Immigration Lawyer You Can Trust

Helping you through a complex immigration system
Whether you are facing deportation and.or potential separation from your loved ones, starting a family or hiring your perfect employment candidate from overseas, we can help. Whatever your issue, Emeterio G. Roa III, Esq. has labored for more than 20 years on behalf of foreign nationals in a variety of immigration cases, including:

  • Employment-based immigration
  • Family-sponsored immigration
  • Nonimmigrant visas
  • Naturalization
  • Deportation and removal proceedings

Working through the immigration bureaucracy
With so much at stake, the U.S. immigration system can feel like a frustrating bureaucratic nightmare. The convoluted laws can often seem callous and unreasonable, and the enormous government agencies can appear impenetrable. We help to ease some of the seemingly immense burden when dealing with:

  • Department of Homeland Security (DHS)
  • U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)
  • U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (USCBP)
  • U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (USICE)
  • State Department
  • Worldwide consulates and embassies
  • Immigration court


Applying for a visa or other immigration benefits.

Filling in your form is only the first step in your visa or benefit application process. The U.S. government sets strict requirements on qualifications and outlines inflexible procedures for filing. Mistakes on your application can lead to crucial delays and a potential denial with heartbreaking consequences. The disruption of your family, home, job and life in America, and in some cases your freedom, are at stake. Each type of visa comes with its own set of essential criteria, which must precisely match your qualifications. We discuss your short-term and ultimate immigration goals to set up a long-range plan. We thoroughly analyze your situation to choose the appropriate pathway and meticulously gather evidence that proves each element of your eligibility. We review red flags — such as past arrests, deportations or unauthorized employment — and address these potentially damaging issues from the start.


Constantly-changing immigration laws

Immigration policy is under constant attack and the laws are frequently modified, creating an endlessly fluctuating immigration landscape with nonsensical roadblocks that tear families apart and block good employees from jobs in the United States. The various agencies that administer immigration benefits regularly update their procedures, forms and guidelines, resulting in additional flux in the system. Emeterio G. Roa III, Esq. stays current on shifts in immigration law and remains ready to act upon potential changes in the pipeline. To successfully advise you, we consider both the laws as they exist and the possibilities for beneficial, as well as harmful reforms. We relentlessly pursue your case and develop unique solutions to complicated issues.
