Most people think of New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago or Miami when it comes to immigration attorneys. And that stereotype does carry a lot of water, as the majority of the immigration lawyers in the country are in those cities. But what if your family needs an immigration attorney and you find yourself living in Detroit or the Detroit suburbs?
There is nothing to worry about, Detroit has many high quality, local attorneys who specialize in immigration law. The purpose of this page is to give you a simple directory of those Detroit immigration law firms. There will be two lists created, the first for the attorneys who have offices in the city limits of Detroit and the second batch will be for firms that are in the suburbs. In case you are wondering you can also find a more comprehensive list at the AILA (American Immigration Lawyers Association) website. A link to their search portal is here: AILA's Immigration Lawyer Search (ailalawyer.com)
