Common Immigration Cases We Handle

Every situation is different, and each person’s immigration journey will require a unique approach. We will work closely with you to discuss your concerns and identify available benefits that meet your needs. 

Our Walnut Creek immigration attorneys can assist you with cases involving:

  • Asylum Claims. If you have been persecuted or fear future persecution in your home country due to your race, religion, national origin political beliefs, or membership in a particular social group, you may be eligible for asylum protection. We can help you seek refuge in California and guide you through each step of the process.
  • Family Immigration. United States citizens and lawful permanent residents can sponsor certain types of relatives for green cards, which allow recipients to live and work in the United States on a semi-permanent basis. If you would like close family members or your fiancé to join you in the U.S, we can assist with the applicable applications.
  • Visas. Our firm can assist you with both immigrant and non-immigrant visas, including employer-sponsored green cards, temporary work visas, visitor visas, student visas, treaty trader and investor visas, diplomat and official visas, and visas for victims of human trafficking, crime, or abuse.
  • Naturalization and Citizenship. Many immigrants hope to eventually become permanent United States citizens. Only lawful permanent residents can initiate the naturalization process after meeting certain requirements, including maintaining several years of continuous and physical presence in the country. We can determine if you are eligible for naturalization, assist with your application, and help you prepare for the citizenship exam and in-person interview with a USCIS officer.
  • Waivers and Appeals. A visa application may be rejected for a wide spectrum of reasons, but we can handle the appeals process and will do everything possible to help you access the benefits you need. If you or a loved one has been ruled inadmissible to the United States, we can also explore what waivers may be available and assist you with seeking the appropriate relief.
  • Deportation Defense. If you or a loved one are facing removal proceedings, our team at Ratner Molineaux can provide aggressive legal representation. Depending on your circumstances, we will contest charges of removability or request applicable relief. You may potentially be eligible for an adjustment of status, asylum protection, cancellation of removal, or one of several other remedies.

  • “Highly Recommend”
    Highly recommend. Laid off without notice by a shady Pre IPO lender in San Francisco. No one was given severance and they hired a labor attorney ahead of the layoffs to try and get around paying severance and warn notice. Without this firm taking my case, I would have never received a dime. Do not let a lay off without any severance deter you, contact this firm. Odd thing was 1 letter from this firm and severance was immediately offered. It's a game these high-tech companies are playing and gambling on. Their bet is 98% will not do anything severance and for the small percent that do, the amount to pay versus provided all in the layoff, is pennies on the dollar. Get your documentation, all emails, take photos of slack messages, record any zoom calls where there is a statement " no one is getting laid off" and so forth. Records any zoom calls where you are laid off. Take notes. Protect yourself and family. Working all the holidays and 12-hour days to be let go with nothing, is ridiculous. Use this firm and provide all your documentation. Good Luck!

  • “Extremely Satisfied”
    I was referred to Ratner Molineaux after my daughter and I suffered injury and property damage resulting from a defective product in our home. During my very first conversation with David Ratner, I found him to be straightforward, professional, and extremely responsive to my concerns. Thereafter, David took the time to walk us through each and every stage of the litigation process and was an excellent advocate for my daughter and I. He remained fiercely protective of our interests and represented us well during mediation, preparation for trial, and settlement talks. David's style is very direct and to the point, which might be off putting for some, but worked well for me since I tend to be laser focused when dealing with business matters. Near the conclusion of my case, I had the opportunity to meet his partner Shelley, who had also diligently and effectively assisted with our litigation. In the end, our result was more than adequate, and both my daughter and I walked away extremely satisfied with both the representation we'd received, and the outcome of our claim. I definitely recommend this firm.

  • “Professional opinion and experienced perspective”
    reached out to Ratner Molineaux after a previous attorney referral did not follow through despite the time sensitivity of my issue. The Ratner Molineaux team responded quickly to schedule a consultation on a work-related matter. David Ratner reviewed my issues and provided options and great advice how I could proceed. It was great peace of mind to have a professional opinion and experienced perspective. The consultation with David Ratner gave me the confidence and knowledge I needed to make my final decision.
