Immigration Law – Award-Winning Representation

 

 

 

US immigration law covers many areas, defining procedures for becoming a US citizen, obtaining a Green Card, and qualifying for visas for temporary visits for jobs or other purposes. The law also includes particular procedures for deportation. Our experienced immigration law team understands the full scope of the law and how it impacts you and your family. We can guide you through these complicated legal issues with our bilingual attorneys and staff.

Immigration law issues are personal to our team. The firm’s founder, Waldo De Castroverde, was born and raised in Cuba, where he fought the Castro regime as a young man. Waldo was one of Nevada’s first Spanish-speaking lawyers. Here’s how our team can help.

Immigration Cases We Take

Understanding and applying the intricacies of immigration law requires both skill and dedication. At De Castroverde Law Group, we bring both to the table, advocating for our clients with unwavering commitment. Here’s an overview of the immigration cases we handle:

  • Adjustments of Immigration Status: We guide clients through changing their legal status, ensuring all steps are meticulously addressed.

  • Visa Applications and Processing: From initial application to final approval, we make the visa journey smoother, providing informed advice at every stage.

Family-Based Immigration: Family is at the heart of what we do, and we champion the rights of those seeking to keep their loved ones close.
