Washington Immigration Lawyer Gives Clients Total Support

Seattle attorney has detailed knowledge of U.S. residency and visa rules

At Thorley Defense Law, I provide strong guidance for people in all types of U.S. immigration matters. As an immigrant myself, I have first hand knowledge of how stressful and confusing this country’s laws and regulations can be. My passion for the United States has fueled my desire to help families and individuals seeking a life here. From office in Seattle, my firm handles removal defense, spousal visas and a wide range of actions, such as VAWA petitions and asylum and refugee proceedings, to help individuals who are threatened by violence or persecution. As someone who holds Canadian citizenship, I also regularly assist clients at the U.S-Canadian border who wish to work here or have difficulties in entering the country.

Strong advocate assists clients seeking a safe haven in America

Even when people face threats in a foreign country or a violent home, it can be challenging to secure protection within the United States. My firm tirelessly advocates for relief under the various humanitarian programs, including:

  • Asylum and refugee status — People who are exposed to danger in their homeland can apply for asylum status (if already in the United States) or refugee status (for those still in their own country). I have volunteered with the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project and successfully argued asylum cases on a pro bono basis before the U.S. Immigration Courts in Seattle and Tacoma.
  • DACA — Rules governing the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program have been hotly debated over the past several years. I am vigilant about staying up to date on the latest developments and offer thorough assistance to clients who were brought into this country as children and are determined to remain here.
  • VAWA — Women and children who have been victimized by domestic abuse committed by a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident can petition for an adjustment of status that allows them to find a safe home and stay in the country. My firm advises self-petitioners under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and fights to give them the safe environment they deserve in the United States.

As immigration and visa issues are governed by federal law, I am able to represent clients in courts throughout the United States. My firm is dedicated to making the process as easy as possible by offering a free initial consultation, flat fees and payment plans to make your case affordable.

Seattle litigator handles removal defense, spousal visas and green cards

Rules set by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) are complicated and subject to frequent changes. Whether you’re looking to obtain a green card signifying lawful permanent resident status, bring your spouse or fiancée/fiancé to this country or adjust your immigration status, I will make sure that everything is in order before you start the process. My firm will assess your chances for a successful outcome and make sure that time and money are not wasted. Likewise, if you have received a Notice to Appear related to a removal action, I take aggressive action to prevent your deportation, even if an arrest or document problem is being used against you.

Firm advises Canadians on TN NAFTA professional applications

With ties to Canada and the United States, I am particularly qualified to handle TN visa applications that are available to Canadian citizens under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Whether you are an individual seeking entry to work in the United States, or a business looking to bring a Canadian employee to this country, my firm will make sure that you have proper documents and credentials before starting the process.
