Who We Are

The Law Firm of Shihab & Associates is an experienced, technologically savvy, and decorated law firm that strives to provide a superior level of service to our clientele. Whether our client is a multi-national corporation or a small startup business, we treat every case and client with the attention and dignity they deserve, providing guidance through the complicated system of immigration laws in the United States. While most of our efforts are devoted to keeping our clients within full compliance of federal immigration regulations and out of court, we provide representation in removal proceedings as well as before Federal Courts, federal agencies, and tribunals when our client’s rights are in need of defense. Above all else, we strive to remove the uncertainty and the inconvenience of the immigration process, providing our clients with guidance, peace of mind, and positive resolutions to difficult immigration problems.

An International Law Firm

International immigration law is our passion. Our practice covers all areas of immigration law including visas obtained through spouses, fiancés, and children. We routinely file petitions for H-1b workers, L-1 visas, and E-2 visas for temporary employment. We also specialize in obtaining employment-based green cards through the PERM process, EB-1 petition process, and national interest waiver. Finally, we represent clients in removal proceedings before the immigration court, U.S. Federal Court, and Federal Administrative Agencies such as the Department of Labor. When you retain us as counsel, you have hired a team of experienced attorneys and support staff who are dedicated to providing the highest degree of service.
