A Well Credentialed Immigration Attorney in Chicago

The firm’s owner, Matthew Katz, was a Chicago Public School social studies, debate, and law program instructor for seven years.

How We Are Different From Other Immigration Lawyers in Chicago

We are not only learned scholars and advocates who consistently win our clients’ cases, but we are humble, down-to-earth, real people that you can talk to and relate to you as a friend.

Katz Law Office, Ltd. prides itself, not only on its immigration attorneys’ superlative credentials, experience, and rate of success in handling immigration matters, but on its client sensitivity. In developing the firm, Mr. Katz has brought his high school teacher experience into the legal profession by training his staff to be client-centered and client-sensitive. Our attorneys listen first, ask questions, and later explain the law in a common-sense manner that makes it easy for everyone to understand. We are friends and confidants as well as immigration lawyers.

Another thing that makes our Chicago based immigration attorneys unique is the ability to think creatively about your case. We have resolved numerous cases where our clients believed in their initial free consultation that no solution was available to them, yet often by thinking outside the box to develop a creative strategy we are able to obtain an approval in their case. In the business visa arena, for example, often where one visa type is not viable, another option may be available.

Our Mexico City office has been open since 2007 and has provided an outlet for our immigration lawyers to provide a free consultation to individuals in Latin America who otherwise would not have had access to U.S. immigration law expertise. We have obtained business visas, work visas, tourist visas, and U.S. permanent residency visas for numerous individuals through the Mexico office and our Chicago offices.

We invite you to join us in a free consultation with an immigration attorney in our Chicago location. They will sensitively and enthusiastically help you understand the options available to you in your immigration matter.
