Baton Rouge Immigration Lawyer

The American legal process is complex and sometimes confusing, especially in the area of immigration law. It can be hard to understand your rights and options when immigration policies tend to change quickly. You need an experienced lawyer who is up to date on the latest immigration and naturalization laws, regulations, and policies to guide you.

The Baton Rouge immigration attorneys of Chavez & Valko, LLP, can answer your questions and help with your immigration cases. We can work with you to determine the best way for you to work to acquire a temporary visa whether for school or employment, the so-called "Green card" through your family or employment, all the way to become an American citizen, and we can represent you throughout the entire process.

For the latest information on immigration changes, including deferred action (similar to previously proposed DREAM Act), contact our immigration law firm online to discuss your case. We help clients from across the country and around the world on their path to the American Dream. Call today.

You can be confident that when you are represented by our lawyers, you are getting the best service and support available anywhere in the country.
