to be up. Should an individual who is already in the U.S. receive an adverse determination, they could face deportation, civil fines, and criminal penalties. In order to avoid those mistakes altogether, it is in the best interest of any foreign national who hopes to travel to the U.S. to do so with the assistance of an immigration attorney.
The Cicero, IL immigration attorneys at Kriezelman Burton & Associates, LLC have been providing individuals with legal representation and assistance with their immigration needs for over 40 years.

"All people working good help "
"Thanks for everything! Jeffrey Kriezelman and Kevin Raica did an awesome job on my case. I would recommend them to anyone who needs the best attorneys in Illinois (and probably beyond). Highly recommend!"
"Liza received her green card last Friday and I can’t explain how happy we are. I wanted to send you a quick note and let you know we are so appreciative with the way you handled our case. We talked to a number of lawyers prior to meeting you, but there was something they were all missing and we felt we couldn’t trust any of them. You had a strong presentation and you sounded like you knew what you were talking about right off the bat. Regardless of a delay in the process, you certainly lived up to our expectations. We are so glad we met you and I just wanted to say thank you for your services."
"My husband was in a position to be deported and when I met Erin Cobb she jumped right on it and had it stopped and got him home with us. Later Lauren McClure jumped in to take over when Erin got too busy she jumped in like she had been with our case from the beginning! These two ladies saved our family from being separated and they worked their hearts out to make that possible! I will forever be grateful to them! If you need an immigration attorney these ladies are your people! Thanks so much ladies for all your hard work!!!!"
"I applied for citizenship and spoke to a few attorneys before meeting Kevin. Kevin is very knowledgeable as he has quite a few years in his practice. The atmosphere was always relaxed when working with Kevin, whether over the phone, via email or in person. When the time came for the interview with the immigration officer, that worked well too. Kevin and the officer knew each other. Kevin wrote up a very nice summary of my application for the officer to read. I am happy to say that I am now a citizen and if I choose to use the services of an attorney when I file for my wife-to-be, I will use Kevin and his firm. Thank you Kevin!"
"Thank you Matthew for your efforts. You were a great lawyer in your job and your personal transaction."
"After visiting couple of Lawyers Justin Burton was the only one saying homest that that case wont work Where others Just wanna $. Thank you And will go back ."
"Without a doubt these are the best immigration lawyers around. Notably, Brittni Rivera is extremely knowledgeable and helpful and always keeps her clients informed of what is going on. These are fighters in the courtroom for their clients rights. Don’t go to anyone else!"
"I have dealt with few immigration attorneys in the past and even had a consultation with Justin Burton. I did not choose Justin or anyone from his office at the time and it was a mistake on my end. It is exciting to see how professionally and with precision they are handling my case now. I was very fortunate to meet Brittni Riviera, since my case was transferred to her. She is the best immigration lawyer I have ever met. Her knowledge, helpfulness, sharpness and respect gave me confidence in my case and realistic understanding of what is waiting for me in the future. My case is not over yet, but I know that Justin, Brittni and their team is what I need. Strongly recommend to consider them in any of your immigration matters."
"Mr. Kriezelman is great lawyer , and wonderful staff. I truly recommended ..."
"Mr. Burton is a wonderful lawyer. We are very thankful for all of the helpful services that he has provided for us and for the very kind and helpful staff. They were all very reliable to work with."
"Doing their job very professionally. Highly recommend."
"I sought the help of attorney Matt Kriezelman on an immigration case very important to me and my family. Every minute of working with him was an absolute pleasure. Not only did Matt meet with me for every single question and concern that I had (and I had very many) , but he did so on several occasions even after his business hours were over. He has helped me understand every paper that he filed, every law that would apply to our case and every single problem that we might encounter. Needless to say, every problem that we did encounter, Matt resolved effortlessly, or at least he made it seem effortless. He spent countless hours on our case and we just purchased my aunt's one way ticket to the United States from Serbia, which compelled me to write this review. My family will forever be grateful to Matt Kriezelman for taking on our case and uniting us."
"Justin Burton and his entire team are amazing. Very professional people highly organized very helpful. I'm very pleased working with them . Grateful"
"Very professional people highly organized very helpful. I'm very pleased working with them . I would highly recommend working with them if you have any kind of immigration issues."
"The way that my wife and I met Attorney Kriezelman was nothing short of a miracle. We got a reference from a Social Worker at the clinic we were attending while my wife was pregnant and pretty much told us to go to some Downtown address. We waited for what seemed like forever not knowing who was coming or what to expect. When Attorney Kriezelman did show up, he asked us some questions - pretty much asking who we were. At the end of the meeting he said there shouldn't be any problems with the immigration process. The following week we signed some papers at his office. A couple weeks after that, we had a hearing and we were approved. My wife got her residency card like 2 months later. What a blessing! God bless Attorney Kriezelman!"
"My husband and I visited 2 local immigration lawyers before meeting with Erin. We live about 3 hours from Chicago in Indiana. Within minutes of meeting Erin we knew she was going to be the one to help our family. She was warm, welcoming, very patient as we asked a lot of questions over and over. You could tell that she was very passionate about helping others. If it wasn't for her help we wouldn't be where we are today. Driving 3 hours just to see her was well worth it. We would do it a million times over again! If you are looking for an immigration attorney, I very highly recommend her!"
"Justin Burton and his ENTIRE team are amazing! I first went to Justin a few years ago because I had accidentally missed my interview date with immigration and I did not know what to do nor what was going to happen next. If it weren't Justin, I would still be dealing with the long and tiring immigration process. Justin and his team are extremely knowledgeable and caring. They are very respectful and let you know exactly what the process will be like! I was so pleased with Justin that I asked him to help me with my parent's case just recently. Needless to say, everything has been successful all thanks to Justin Burton and his team!"
"This is the best guy in town. no doubts about that.he worth every money we spend on him. Im not gonna go thru all story but enough to say 5 different lawyers i visit before him was giving me a zero chances for me. Bets man i town!!!!"
"Erin Cobb did an excellent job helping my wife obtain legal permanent resident status in the US. She and her team prepared us for the expected hurdles, walked us through the application process, filed the necessary DHS applications, and finally attended our in-person interview for her Green Card. Her estimated timeline was accurate and there were no surprises. Thanks Erin."
"Justin was recommended to thorough a friend that does professional corporate hiring abroad , krilaw handles all their immigration processes for them. Justin and staff won my case where a couple lawyers failed to deliver. Krilaw is a structured professional kind firm, I have sent them numerous referrals since a started working with them. If you know lawyers and been through a few you will see the difference and appreciate them from the start, and if you haven't hired an attorneys service before you will appreciate their care and patients. No matter how much I rant here it won't serve them justice, go get a consultation, and you will see what I'm talking about."
"We hired Justin Burton in 2012 for an immigration matter for my husband. He let us know right away what to expect, and everything has worked out as he explained every step of the way. Everyone at the office has been accommodating and helpful. The times that he has been unavailable by phone, there has always been someone else there to help us out. We have no problem paying for a service when we are getting what we want in the end."
