U.S. Citizenship Lawyers

Expert Legal Team for US Citizenship & Naturalization

The Department of Homeland Security does NOT take a citizenship case lightly; it decides a naturalization case with a high level of scrutiny and extensive background and character investigations. Even the slightest of mistakes or omissions in a filing can lead to a denial of your application, or worse, place you in removal proceedings. Which is why it is crucial that you do NOT take any risks and hire a competent Attorney when making representations to the Department of Homeland Security. ONLY a licensed immigration attorney can represent you before the Department of Homeland Security.
