Not just family-based immigration law

We realize that you may have other legal needs besides unifying your family or securing your own immigration status.  While Reingold Law is first and foremost a family-based immigration law firm, we are proud to have represented or advised clients in a variety of other legal matters, including business immigration, contracts, intellectual property, employment law, consumer finance, and landlord-tenant, among others. 

Now, that does not mean that we do not know our limits.  Whenever we believe that we are about to operate out of our element, we always consult with attorneys who are experienced in that particular practice area for seasoned guidance and advice.  And, importantly, whenever we believe that we are not the right law firm for your problem, we will help you find one that is.
