Cases We Handle: Immigration Law Practice Areas

Our team of professionals has experience in every area of immigration law, from visas to green cards to deportation. There are many reasons why an individual may choose to come to the U.S., one of which is to seek asylum. If they are facing prosecution in their home country, either physical, political, or emotional, they may flee to the U.S. for safety. We are here to ensure that you are not sent back to your home country if you are facing these types of situations. If you are being threatened with deportation, we will do our utmost to protect you. Whether it is because allegedly overstayed your visa or were convicted of a crime, please allow us to examine your case.

How The New York Immigration Lawyers at Pozo Goldstein, LLP Can Help You

If you are dealing with issues involving visas, please do not hesitate to contact us. If you are experiencing difficulties regarding being accepted for a visa or there was a miscommunication regarding when your visa expired, you need an experienced attorney on your side. If you are an employee seeking to work in the U.S., we are able to help you regarding the issues you will be facing.

For jobs in the U.S. where there is no worker in country able to successfully perform the job, a labor certificate could be obtained to hire a worker from another country. You could be granted a work visa which is different from permanent residency but could still be difficult to secure.

For those who wish to become a permanent resident of the U.S., a green card may be a good option. However, the process of applying for a green card can prove to be fraught with difficulty. In order to ensure that your case goes smoothly, contact us.

Other non-citizens do not only wish to retain residency, but want to apply for citizenship. One of the most common ways to do so is through naturalization. As the number of immigrants in the U.S. is increasing, so is the difficulty in being granted naturalization. Authorities will make every effort to find any excuse to deny an applicant.

Our goal is to supply you with every advantage, so that you have the best possible chance of securing citizenship.

The Importance of New York Immigration Lawyers

Immigration continues to be a leading contributor to the growing population of the U.S. In 2009 alone, more than 1.1 million foreigners obtained lawful permanent residence in the U.S. According to the Department of Homeland Security, the number of new green card holders in the country represented an increase of 2.1% from the previous year, and a drastic 34.5% increase from 2000. While a majority of immigrants were granted entry only temporarily, either through a tourist visa or a business traveler’s visa, there were still quite a few that became permanent residents of the country.

Unfortunately, the numbers reported in Homeland Security’s Yearbook of Immigration Statistics 2009 do not reflect the many immigrants who applied for citizenship or naturalization and were denied their requests. If you were one of these individuals, there is legal help at Pozo Goldstein, LLP. Our New York immigration lawyers regularly help those individuals who are attempting to complete the immigration process successfully, as well as those who’ve encountered problems along the way. We encourage you to contact our office today for more information about how we can help with your immigration process.

    Irwin - Avvo Reviewer
  • Frieda Goldstein and her elite team are the best immigration law office anywhere. We had previously worked with 2 other immigration attorneys, neither of which had the experience nor the knowledge to help us. Frieda and her very experienced team were able to correct a very complicated immigration matter for my partner and enable her to acquire her US citizenship. We are so grateful to Frieda!! The Pozo/Goldstein team genuinely cares about their clients and kept in touch to answer questions and keep us updated. Thank goodness for Frieda and her team! They are the truly the best!

    The Best Immigration Law Office
  • Frieda was very professional, friendly and helpful. Her expertise in immigration law put my husband and I at ease throughout the entire process. I would definitely recommend Frieda to anyone needing immigration services.

    Frieda was Very Professional, Friendly and Helpful
  • My experience with Ms. Frieda was very effective and helpful. I would recommend her to anybody who needs help with their immigration papers because she is always willing to help and helps in a friendly and comfortable way. Every time I would go to her office she would always have a vibrant and positive attitude that made happy. She is very smart and knows how to get the work done.

    Ms. Frieda was Very Effective and Helpful
  • I was troubled on every side, yet not distressed, I was perplexed but not despaired, persecuted but not forsaken, cast down but not destroyed only because Frieda Goldstein came to the rescue.God in his mercy used Frieda Goldstein to grant me my citizenship.If her wealth of experience and knowledge in immigration matters coupled with her profound and vehement drive for positive results for her clients are anything to go by, I will recommend her for all your immigration matters. Frieda Goldstein keeps up the good work and thanks again for challenging and defeating the system that denied me citizenship for tax evasion.

    I Was Troubled On Every Side…
  • Pozo Goldstein efficiently managed my Visa application, I found them to be easy to communicate with, responsive to questions and quietly confident in their process. I appreciated the way they broke down the requested information required from the government issued checklists. They clarified all the terms and related the urgency and importance of certain documents, allowing me to prioritize. Their hard work was effective, my interview went smoothly and I am now a proud holder of a green card.
    I will certainly use them next time!

    Now a Proud Holder of a Green Card
  • I honestly thought my life was over before I met Frieda Goldstein. I was frustrated and angry with the system. This deportation case took me through hell and back but she remained positive and professional throughout my rants. She’s diligent, kindhearted, knowledgeable, and an overall beautiful human being. She worked really hard to get my case dismissed. I am proud to say last week I became a United States Citizen. If I didn’t seek her help I wouldn’t be this happy today. I would 100% recommend Mrs. Frieda Goldstein. I will forever be thankful for all she has done for me. 🙂

  • Mrs. Gyires has patiently followed my case for a non-immigrant VISA for more than 1.5 years, always available to answer my many doubts and questions, to recommend me the way to go. She has been indefatigable, persistent and available in defending my case and eventually winning it. It was by no means an easy visa petition; many a lawyer had told me before it would be almost impossible to get it. Yet Mrs. Gyires’ skills and knowledge made it possible for me to get what I was hoping for and even much more. Thank you so much, I can’t wait to work with Mrs. Gyires again in the future!

  • In 2013 I found myself in deportation status. I was completely terrified, as I have lived in the US 30 years. I have children here, a business, a home and a life. Steven Goldstein came to me very highly recommended. He did not disappoint! he was with me every step of the way, and was immensely kind and understanding. He answered questions, returned phone calls and emails without hesitation and truly made me feel as if he cared. I was a human being, and not a case number. We won our case yesterday and a cannot say enough about my amazing experience with him!!
