Practice Areas

Gasparian Spivey Immigration offers strategic representation, zealous advocacy, and practical expert advice. We spend time getting to know our clients, their history, and their goals to provide the most effective representation. We limit our practice to immigration, so we can focus on compassionate, conscientious, and personal client service.

We start each case with an in-depth consultation in person or by phone or, if needed, Skype. We ask that you provide documents related to any criminal or prior immigration issues in advance to ensure an effective consultation. We will determine a strategy for your situation, ensure you understand your options, and provide a realistic portrait of the time and costs involved in achieving your goal.

Immigration law is complex. How you navigate the complexity depends upon whether you are within the United States or outside, your immigration status or lack thereof, your criminal and immigration history, and your immigration goals.
