“Why are you here today” is a question that nearly all clients of The Gambacorta Law Office hear upon arrival for their consultation. Historically, many clients sought immigration legal help “to pursue their American dream” of coming to and staying in a country that gives them the opportunity to do whatever is in his or her heart. But, immigration opportunities have become slim pickings these days as a result of increased security and a lackluster economy.
But still, people come thousands of miles many times traveling across an ocean to experience perhaps a better opportunity. These are people who have taken all their life savings to purchase an airline ticket to travel to the United States when in all actuality, an increased risk exists that perhaps they might not even be able to gain entry into the United States upon their arrival. Or, if they do manage to gain entry, the time often comes when they have to leave before their authorized stay expires. Those that overstay their welcome here risk years of prohibited entry in the event they depart the United States at some point. Other foreign nationals might be fortunate to obtain permanent residency either though a family member or employment but commit what we call a trivial crime, perhaps something as little as a DUI. That foreign national may be arrested by the immigration authorities and told to come to immigration court. Does that mean that the foreign national will be deported? Is the crime even one that can trigger the grounds of deportability? Grounds of Inadmissibility? What is an aggregated felony?
These are the challenges that immigration attorneys encounter on a daily basis. The stakes are high in immigration law. Perhaps a foreign national commits misrepresentation or fraud to an immigration officer. Unfortunately, without a waiver, that foreign national may be barred from the United States for life. Timothy A. Gambacorta of The Gambacorta Law Office, LLC understands that the field of immigration law is laden with pitfalls and is often an intensely emotional area of the law. Often, immigration lawyers deal with the separation of children and parents and if one of the parents is abroad and the rest of his family is in the United States the significance of bringing the family together is never more important. Yet this is what Mr. Gambacorta does for a living. He understands the risks involved and respects each and every one of his clients as they were a member of his own family. He knows firsthand on a personal basis what it feels like to be separated by an ocean from family members for an extended period of time.
With that said, Mr. Gambacorta has striven to provide superior legal services in nearly all areas of U.S. Immigration law. He has prevented families together in the United States by having deportations canceled. He has arranged for the father (whose U.S. Citizen spouse and three children are in the United States) who had no choice but leave the United States per an Administrative Order to eventually come back to the United States – this time on a permanent basis to be with his family. He has aided in the development of businesses by investors who want to contribute to the U.S. Economy. He has also helped an undocumented spouse of a military serviceman become a legal permanent resident without leaving the United States and facing perhaps years abroad waiting for the opportunity to once come back again.
