When People Find Us, They Stop Looking
U.S. Citizenship & Family Immigration Expertise
Welcome to the website of Lee & Garasia, LLC. We are a full-service immigration law firm located in Edison, New Jersey, handling matters both state and nationwide. If you or someone you know is dealing with an immigration issue, we invite you to explore our website and contact us for further information.
Immigration law is an exceedingly complex area of the law and has become a specialty in and of itself. In over more than a decade of practice, our attorneys have seen and heard it all. We practice exclusively in the area of U.S. Immigration and Nationality Act, with a special focus on Family Immigration, U.S. Citizenship and Naturalization, Waivers, and Detention and Deportation Defense.
Over Two Decades
There is no substitute for experience. Since 1997, we have helped individuals, families, and companies realize and accomplish their immigration goals, whether that means becoming a United States citizen, filing for someone’s permanent residence status or fighting to stay here.
We have successfully represented people before legacy Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Customs and Border Protection (CBP), the Department of Justice, the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR), the Department of State, the Department of Labor, and the Motor Vehicle Commission.
To Your Needs
Besides U.S. Citizenship, Immigration Court and Marriage/fiancé(e) cases, we have additional experience in interview representation. On top of regularly appearing on more than a weekly basis at the Newark District Office in New Jersey, our attorneys accompany clients to their citizenship and immigration service interviews at Mount Laurel, Philadelphia and New York City. We also regularly represent clients before the Immigration Courts in Newark and the Elizabeth Contract Detention Facility.
We are available to counsel clients with deferred inspection appointments at Newark Liberty International Airport, as well as those summoned to report to the local ICE field office on Frelinghuysen Avenue. Due to the way our firm is structured, we can visit and consult, on short notice, with detained inmates held at ICE holding facilities throughout New Jersey, including Delaney Hall, Bergen County Jail, Essex County Correctional Facility, Hudson County Correctional Facility and the Monmouth County Correctional Institution.

Attorneys Who Care
We take pride in our work and proven track record of getting results. Every client of ours receives individual attention. We make it a point to know our clients personally, understand their situations, educate them, and provide them with real answers. If there is little or no relief available to you, we will speak to you honestly and counsel you on the best alternatives. Alternatively, if there is something that our firm can do for you, we will zealously represent you, utilizing both our superior knowledge of the law and practical experience dealing with the government — both of which are necessary components of effective advocacy.
We bring knowledge, experience and accountability to the table. You will be hard-pressed to find these crucial elements of representation in either an “immigration consultant” — usually someone with a “fly by night” office who is not licensed to practice law — or even another law firm that does not concentrate in immigration or handle cases like yours on a regular basis.
