Columbus Immigration Lawyers

We Are Proud of Our Community & Our Diversity

Centrally located in the State of Ohio, Columbus is the state capital named after the Portuguese explorer Christopher Columbus. Columbus was originally established in 1812 at the center of Ohio right at the convergence of the Olentangy and Scioto Rivers. Home to the Ohio State University Buckeyes, Columbus is a diverse city boasting a 10% population of foreign-born individuals. These include US Citizens, visa holders, and green card permanent residents, all living in harmony with residents who were born in the U.S.

Columbus is a well-manicured town that includes numerous white collar industries such as education, banking, healthcare, steel, energy, and technology. Some of the largest fashion companies in the U.S. are located in Gahanna near New Albany Ohio, which is a suburb of the City of Columbus. Columbus inhabitants are known as a perfect representative of the American population personality in that newly invented products are tested in Columbus first prior to release in the market place as a whole. The Columbus, Ohio Metropolitan Statistical Area has nearly 2 million inhabitants and includes Delaware, Ohio to the north, Newark/Heath to the east, and Plain City and London to the West.
