Why Batara Law?


How We’ve Helped Clients From More Than 70 Different
Countries Achieve Their Immigration Dreams


The practice of immigration law is more than just a job.

Helping others to live, work, and go to school legally in the United States is not just my profession. It is part of my family heritage.

Immigration rules are strict. Each year they become stricter. As more and more immigrants seek to become legal residents, the U. S. government has made the process tougher and tougher.

My dad was an immigrant. I sometimes ask myself, if he was still alive, how would his applications to become a permanent resident and U. S. citizen have been handled by the U. S. government today?

Would my father have needed to hire an immigration attorney to help him? How would that attorney have helped him as a client? How would that attorney have treated him as a person?

My father’s spirit guides me when I represent clients. Every case I handle is done in his honor and memory. Every immigrant I assist is a reminder of his courage and inner strength – the same courage and inner strength all immigrants need in order to succeed.

As your immigration lawyer, you can count on me. I will be a hard-working, tenacious, and dedicated advocate for your immigration needs. After all, every immigrant I help is a tribute to my father . . . an immigrant who made it possible for me to enjoy the many benefits of living in the United States.

I know and appreciate the immigrant experience.

I cannot guarantee the final result. I will not make false promises. If I cannot help you, I will let you know right at the start. But once I accept your case, it’s based on my belief that I can make a difference in helping you and your family reach your immigration goals.

blockquote_start Every human being and every case is special. Difficult circumstances cause good, honest, hardworking people to seek legal help. At such times, the legal system can seem confusing and unfair. My job, as their attorney, is to provide not only assistance and expertise, but also compassion and commitment.
