Trusted Tennessee Immigration Attorney in Knoxville

Creating options for families and their futures

America is a nation of immigrants; it is what makes us one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world. The path to America can be difficult, however, when you’re still learning the laws and customs of your new home. If you feel a little anxious or confused, that’s okay – we are here to help you through the immigration process, and to answer your questions.

When you need help, Patrick Slaughter is there for you. Our Knoxville-based office serves immigrants and their families from around the globe, and we want to help you too. We are genuinely excited to help you on your path to Tennessee (or anywhere in America). When we don’t know an answer, we tell you – and then we get to work finding it out. You can trust in us to help you at every step.

What we do

We handle every immigration claim there is, from helping you understand complex forms to fighting for your rights when your status is in jeopardy. You can rely on us for help with:

  • There are many rules regarding whether or not an immigrant may be removed from the States. We assist immigrants facing removal by reviewing their cases, filing appeals and fighting for justice on their behalf. We also help families with immigration bonds when their loved ones are being held in custody of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and defend you when you’re faced with Cancellation of Removal. We got to both Memphis and Atlanta to ensure that your case is handled correctly and by us.
  • Asylum claims. When your life and freedom is in danger in your native country, you may be able to seek asylum here in Tennessee. We work with refugees seeking a safer life and people from countries given Temporary Protected Status to prepare your claim for asylum. We also offer payment plans that are fair and reasonable, so that you don’t have to feel stressed over money.
  • Green cards and visas. Whether you’re looking for a temporary visa so you can work in Tennessee or seeking a permanent visa or residency for a new life, we can help. We offer guidance to those who’ve been granted status through the Diversity Visa lottery, seek a fiancé visa or don’t know what to do to help their family immigrate to the States.
  • Naturalization and citizenship. When you’re ready to become a citizen of the United States, we can help you plan and prepare. We love helping immigrants with naturalization and citizenship, and will answer whatever questions you have about the tests and requirements to become a citizen.

We also offer help understanding and filling out I-130, I-485 and I-589 forms, which can be difficult to understand and complete. We handle all claims involving an adjustment of status, and explain what you need to do to remain in compliance with State and Federal regulations.

We want what is best for you and your family, and we offer you support and counsel to help make those dreams come true. Patrick always answers or returns your calls – even when you call at night – because communication is the cornerstone of our practice.
