Our Immigration Law Services

The Law Offices of Michael J. Gurfinkel, Inc. offers a wide variety of legal services for you and your kababayan, including:


Deportation/Removal Defense

Our attorneys provide staunch representation in Immigration Court to fight deportation. We will explore various forms of relief, including adjustment of status, waivers, cancellation of removal, and more, so you can keep the life you have built in the U.S.

Family-Based Immigration

Our lawyers will assist you in petitioning to bring your family to the U.S. We will help you obtain visas for relatives, whether you are a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident, and resolve legal roadblocks that might keep your family apart.

Employment-Based Immigration

Our lawyers will assist you in obtaining an employment-based immigration visa, so you can enter the U.S. and gain meaningful, well-paying employment. The U.S. issues only 140,000 permanent employment visas annually, so we will work to get you a high chance of approval.

Adjustment of Status

Our lawyers will help you become a green card holder and achieve lawful immigrant status in the U.S. We will review your eligibility for permanent residence, gather the required documentation, and address the potential legal issue and problems in your case.

Application for U.S. Citizenship

Our lawyers will assist you in applying for U.S. citizenship so that you can enjoy the benefits and privileges citizens are entitled to. We will explain the naturalization process, address possible legal obstacles, and guide you every step of the way.

The Attorney of Last Hope


Atty. Michael J. Gurfinkel has earned the moniker Attorney of Last Hope because of the “hopeless” cases involving Filipinos that our law firm took in. Other attorneys turned down these cases and told the clients there was nothing more they could do.


However, with our immigration law expertise and our commitment to the Filipino community, we managed to obtain a favorable resolution for these cases.


Our dedication is our main driving force. Our work goes beyond practicing law — we make a difference in the lives of our Filipino friends. We have helped families reunite after many years, save loved ones from deportation, helped skilled Filipinos, caregivers, etc., get well-paying employment, and make a better future for their children.
