At Lawyer Legion we created a directory of immigration attorneys. You can search our immigration law directory by state, city, or zip code. Find a list of profiles for different attorneys in a particular city or state. The profiles have information on the attorney's membership and leadership in legal organizations related to immigration law, speaking engagements at quality CLE seminars, and participation in specialty certification programs.
All of the listings in our directory are free to immigration attorneys. Furthermore, you can trust the results because we do not allow any paid listings or advertising by the attorneys.
Immigration law governs who may come in and out of the United States, how long they may stay, who may become a citizen. Immigration law is governed under federal law under the United States Immigration and Nationality Act. The U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security have jurisdiction over immigration matters.
Immigration lawyers represent people from other countries who wish to come to the United States, people who are in the United States who wish to stay here or people who seek citizenship. Lawyers focused on immigration law may represent foreign nationals and U.S. corporations that employ foreign nationals.
An immigration attorney might represent a person at a deportation hearing or help a person fill out the necessary paperwork for asylum. Immigration lawyers represent clients before the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Department of Labor and U.S. Department of State.

Many lawyers who work exclusively in the immigration field focus on either family-based, marriage-based or employment-based immigration cases. The immigration system is extraordinarily complex with many difficult issues, so it is important that the attorney have an understanding of it. Additionally, laws may change and the lawyer must be able to keep up.
Members of immigration law organizations, like the American Immigration Lawyers Association, have access to continuing legal education, publications and other resources that help them keep up-to-date on immigration law and practices, as well as improve their skills and competency.
The AILA also maintains an immigration attorney directory of its members which is an effective tool for anyone searching for the right lawyer. The AILA immigration attorney directory also allows the public to narrow their search to include only attorneys that speak a particular foreign language such as Spanish, Russian, French, Hindi, Chinese, or Japanese.
Several states allow attorneys to become certified as a specialist in immigration law. Under the bar rules in certain states, a board certified tax lawyer earns the right to advertise himself or herself as a specialist in the field of immigration law.
