Immigration Lawyer Chicago – (312) 444-1940
Scott D. Pollock is the grandson of immigrants and he’s keenly aware that people are coming to the U.S. for the same reasons they did, to make a better life for themselves.
The government often uses its power against the best interest of people trying to lawfully attain citizenship in the U.S. It’s our job to be your guide through the tangled web of obstacles and pitfalls that is the American immigration system.
At Scott D. Pollock & Associates, we provide both individuals and employers with high-quality and affordable representation that can help achieve their desired result. We offer the following immigration services to our clients.
Adjustment of Status to Permanent ResidentMany people already in the U.S. need to change their immigration status to that of a lawful permanent resident (LPR) or green card holder. Our knowledgeable associates specialize in helping clients determine if they meet the special eligibility requirements to apply for AOS. We can also provide advice on what you should do while awaiting a response such as whether or not you should remain in the U.S. or how long the process takes.
Appeals and Immigration-related LitigationIt is not uncommon for our clients to have already encountered legal challenges when they contact us. These could be deportation proceedings, merits hearings, or a person purusing an appeal. Whatever your situation is, you want to know if a judge’s decision is final and if there is light at the end of the tunnel. Our associates work with both employers and individuals to help achieve meaningful results and case resolution.
Citizenship and NaturalizationPermanent residents wanting to become a United States citizen must first navigate through a process called “Naturalization.” Scott D. Pollock & Associates have guided numerous Naturalization (N-400) applicants through this process over the years.
Employment-Based (including Labor Certifications)There are several steps to gaining permanent residence through employer based sponsorship. We have successfully helped many companies through the process of obtaining an approved PERM Labor Certificate, and approved I-140 (Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker) status. Our associates are also skilled in obtaining employment-creation visas.
Political AsylumMany of our clients have compelling stories about their journey to the U.S. Many times those stories involve accounts of escaping abuse, crime, and mistreatment in other countries.
Our attorneys have a passion for helping people who just want to have a peaceful life in the U.S., free from persecution and violence. Our skilled lawyers can help you navigate the rough waters of the political asylum process in the U.S. so you can accomplish your dreams of leading a safe, happy, and healthy life.
