WHERE DO MOST IMMIGRATION LAW FIRMS FALL SHORT?
Many of our clients come to us after having a bad experience with another immigration law firm. These are the complaints we hear most often:  THEY LACK EXPERIENCE AND EXPERTISE - they don't have legal talent with the expertise, experience and training to win the difficult cases, and they lack critical non-legal skill sets needed to give best-in-class service to immigration clients.  THEY ARE INEFFECTIVE - they do a passable job processing straightforward immigration applications, but their success rate in more challenging cases is disappointing. THEY OVERCHARGE YOU - they charge lawyer rates for work that could be done more efficiently by non-legal professionals, working under a supervising lawyer.   The result is that you pay too much - often for work that could have been done better and faster by a properly structured immigration team.  THEIR CUSTOMER CARE IS LACKING - in too many immigration firms, once you pay you become a "case number". After that, you don't hear from them until they need you - and you can't reach them when you need them. THEY ARE INACCESSIBLE - they lack the in-house multi-language communication abilities, convenient office locations and staff availability to properly serve you. Essentially, they become inaccessible.

About Us

Ira Heller Law Immigration, LLC ("IHL Immigration" or "IHLI") is the immigration services subsidiary of Ira Heller Law, LLC,  a law firm based in Union, NJ, specializing in immigration, family law and general litigation.

All too often, immigration clients have come to our Law Firm after disappointing experiences with other immigration firms, with their needs unmet and a familiar litany of complaints.  By listening to their grievances and considering new approaches, we became convinced there was "A Better Way To  Do Immigration."  So we formed IHL Immigration, with a mandate to create a new vision of what an immigration law firm should be, and turn that vision into reality.

First, we put together an "Immigration Legal Team" ("ILT") consisting of immigration lawyers with the best mix of  talent, experience and expertise in immigration law that we could muster.  Ira W. Heller Esq., who leads the firm from our NJ office, is an American-born, American-trained lawyer with impeccable credentials and years of experience in a range of legal specialties.   Julienne Maribao, who heads up the West Coast office in LA, is an immigrant herself from the Philippines.  She made the journey to America, was admitted to the bar in California, and has garnered 15 years of experience in a broad range of immigration law.

Next, we put together an "Immigration Support Team" ("IST") combining a broad range of non-legal skill sets to enable IHL Immigration to process immigration cases â€" always under the direction of our Legal Team â€" with maximum effectiveness and efficiency.  Each member of the IST speaks several languages and has first-hand area knowledge of several countries.  They also have skill sets directly relevant to immigration work, ranging from legal research and writing to other disciplines, including information management, advanced customer service practices and systems, and international relations.  

By combining the skills of our Immigration Legal Team and those of our Immigration Support Team we can give our clients better, faster and more effective service, and give them a level of customer care most ordinary law firms simply do not provide. We can do this at prices that are, on average, 20% to 30% lower than those of our competitors.

At the end of the day, we've created "A Better Way To Do Immigration" because we LIVE immigration.   We have members in both our Legal Team and our Support Team who are accomplished immigrants themselves.   But even the American-born members of both teams have years of international experience, and have worked closely with immigrants during their professional lives.  

We have "walked in our clients' shoes" in more ways than one.   Which is why IHL Immigration is all the more equipped to bring the business of immigration law to a whole new level of competence and service.
