Immigration Law


Since the passage of the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 (IIRIRA), The Federal Government has systematically become more aggressive in its enforcement of every aspect of United States immigration law and policy. This has impacted every individual or agency that must navigate through the murky waters of the United States immigration system. Business owners who rely on foreign workers must hire in accordance with the seemingly countless government regulations or face heavy fines and penalties. Individuals who seek to travel to the United States to live, work, study, or invest, must be familiar with the nuances of the various visas, that may or may not be available, in order to avoid years of processing delays. Those already present in the country in violation of the immigration laws must be well equipped to fight for their rights in court or face deportation from the United States.

At Cohen Forman Barone, LLP we pride ourselves in helping people work and study in the United States, apply for and obtain permanent residency, fight removal, and fight deportation. Most importantly we recognize how taxing and confusing this process can be for all involved. This is why we make it our priority to keep our client’s educated and informed on the progress of their case. Our clients confirm that this greatly reduces the stress of going through these processes.

The attorneys at Cohen Forman Barone, LLP have long assisted companies seeking to hire foreign workers or those facing government investigations over their hiring practices and record keeping of noncitizen employees. Additionally, if you are facing deportation from the country or seeking to lawfully live and work in the United States, Cohen Forman Barone, LLP will help get you through the process.
