The United States is a country of immigrants. Sadly, our legislation is often focused on excluding rather than welcoming visitors and new residents to our country. The U.S. Immigration system is slow, complex, and costly. Navigating the various visa categories, the visa bulletin, and filing a case that does not lead to problems further down the immigration path is a daunting task. At Northwest Immigration & Criminal Defense LLP (NWICD), we help you approach this task tactfully and with sensitivity to your individual needs.
From the time you come in for an initial consultation in English, Spanish, or Russian, our attorneys will do their best to understand your particular goals and align those goals with the reality of our immigration system. In the U.S. immigration system, there is often more than one way of accomplishing the same objective. Which of these routes is the best choice depends on the individual.
NWICD attorneys have both personal and professional experience in the U.S. immigration system. We understand how stressful it can be to place your hopes and future in a strangers’ hands. Because we understand, we try to get to know our clients and give them the opportunity to get to know us. Here, you are more than a form, a filing fee, or a receipt number. You’re an individual with the dream of starting a business, earning a degree, uniting your family, marrying the person you love, or just seeing a little more of the world we all share. We hope to help you realize your dreams as your attorneys and watch them unfold as your friends.

Northwest Immigration & Criminal Defense LLP (NWICD) is committed to providing vigorous representation for individuals charged with crimes in Oregon. NWICD attorneys have worked on both the defensive and prosecutorial sides of Oregon courtrooms and we use our diverse experience to achieve the best possible outcome in your case.
In addition to advocating on your behalf in the courtroom, we want to understand how you came to be involved in one of the most difficult struggles of your life. We’re here to build your case and tell your story. Part of understanding your story is understanding you. An NWICD attorney can speak with you in your language—whether it’s English, Spanish, or Russian—so you don’t have the added stress of explaining your situation in a foreign language.
We believe being there for our clients also means being available and open. We’ll be there in the courtroom but we’ll also be on the other end of the phone. Being charged with a crime is an emotional and stressful experience. We want you to call us to discuss your case but also to work through the effects the case is having on your life.
Part of communicating openly with our clients is being straightforward about fees. During your consultation, we will listen and ask questions to better understand the nuances of your case. By the end of your consultation, we will be able to quote you a price for NWICD representation. Quality legal services are not cheap but we want you to understand what you will pay up front, so there are no surprises once we get to work.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about how we at NWICD work to defend individuals in Oregon. Criminal charges are often time sensitive and obtaining skillful representation as soon as possible can make a difference in your case. Please call us with any questions or to set up a consultation.
