About us

Our Firm

Yunus Law is a full service law firm focusing on Immigration and Nationality law. We also have expertise in family law issues, particularly as they relate to Immigration, such as international adoption, obtaining special immigrant juvenile status in state domestic relations court, and domestic and international divorce.

With expertise in employment-based immigration, family-based immigration, and removal/deportation defense, Yunus Law is able to provide clients with a comprehensive immigration solution with foresight into all potential immigration consequences.

We treat each client as the firm’s only client and believe in providing true advocacy. Navigating through the waters of immigration and its various governmental entities can be both confusing and difficult. With Yunus Law, you will not only have an experienced Attorney draw a map to reach your immigration goals, but we will guide you through the journey every step of the way.

We are committed to providing an honest and thorough assessment of each client’s particular situation. We have seen too many clients led down an often dead-end path in the interest of money making or time saving. Here at Yunus Law, we first define our client’s immigration goal and then determine the path that will achieve that goal most efficiently and with the most likelihood of success. We present all options in a clear, understandable manner such that our client’s can make an informed decision about their future.

48-Hour Contact Guarantee

We are committed to providing direct access to the legal expertise our clients need to realize their immigration dreams. No more paralegals, assistants, or long wait times to reach your Attorney. Too many clients have experienced delay in hearing back from their lawyer, which has resulted in detrimental immigration consequences. Here at Yunus Law, we understand the time sensitive nature of Immigration matters. We provide our clients with a 48-Hour Contact Guarantee. We guarantee clients a thoughtful and thorough response from your Attorney within 48 hours of contact with Yunus Law. This ensures that your case is a top priority for our firm and no deadlines, government notices, or client concerns or questions fall through the cracks.
