Helping Non-Citizens Build a Bridge to Their Future in the United States

Whether your goal is to travel to the United States; live in the United States; work in the United States; study in the United States; or flee to the United States to escape dangers at home—you should look to a knowledgeable and dedicated immigration attorney to help you achieve your goal.  At the firm of J.W. Hanks Law, I provide skilled representation regarding a broad range of immigration, citizenship, and visa issues for individuals, spouses, employers, and families across the nation.

Be Part of America’s Great Immigration Tradition

Immigrants and non-immigrants have been at the foundation of American society.  Generations of immigrants founded the United States; built the United States’ transcontinental railroads; and launched the United States into space; and today they are business owners, teachers, soldiers, and community leaders.  Non-immigrants study at United States’ universities, compete in athletic events, work for companies large and small, or simply come to visit United States sites and culture.  Let J.W. Hanks Law help you be part of the next generation of immigrants or non-immigrants living and playing in the United States.

  • Discuss your legal option

You are Not Alone

The United States Immigration system is complicated, constantly changing and usually involves confusing paperwork. In addition, immigration petitions submitted to the United States government are legal documents, similar to filing court documents for a lawsuit. An improperly filed petition can delay or even destroy your chances to travel, live, or work in the United States. In the same way, not having sufficient representation during a deportation hearing or other immigration-related court appearance could harm your case. I help you with a range of immigration issues, and I work diligently to provide creative strategies to help you find a legal pathway toward success in this country.
