Standing Up for Immigrants

When you are an immigrant or come from a family of immigrants, the law affects you in different ways. If you or a loved one is undocumented, you live in fear that you or your loved one can be taken away and deported. Even if you have legal status, such as permanent residence, a visa, or DACA, you may lose your legal status if you are convicted of certain crimes. When you are an immigrant, the legal system sometimes treats you differently.

Monterrey Law Firm knows how being an immigrant can affect all aspects of your life. Our team of attorneys and support staff come from immigrant families themselves, so we have a deep understanding of the issues faced by immigrants and their loved ones. Because these issues are personal to us, we practice with passion and focus. Furthermore, everyone in our office is fluent in Spanish and English, so you can speak to us in the language most comfortable for you. This ensures nothing gets lost in translation.

Your Immigration & Naturalization Lawyers

Immigration law in the United States is complicated and can often leave you feeling overwhelmed. You need immigration attorneys who have the experience to represent you and guide you through this stressful process.

The immigration and naturalization attorneys of Monterrey Law Firm provide skilled legal services to people throughout Arkansas and the United States who are facing a number of immigration-related issues. We offer nonjudgmental and candid legal advice, and we start working on your case immediately.

Types of Immigration Cases We Handle

Immigration cases we handle include, but are not limited to:

    • Deportation/Removal Defense
    • Family-based Petitions (for family members in the U.S. and abroad)
    • Adjustment of Status (green card/legal permanent resident)
    • Citizenship/Naturalization
    • Removal of Condition
    • Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJS)
    • Asylum/Withholding of Removal (WOR)
    • Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

    Simplifying Immigration Court Hearings & More

    If you are facing deportation and live in Arkansas, the closest immigration court is located in Memphis, Tennessee. However, our office is equipped to do many immigration court hearings by teleconference. This means that you do not have to take time off work or pay to travel to Memphis. Instead, you come to our office for your hearings.

    Our lawyers provide comprehensive legal services. We listen to your story, offer pragmatic opinions regarding your best options, file the necessary paperwork, and represent you at all hearings. Furthermore, if you later find yourself needing legal services for another problem that falls within one of our three areas of practice, you can come back to us and we will represent you (taking into account your immigrant status).
