Navigating the ever-changing United States immigration laws by yourself can be extremely difficult. And when your immigration status is on the line, you don't want to take any chances. That's why we recommend you find a Charlotte immigration lawyer with ample experience.

At Gorman Law Firm, our staff has been guiding clients through these processes in English and Spanish for over 25 years. No matter how complex or simple you believe your immigration issue to be, we will apply our work ethic, experience and intellectual rigor to create solutions tailored to your needs. We can assist you with investor visas, employment permits, family visas, citizenship, naturalization or deportation defense. And if you have been the victim of domestic abuse or violence, you might be eligible for protection under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).

Often, immigration issues also contain elements of family law, criminal defense or financial matters. Our founding attorney Ruth Gorman has a diverse professional background both as a certified public accountant (CPA) and attorney. Contact us to put our unique skills to work for you.

We can assist in a variety of cases including, but not limited to

  • Family Based Petitions

  • Deportation Litigation
  • Immigration and Criminal Defense

Family Law

Family-related matters are often laden with emotions and difficult decisions, and frequently include complex legal issues that are better addressed with the assistance of an attorney. At Gorman Law Firm, we recognize that family is important — that's why we take a holistic approach to family-related issues to provide empathetic, efficient, and cost-effective legal services for North Carolina families.

Traffic

Under North Carolina law, traffic tickets may be issued for a broad spectrum of offenses. These violations range from driving without a seat belt and speeding, to more serious offenses such as DUI/DWI and reckless driving. While it might seem cheaper and easier to plead guilty and move on, these offenses can lead to lasting damage to your driving record, loss of driving privileges, and extremely high insurance rates. Often this will cost more than if you had hired an attorney. Seeking counsel on these matters can help get your ticket reduced or dismissed - and that's where we come in. Avoid court fees, points on your license, and damage to your record by calling Gorman Law Firm today.

  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
