James J Frankie's legal services focus primarily on nonimmigrant, immigrant, and naturalization petitions. For each of these petitions, I strive to efficiently streamline the process, provide my clients with clear and concise information throughout every step, and ultimately assemble the strongest petition possible. While immigration matters can be complex and sometimes daunting, I am committed to providing the guidance and representation necessary to help ensure a positive outcome and hopefully make each petition process a rewarding experience.
