Family-Based Immigration Legal Services

Dornbaum & Peregoy offers its clients a full array of family based immigration legal services including both Immigrant Visas ("green cards") and Nonimmigrant (temporary) Visas.

Immigrant Visas including:

IR Immediate Relatives of U.S. Citizens Spouses, Unmarried Children and Parents

F-1 Unmarried Sons and Daughters of U.S. Citizens

F-2A Spouses and Children of Permanent Residents

F-2B Unmarried Sons and Daughters of Permanent Residents

F-4 Brothers and Sisters of U.S. Citizens

Nonimmigrant Visas including:

K-1 Fiancés Fiancées of U.S. Citizens

K-3 Spouses of U.S. Citizens

Consular Legal Services

Both Immigrant and Nonimmigrant Visas are adjudicated/issued at U.S. Embassies and Consulates overseas. Given the extraordinary bureaucratic delays of the Department of Homeland Security - Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services (former Immigration and Naturalization Service) in adjudicating Applications to Adjust Status (to Permanent Resident) within the U.S., consular processing abroad of Immigrant Visa Applications often offers individuals and dependent family members a faster track to obtaining their green cards. Dornbaum & Peregoy's Immigration, Nationality & Consular Practice Group offers its clients the resources to effectively deal with every U.S. consular post abroad.

Naturalization Legal Services

After obtaining permanent residence, individuals may elect to pursue U.S. citizenship through naturalization. U.S. residence and physical presence are required for varying periods of time depending upon how one obtained his green card in order to qualify. Other criteria affect one's eligibility for naturalization often making the process more complex than initially apparent.

Our Practice Philosophy

Meticulous attention to detail, creative problem solving and a result oriented focus are hallmarks of Dornbaum & Peregoy's practice. Our approach to work is always prophylactic - the most effective way to deal with a problem is to prevent the problem before it occurs. Often, careful planning and foundation building at the initiation of a case will ensure a smooth process on the track to the desired result.

We recognize the cost-value of time to our clients, particularly in the world of business where time and money are fungible. We strive to provide legal representation of the highest quality and value to our clients. The unique background of our staff and full array of Immigration Legal Services provide Dornbaum & Peregoy's Practice Groups with the specialized tools to effectuate our clients' business and personal immigration goals in a timely cost efficient manner.

Our Clients

Dornbaum & Peregoy regularly represents domestic and foreign corporations, individuals, and families before the Department of Homeland Security - Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services (former Immigration and Naturalization Service), the Department of Labor, the Department of State, as well as before U.S. Embassies and Consulates abroad.

About Client Rating
About Peer Rating

Welcome to Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review, a new ratings service that allows you to view and provide feedback on a lawyer or law firm on service and relationship qualities such as Communication Ability, Responsiveness, Quality of Service, and Value for Money.

Determining a Rating

The Client Review Rating is determined through aggregation of validated responses. This compilation of Client Reviews translates to a numerical rating and associate descriptive term on a scale of 1 -5. 1 being lowest as "Rated" and 5 being highest as "Preeminent".

  • 4.5-5.0 Preeminent
  • 3.0-4.4 Distinguished
  • 1-2.9 Rated

Martindale-Hubbell uses a third-party resource to validate that the respondent is a living person, but cannot confirm the lawyer/client relationship, which in many cases is confidential. Clients must affirm that they are a client of the lawyer or firm identified for review at the time of the completed Client Review.

The Reviewers

Those who complete Client Reviews are clients of law firms who hired a lawyer within the last year, whose matter is not pending, and want to share their experience of that lawyer or law firm with other potential clients. Reviewers can be of any type from in-house counsel, corporate executives, small business owners to private individuals, and even sometimes another lawyer in a different jurisdiction.

Anonymity

Client Reviews are anonymous and reviewers' identities are not published; however a summary of basic demographics will be part of the display of responses.

Why do we collect demographics as part of the review?

Those who are researching a lawyer or law firm like to see that there are other clients who might be "like them". This is valuable information contributing to the decision-making process of hiring a lawyer.

Martindale-Hubbell's role

Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the process of Client Review by gathering responses, validating them and aggregating results for display online. The content of the responses are entirely from reviewers, the clients of the firm or lawyer.

It is important to note that Martindale-Hubbell does not undertake to develop Client Reviews for all firms and lawyers. Therefore, the fact that a firm or lawyer has not been reviewed should not be construed unfavorably. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome and Martindale-Hubbell accepts no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any review over which Martindale-Hubbell exercises no editorial review or control.
