New York City Immigration Attorney

More Than 25 Years of Legal Experience

At my law firm, The Law Offices of Lloyd E. Bennett, Esq., P.C., I am able to assist individuals throughout New York City who are dealing with immigration matters. My office is easily accessible to New York City residents since it is located just two miles away in Union City, New Jersey. In fact, because my office is located outside the borders of New York City, I am able to provide even more competitive pricing. I am a New York City immigration lawyer who has extensive experience, as I started practicing law in 1987 and have assisted thousands of individuals with immigration matters. I am an active member of The American Immigration Lawyer Association's New York Chapter, and I have previously served as the Chapter Chair of the same organization's New Jersey Chapter.

Immigration in New York City and the State of New York

New York City is the most populous city in the country. It is also the foundation of the New York metropolitan area, which is the nation's most populous metro area.

According to the Migration Policy Institute, New York was the U.S. state with the second-highest number of immigrants (4.3 million) and the second-highest share of immigrants within the total state population (22%) in 2010.

More Than Just a Case Number

When I work with my clients, I understand that these individuals are more than just case numbers—they are people who need help with issues that have great impacts on their futures. For this reason, I provide each client with the compassionate and attentive service he or she deserves. While doing this, I also serve as an aggressive protector of the client's rights. My law firm is able to provide assistance for individuals who are dealing with all types of immigration issues, from applications for citizenship to employment-based immigration.

Some individuals need help protecting themselves from possible deportation, or removal. Others might need help with bringing loved ones to the U.S. through family-based visas, including marriage and fiancée visas. Whether I am helping someone obtain green card or I am seeking deferred action through the Dream Act for an individual who entered the U.S. as a minor, I am ready to provide to provide high-quality legal guidance each step of the way. My goal is to help my clients reach outcomes that allow them and their families to build stronger lives in this country.
