Becoming a U.S. Citizen

wish to pursue citizenship, talk to a
New York City immigration lawyer from our firm. We can review your case and give you an idea of what may
be involved in the process, depending on your circumstances.
We represent individuals throughout Queens, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Manhattan,
