Sacramento Immigration Lawyers
We Can Help You in the Pursuit of the American Dream
The American Dream has rarely felt so far away and unattainable for some as it has in recent years. Politics and policies have shifted dramatically, making it more challenging for foreign nationals to visit or live in the United States. Areas of immigration law, like DACA, remain in seemingly constant flux, and the number of deportations remains high.
America remains the country of promise and liberty. However, the journey to obtain that new life on American soil may require professional assistance.
While you may be tempted to consider navigating the complicated immigration system on your own, it is highly recommended that you seek the legal counsel of lawyers who are well-versed in cases like yours. The immigration process can be long and unforgiving, with minor errors resulting in denials or delays. When the risk of losing your case means potential deportation or being denied the right to enter the country, you want to feel confident that all legal options have been considered and all forms have been correctly submitted.
At the California law firm of Landerholm Immigration, A.P.C., our attorneys have years of experience helping clients and their family members through the complex process of immigration.

“I will continue to recommend Landerholm Immigration to anyone that needs help. Thank you for being there every step of the way!”- Dalia R.
In situations where an individual enters the United States unlawfully or has overstayed their visa, the government may see cause to begin removal proceedings and see the immigrant deported back to their home country. While this situation is difficult and needs to be treated with respect, one should not assume that their situation is hopeless. It is possible to fight deportation orders in immigration court with the proper legal defense.
As your immigration attorneys, we will work to secure a bond for anyone in custody, ensure that the proper forms are filed before their deadline, and represent you before the immigration judge.
There can be no guarantees in courtroom matters, but your chances of seeing your rights upheld dramatically improve with an experienced attorney representing your best interests.
