Oltarsh & Associates, New York Immigration Attorneys

For nearly 50 years, the midtown Manhattan law firm of Oltarsh & Associates has practiced in the field of immigration law. Our law firm is located near Macy's, Penn Station and Times Square. We serve clients from all the boroughs of New York City, including Queens, Brooklyn, the Bronx and Staten Island as well as New Jersey.

New York is America's quintessential melting pot. Our immigration attorneys work on a variety of immigration issues, including business visas, work-related and family-based immigrant visas, waivers, deportation hearings and naturalization proceedings. We also handle LGBT immigration cases. We speak (and write) Spanish, English, Mandarin, Italian, Polish, Romanian and Turkish.

The lawyers at Oltarsh & Associates work with each client on an individual basis; we get to know you personally. Your immigration status is important to us. You won't get lost in the shuffle or be treated like a number when you entrust your immigration case to us.

In addition to working with U.S. Immigration, we take cases to the Administrative Appeals level or to the Board of Immigration Appeals. If it becomes necessary, we will go to the U.S. District Courts and the U.S. courts of appeal.

One of our lawyers is always available for a free evaluation. Call or email to schedule a visit with an immigration attorney.
