The Law Offices of Martin Schwartz provide legal counsel for immigration cases while all field offices of US Citizenship and Immigration Services remain closed, in response to the COVID 19 situation. Martin Schwartz is an immigration, criminal, injury, and civil law attorney whose law firm has served the local community for more than 26 years.
“Many people are worried and wondering what will happen to their immigration case because the field offices are closed until at least May 3, says Mr. Schwartz. I am here to represent and help people who need guidance and information at a time when there is a lot of scary misinformation circulating and causing concern.”
Appointments are available through WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, and telephone, with evening and weekend availability. “In addition, we are taking extraordinary measures at our law firm including daily sanitation with anti-bacterial cleaners, keeping staff 6 feet away from any in-person visitor, and making cloth face masks available for purchase. “We have a strict screening process for in-person visits,” Mr. Schwartz adds. “We are keeping our waiting room and office as clear as possible and only allowing minimal physical presence, only when absolutely necessary.”
