Herndon Immigration Attorneys

Immigration Services for Families and Individuals in Fairfax County

At The Law Firm of Ruiz Dougherty, PLLC, located in Herndon, Virginia, our attorneys are dedicated to providing legal guidance and representation in immigration cases. We understand the complexities of U.S. immigration law, and we are committed to helping clients navigate the challenges they may face, providing them with experienced legal help. From assisting with applications for visas and Green Cards to addressing specific concerns related to asylum or deportation, our firm is equipped to handle every aspect of immigration law. We can assist with:

Family-Based Visas

Family unity is a cornerstone of U.S. immigration policy. Our attorneys help U.S. citizens and permanent residents bring family members to the United States through Immediate Relative visas and Family Preference visas. We can also help couples get married through fiancé visas. We can provide guidance throughout the visa application process, including filing petitions, submitting documentation, and preparing for interviews.

Green Cards

Obtaining lawful permanent residency is a goal for many immigrants. Whether through family, employment, or other eligibility categories, our firm guides clients through the Green Card application process, ensuring compliance with all procedural requirements and addressing any legal challenges that may arise.

Employment-Based Immigration

We assist employers and employees in obtaining professional work visas and employment-based Green Cards. We can help address issues related to labor certifications, temporary work visas, investor visas, and immigrant visas for employees. We can also ensure that our clients take the proper steps to maintain employment eligibility.

Waivers of Inadmissibility

Issues related to inadmissibility can obstruct a person's path to a visa, Green Card, or naturalization. Our attorneys are adept at navigating these complex issues, helping clients obtain Waivers of Inadmissibility and address concerns related to prior removals, criminal convictions, medical issues, or unlawful presence.

VAWA and U Visas

Victims of domestic violence or crimes that have had an impact on their physical or mental health may have pathways to legal status in the U.S. through options such as the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and U visas. We provide confidential and compassionate legal assistance to help victims continue living in the U.S. while protecting their safety and stability.

DACA and Special Immigrant Juvenile Status

We assist young immigrants who came to the U.S. as children or abused, neglected, or abandoned minors take steps to avoid deportation and maintain a legal status in the United States. We can help address concerns related to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program or Special Immigrant Juvenile (SIJ) status. Our firm stays abreast of policy changes to ensure that we can advocate effectively for the rights of minors and help them maintain stability while living in the U.S.


For those who have faced or are likely to face persecution in their home countries, seeking asylum can provide a refuge, preventing deportation and ensuring that they can live safely in the U.S. Our attorneys handle asylum applications, represent clients in asylum interviews, and provide robust defense in court proceedings to ensure that the rights and stories of asylum seekers are heard and respected.

Deportation Defense

The possibility of removal from the U.S. may be a concern for many immigrants. Our firm offers vigorous defense for people in deportation proceedings, exploring all avenues such as cancellation of removal, adjustment of status, and asylum to fight for our clients' ability to maintain their legal status.

Citizenship and Naturalization

We guide permanent residents through the process of becoming U.S. citizens through naturalization. We can assist with the application process, ensuring that the correct forms and documents are submitted, preparing for citizenship tests, and addressing any potential complications related to the applicant's background that could affect their application.
