Our Mission Is Your Immigration Success

We at Litwin & Smith represent each client before the various U.S. government agencies that regulate immigration benefits with our one mission in mind: to secure for you and yours, America's promise as a nation of immigrants, by providing representation that results in U.S. immigration benefits to you.

U.S. immigration rules are a patchwork of laws, regulations, interpretations, memos and actions by several U.S. government agencies including the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Service (USCIS), U.S. Department of State (DOS) and the many U.S. Embassies and Consulates, U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE), U.S. Customs & Border Patrol (CBP), U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC), and others. Litwin & Smith understands and applies the latest interplay of these myriad laws, regulations, rules, memos, and decisions that require knowledge, experience, and creative application to each person's circumstance and the visa required.

We offer a free 10 minute phone consultation to provide you direction and answer quick questions. We recommend you make a full consultation to identify an action plan specific to your needs and answer all your questions.

We invite you to scroll through our website, visit the various government websites, and search immigration topics on the internet. However, given the complexity of immigration law we caution you to seek the immigration counsel of Litwin & Smith.
