Defining the Best Immigration Lawyer
By: Harlan York
November 7, 2013

Eli Manning must wake up every day at his house in Hoboken and be very disappointed that his New York Giants have only 2 wins against 6 losses.

I – among millions of Giants fans – am not too thrilled at the 2 and 6 record.

But then again, Eli, and a group of his teammates, do have 2 Super Bowl rings in the last 6 years.

Now I am sitting here looking at 9 Best Lawyers in America awards.

But when my team loses a case, I get very displeased.  The Best Immigration Lawyer awards do not mean much at that moment.

We work very hard.

This isn’t a game.

It’s about peoples’ lives.

So how do I go about Defining the Best Immigration Lawyer?

I think that you have a problem if you simply rest on your laurels.

I know that Eli Manning is not leaning back in a chair at MetLife Stadium and reliving his Super Bowl victories.  He is out on the practice field with his team, trying to win one game at a time.  Or he is watching game film.

Here at our office, we spend our time every single day, researching law, writing arguments, preparing applications for green cards, visas, and citizenship.

The Best Immigration Lawyer does not relive old cases and tell too many war stories.

Instead he and his team look forward to hard work.

We know that there is something very important at stake every day.

Getting people what they deserve.

  • Working on victims’ rights in matters like asylum and U Visas.
  • Fighting to get immigrants released from jail and back to their US citizen families.
  • Helping kids who were brought from foreign countries to the US when they were just babies.
  • Assisting companies in their efforts to bring in gifted immigrants to help save lives and grow the economy.
  • Successfully representing the first same sex immigrant-US citizen couples in their petitions for green cards through marriage.
  • Stopping deportation.
  • Not accepting losses very easily.
  • Not losing very often at all.

This is how I go about Defining the Best Immigration Lawyer.
