North Carolina Immigration Attorneys

Latino immigrants, whether documented or undocumented, face particular difficulties when dealing with legal issues. Immigrants are often challenged by language barriers, dishonest practitioners, concerns about deportation, and the complex American legal system. Immigrants need — and deserve — meaningful communication and legal counsel rooted in cross-cultural understanding and sensitivity to the needs of Latinos living in America.

North Carolina’s Premier Latino Law Firm

In 2003, attorney Ricardo Velasquez started the law firm of Velasquez & Associates to address the legal needs of the Latino community in North Carolina. Over the last eleven years, our law firm has become one of the largest Latino law firms in the state. We have handled some of the most complex immigration cases and frequently receive referrals from attorneys and law firms in North Carolina and throughout the country.

How does the I-601A waiver program benefit relatives of US residents?
