Real Lawyers. True Advocates.
Our immigration law services are founded on the principle that immigration attorneys should be knowledgeable, forceful voices for clients in the offices of immigration officers, but compassionate and caring advisers to our clients. As a result, we are not just form fillers. Maryam Al-Zoubi and Damjan Denoble are litigators, and you will find us in immigration court and before the Board of Immigration Appeals as often as you will find us in the office.

- Naturalizations for all family members, including adopted children

Each family immigration case is assigned to a whole team, with multiple lawyers:
Our firm’s founder, Damjan Denoble, is a pioneer in a technique of legal practice called massive collaborative representation, i.e. “Big Immigration Law.” In the detention context the term refers to the ability of a large number of attorneys or groups of legal practitioners and advocates to work together on discreet parts of a single case, introducing greater efficiency, more thoroughness, and a robust set of checks and balances on work quality into the process of immigration law. While Big Immigration Law was designed for the detention center context, at Bull City Lawyer we have applied key principles of this representation technique to how we organize, complete, and follow up on our cases.
Technology is baked into our approach to family immigration representation:
Using Innovation Law Lab technology, and empowering each member on our team to contribute to a case file, we capture a maximum amount of useful information in a case. We are able to then better empower ourselves to do a good job for our clients, and we are able to better apprise the client of key case developments. In the context of a critical interview, application deadline, or appeal of an application, this organizational approach is invaluable to our work and to our case outcomes. We also try use technology to assist clients in the completion of paperwork and the self-evaluation of immigration options, as well as in communications and document exchange with our firm once an attorney-client relationship is established. Truly, while we do have trust in expertise, we also understand that the availability of algorithmic assistance from technological applications is a boon for the better practice of law. For our clients this provides an added layer to ensure that papers are filed on time, that legal arguments are packed with the best, latest, and most relevant case law, and that, no matter what, our clients can have access to us from whatever location they are in, or whatever device or computer they have on hand.
At the end of the day, we prefer being thorough over being anything else:
We have invested heavily into building out a team of personnel and a legal infrastructure customized to family immigration law because the requirements of dealing with immigration agencies are immense. There are forms, there are deadlines, and there are surprises. Because each case we take on will lead to a major life change for the people we represent, we prefer to be thorough over anything else, and that sometimes means that we will move in a slower way than other firms. We may file an extra freedom of information act, or research an additional tricky issue, just to make sure that our client’s case is not compromised. We work on flat fees, so this does not run up our clients’ bills. Rather, it fulfills the promise we make to each client that we will mount a vigorous representation on their behalf.
